Injury bug bites: St. Mary-of-the-Woods basketball trying to get and stay healthy

TERRE HAUTE — A myriad of injuries have plagued the St. Mary-of-the-Woods women’s basketball team in recent seasons, forcing the Pomeroys to compete on numerous occasions with just seven, six and sometimes only five players able to play.

With 11 players on this season’s roster, SMWC coach Deanna Bradley is cautiously optimistic that those days are thing of the past. Still, the injury bug has not quite been eradicated from this year’s team.

“This has been a season like many others … we’re battling injuries,” Bradley said last week. “We have 10 players able to play, although four of them are only back at about 60 percent. At least they haven’t been season-ending injuries. If we can get healthier and stay that way, we’ll be OK.”

Current players battling injuries include freshman Lauren Miller (missed three games after her foot was stepped on), freshman Whitney Allen (missed two games with an ankle injury), junior Abby McKee (missed time due to knee surgery) and junior Brooke Brown (playing, but her shoulder could dislocate at any time).
