my 16 year old, hot shot volleyball libero, collided with another player while diving for a ball yesterday.
She complained of being popped in the nose, hit in the neck and shoulder. She sat out a few points and then went back on the court to rally her teammates to victory (but not winning the match).
She played so well after the "hit", that other coaches sitting around me were commenting on how they wished they had a defensive player with her skill and toughness.
I was very proud
It might not have been the best move
last night she developed some of the classic symptoms: massive headache, sensitive to light and noise, threw up several times, dizzy, weak......
It was a long night.....
we do have an appointment later today at the Ben Hogan Concussion clinic in Ft Worth.
last year it was the ACL, now this. Good thing volleyball isn't a contact sport.....
