A Message from Hannah Munger

Earlier today All-American center Hannah Munger sent President Baker an update on the knee injury she suffered in last Saturday’s NCAA Div. III championship game, and a message for her fans.

President Baker,

First, I want to tell everyone in the Newberg and George Fox community how much your support and prayers have meant to my teammates and I this past season. We have been incredibly blessed to be a part of such a faithful and loving community. This support has been especially encouraging to me during the time of my injury from Saturday’s game. My doctor and the George Fox Athletic Training staff received the results from my MRI and have informed me that I tore my ACL and bruised a bone in my right knee. I am in the process of scheduling an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon to discuss what the next steps will be. There are many things I have to consider before making any future decisions so please continue to pray for me as I talk with my family, the coaching staff, my teammates, and the athletic training staff to make these decisions. Ultimately, these uncertainties will become clearer after I meet with my surgeon when I get back from spending time with my family in California for spring break. I will be sure to keep everyone informed as I begin to gather information and make my decisions. Again, thank you to everyone for offering up so much support. I feel truly blessed to be a part of such a community.

-Hannah Munger

  2. Hannah,
    I don’t know you personally but can see you are a spirit driven person. You are an inspiration to many of us who played athletics at Fox and are a tremendous ambassador of the game. Thank you for being such a class act in tough times. Heal quickly and continue your stewardship and loving spirit.

  3. Hannah-
    As a fellow Fox student, I loved watching you this last season and all the incredible things that you and your team accomplished. When you went down in that final game, I was devastated. At the time, I was about four days from my own ACL repair surgery, and the last thing I wanted to hear was that you might have to go through the same thing. Now today, I’m laying in bed, three days post-op, spending my spring break recovering, and I can guarantee that I and my family will be adding our prayers to the multitudes I’m sure are already praying for you. I really can image the decisions you are looking at and the discussions you will undoubtedly be having with your parents and doctors.
    So I will pray for guidance for you and the doctors, and the strength that you will need to get through this difficult time
