We had some technical issues yesterday, but I am back with my three things that have had me thinking.
1. ACL/MCL injuries in high school sports seems to be becoming an epidemic. It seems that every season at least one or two players from a couple of our area schools goes down with one of these injuries. The most recent victim, NCU's Dehlia Wright, lost the bulk of her soccer season after sustaining this injury in late September, and she will spend her snowboarding season rehabbing in order to hopefully be ready for spring soccer.
BRADFORDâ€“The North County Falcons football team lost to Oxbow 32-22 on Saturday.
