All-American center Hannah Munger recently checked in with an update on the knee injury she suffered during last season’s NCAA Div. III championship game.
Hello again everyone!
I just wanted to give a quick update on my knee. Thanks again to those who have been praying and asking about me. My Juniors Abroad trip to East Africa in the month of May was absolutely fantastic! I got to see and experience so much while traveling through Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Zanzibar for three weeks. The Lord blessed me with good health and a strong knee the whole trip. I felt his presence very strongly while traveling and his hand of protection over me the entire time.
And now it has been over six weeks since my surgery in Portland on May 30th. Dr. Colville took such good care of me and delivered the good news of a successful surgery. There was no other damage found besides a torn ACL, which was repaired with my hamstring tendon. Dr. Colville even expressed his surprise when he didn’t find any meniscus damage, and I know the Lord had a hand in that.
My mom drove up from California to stay with me and take care of me post-surgery, and my roommates and teammates continue to support me now. I have been meeting with a physical therapist and doing pool therapy, and have been told my recovery is right on target.
This summer I am living in Newberg and have been blessed with job opportunities that allow me to focus on my recovery and getting ready for the upcoming season! I am most definitely planning on having another great season and am going to come back fighting even harder! Again, thank you to all who have expressed concern and prayer for me during this time. I am overwhelmed with how taken care of I am in this community and am so thankful for the encouragement and support.
Many blessings, and I’ll see you all in December!
