CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - The University of North Carolina men's lacrosse program will miss the services of junior midfielder Duncan Hutchins during the 2013 season as he will be undergoing back surgery and will redshirt this season.
Hutchins, a Baltimore native, who has run on UNC's first and second team midfield units over the past two years has been troubled by back issues since his arrival at Carolina. In consultation with doctors, he elected to undergo surgery in January and will miss the spring semester at UNC during his recovery. He will return to school in the summer and it is anticipated he will make a full recovery and be ready to compete at Carolina in 2014 and 2015."Although I will miss playing with my teammates next semester, I am ready to put this nagging injury behind me and finish my last two years healthy and competing for UNC," said Hutchins.
