A World of Pain

Alaina Soto, Staff

Doubled up in pain, getting injured is something that occurs often especially when it comes to sports. One wrong move and you could be out for the season, or worse. Do the athletes think about what could happen, and how injuries could effect their futures? “No, I’m only focused on now and not the repercussions of the future,” reflected Alex Soto (12). Soto had dislocated his shoulder, but was already back on the field in no time. How can injures effect athletes outside of school? “I have anxiety. I don’t jump on trampolines anymore, having an injury takes you out two weeks per ankle surgery,” answered Hayden Franek (12), who has screws in her ankles for stability.
