Everything fell in place for the host Golden Warriors to wind up second at the 69th Annual Sterling Night Relays last Friday.
Senior Zaina Rumbolz, however, was reduced to watching her teammates under a blanket near the pole vault area.
Rumbolz was diagnosed with hyperflexion in her left ankle after landing on the pole vault pit in a dual at Rock Falls last Monday.
“When I landed, I couldn’t get up,” she said. “I really thought my season might be over, and I just sat there and cried.”
Rumbolz is optimistic about returning to action this week, but couldn’t help feeling down after being honored on Senior Night last Friday.
