ROCKFORD – Abby Woollacott joined the 13 Sports Authority this past Friday for its Catching Up at City Market series, and spoke about how difficult it’s been to maintain optimal health at NIU.
“Meniscus surgery on my left and right, and actually two on my right because I tore through the repair.”
Woollacott is about to be a senior for the NIU women’s basketball team and she says one lessons stands above the others during grueling rehab sessions to get her knees back in shape.
“How much you love basketball when you can’t play and you’re watching your teammates play, but you learn to be really appreciative.”
