Ally Batenhorst Injury Update: Outside Hitter Misses Few Games For Nebraska
Ally Batenhorst has suffered an abdominal muscle injury.
According to the Huskers coach, John Cook, the Sophomore outside hitter might be missing a few games.
Coming back from an impressive freshman season, Batenhorst is one of her team's top 4 outside hitters. She started the game against Creighton but was subbed off in the first set.
The 20-year-old outsider suffered a muscle injury and left the game in the first set. Her suffering was also evident when training with Jolene Emricson, the athletic trainer.
Cook has always held Batenhorst in high regard and said she would be a significant miss for the team. He wants her to take some time off the pitch so that it doesn't develop into a recurring injury.
“It’s one of those things where they’re hard to heal up," The coach said on Huskers radio, "You try to get back, but it can just be one little thing that sets it off again."
"She started the match, and I could tell she was off. I go, ‘Are you OK?’ and she said yeah. And then when she came out the second time, she said, ‘I don’t think I can play.’” Cook elaborated.
Batenhorst's injury has rightfully put concerns on a lot of Huskers fans. Her return remains unknown for the time being as the coach is giving her time to rehabilitate both physically and mentally.
But we know she is a demanding customer and will return to her playing ways in no time. Let's learn more about the Nebraska sophomore who set her footprints in the first year.
