Taking a knee
Editor’s note: This is the first segment in a story about Ohio High school sophomore Kaitlyn Hughes ACL injury and her road to recovery.
OHIO — Late last January, the LaMoille/Ohio Lady Lions were in the midst of finishing a tough basketball season. The team had suffered injury after injury including concussions and bruised shoulders. While playing Henry on Jan. 22, the team’s sophomore, Kaitlyn Hughes, added a blown ACL to that list.
“I remember somebody made a basket, and I was getting back on defense; and then they made a pass, and I went to block the pass, and I jumped. I felt it right when I jumped. Then when I landed, I just fell. I remember looking at Coach (Richard Gross) while I was in the air, knowing that something was wrong. I felt my knee cap pop out of place, and then I remember screaming on the ground,” Hughes recalled.
