Varsity Girls Soccer player Addison Steiner will not be able to play for the remainder of the regular season. Steiner tore her MCL in the Girls Soccer season opening loss to St. Theresa’s last Thursday. On Tuesday Steiner found out that she will not be able to play for the remainder of the girls varsity regular season.
In the final seconds of the first half Steiner initiated contact with a Saint Theresa’s player. The injury occurred as both of their feet collided with the ball. According to Steiner she “pulled a few ligaments and strained her MCL”. Tuesday it was confirmed by doctors that Steiner had suffered a stage 2 MCL tear to her right knee. With this injury she will be out 6-7 weeks which will bench her for the entire regular season. However according to Steiner she is hoping to be able to play in the Lancers first round playoff game.
“It’s obviously not something you ever want to happen,” Steiner said. “But the doctors are keeping me optimistic and all I want is to be back playing with my team helping them win state.”
Steiner is hopeful that the exercises along with the brace that was prescribed by her doctor will help her get back on the field as fast as possible.
