Corral gets good news from MRI
Heather Corral will miss another game, but her season is not over.
Her doctor is giving her another week off of basketball, but she expects to return to the court in time for the opener of the Class 3A bi-district tournament next week.
An MRI revealed a bone bruise and minor cartilage damage in her left knee, according to Heather’s father, Art.
Heather Corral tore her ACL in the left knee last season.
Her doctor believes that an ankle sprain this season led to her knee overcompensating, causing pain and discomfort. She will sit out until next Wednesday to give the ankle and knee time to recuperate.
That means Corral will miss the district tournament championship game Friday night.
The Falcons have already assured themselves a berth to the bi-district tournament. If Prairie wins the district title, the team will open bi-district on Feb. 17. If Prairie loses in the district title game, the Falcons will open bi-district on Feb. 15, the day Corral is expected to be cleared to resume basketball.
Corral, who has signed with the University of Washington, is hoping to help the Falcons back to the state tournament. Prairie finished second at state last year, with Corral missing the final five games of the season after suffering her ACL injury.
