Section star hurt in Immanuel hoops win
Zoe March, a Bee All-Star point guard last year as a freshman for D-V champion Immanuel, is questionable for the second-seeded Eagles’ Central Section Division IV semifinal at home against No. 3 Taft Tuesday after reinjuring a knee.
March, who had missed the first 11 games of the season with a knee problem, had reached "unrestricted minutes" status for the first time, coach James Stevens said, before "tweaking" the knee in warmups ahead of Thursday's 50-28 win over No. 7 Washington.
She didn’t play in the first half, played the third and came out limping in the fourth.
Never miss a local story.
"She’s on ice and we'll wait and see if there's swelling (Friday)," Stevens said.
Samantha Swan scored 14 points as Immanuel improved to 20-6 with the win over Washington.
