Ligament injuries to the knee are very common in sports that require stopping and starting or quickly changing directions. Marengo Community High School standout soccer player, Alexa Torman, knows this all too well, after returning to the soccer field after more than a year away.
Alexa returned to the soccer field on March, 16, 2010, after having major knee surgery on her right knee to replace her posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and lateral collateral ligaments (LCL).
During Alexa’s comeback season, she scored 21 goals and dished out 8 assists. She has participated in all drills and games and has played around 70 minutes per game. She scored in 13 consecutive matches tying her for 5th on the IHSA all time record list. She was a unanimous all-conference selection.
Her father, Don Torman, credits her success to all of the hard work she has done and the dedication of Dr. Brian Cole and physician assistant, Kyle Pilz.
