Lombard is back!

Kate Hardwick, Staff Reporter

Paige Lombard recently dealt with a severe ankle injury which kept her from playing in two preseason games and three season games.  Paige says she does agree with Coach P’s decision to not play her due to the risk of a season ending injury.  Although the Canes managed to pull through without her, Paige is happy to be back!  She has now played two games with the girls since recovering.

“I’m so excited to be back on the field with the team!  Sitting out and watching the game was torture because it made me want to play even more,” said Lombard.

Paige’s first game she played in was against Largo where she scored her first goal of the season as well!  The second game she played in was against Countryside in which she helped pull the Canes through with a 7-0 victory.

“I know my ankle is healed for the most part but i still plan to take it  easy and keep doing my strengthening exercises,” said Paige.

Paige plans to play her third game on thursday against Tarpon. Come out and support your Canes.
