Junior volleyball player Skylar German wants another conference championship so bad it hurts – literally.
The Central Athletic Collegiate Conference (CACC) reigning player of the year has spent the early part of this season nursing ankle and foot sprains and is playing with a torn labrum, an injury she plans to get surgically repaired after this season.
“I feel it, but the pain of sitting out and not playing with my teammates hurts more than the injuries.”
German and her teammates have picked up where they left off last season, as CACC champs and NCAA tournament participants. The Eagles are currently 13-5 (6-1 in CACC) and have won eight of their past nine matches.
