Washington F Liz Lay will not play in the Huskies’ exhibition opener against Seattle Pacific on Thursday due to soreness in her left knee. Lay only appeared in 20 games last season after rehabilitating from right knee surgery.
The soreness stems from compensating for the original injury. At the team’s media day today, coach Tia Jackson described the soreness as returning to lift weights after not using the knee much.
“I feel like they’re improving and I’m looking forward to really being 100 percent finally,” said Lay, who lost 25 pounds in preparation for the season and betterment of her knees. “I’m being really positive because it’s better [for this to happen] now than in February. I feel like I worked really hard to where when I do come back, it won’t be such a negative.”
Teammate Lydia Young, a senior, also did not practice today due to soreness in both of her knees. She’s listed as day-to-day. Jackson is hopeful for her to play against SPU.
Sophomore’s Mackenzie Argens and Mollie Williams are vying for the starting position in place of Lay. Returning starter Sami Whitcomb, a senior, will start alongside junior Sarah Morton at PG, Sara Mosiman on the wing and sophomore Regina Rogers, a transfer from UCLA, at center.
