Injured MVP is out for season


Last years game, the Lady Bunnies took on Bellevue East and left everything they had out on the court.

Sports injuries can be absolute worst for not only the athlete, but the team as well. Having to watch their favorite sport being played and not being able to go out there, compete, and take part in because of an injury, can be dreadful. It can be even more challenging for those who are more valuable and reliable on the team’s behalf, such as junior Je’Sani Green.

Green, the starting center for the Bunnies, is out this basketball season, after tearing her ACL.

“I went up for a lay-up and when I came down, with my upper body shifted to the right,” Green said. I’d wrongly landed and found out later on that I’d tore my ACL in my right knee.”

Green was disappointed that she wouldn’t be able to play this season due to her knee. She just loved the game that much.

“Of course, I’m still going to go and support my team throughout their season,” Green said.

While the team is practicing, Green will be partaking in physical therapy working and improving the movement in her knee for a good and healthy comeback.

“My team are my sisters, and I can’t wait to watch them play hard and leave everything they have out there on the court this year,” Green said.

The team is expecting Green back in late February, early march. She’ll be back and better than ever for next season for sure, helping lead her team to unlimited victory.

“Rest up coach D, in loving memory,” Green said. “All this is going to be for him.”
