An MRI on Monday revealed Juneau-Douglas senior forward Sarah Tarver suffered two torn ligaments when she severely sprained her ankle just after tip-off in Friday’s Southeast Conference championship game win over Ketchikan.
Her availability for the upcoming state tournament remains questionable, but Tarver will spend the week rehabilitating the ankle before being re-evaluated next Monday, her mother, Robin Mason, said.
She also said the good news from the MRI is the bone chips found in Tarver’s ankle during her original examination over the weekend were established as a previous injury dating back to soccer season of 2008.
According to www.webmd.com, a sprain causes the ligaments around the ankle to stretch and possibly tear.
