Utah's Kari Lee Is Out For the Season With Achillies Tear

Sad news from Salt Lake City today.

News has come that University of Utah sophomore Kari Lee tore her Achilles tendon earlier today in practice.
She is due to receive surgery for her injury on Friday.  This sadly means Lee will be out for the rest of the season.

The Utes are currently ranked 6th in the NCAA with an average of 196.342. Lee has been a huge contributor to the Utes on vault bars and beam so far this year and they'll no doubt be scrambling to fill the spots she left behind. The Utes still have stellar performers in Baely Rowe and Maddy Stover, who scored a 9.9 and a 9.925 against Oregon State last weekend, as well as the gaggle of freshmen eagerly awaiting their turn to get into a line up. Freshman Sabrina Schwab has been showing clean, beautiful performances on floor and in pre-season workout videos, she showed the same elegance on beam.

We will have to see how Utah adjusts their line-ups sans Lee.

Here's wishing Kari the best of luck on her surgery and fast healing!
