Reynolds Suffers Torn ACL

April 6, 2012

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa freshman Kathryn Reynolds suffered a torn ACL in her left knee during offseason workouts Wednesday afternoon.

This is the second injury to Reynolds’ left ACL. She tore the same ligament six games into her junior season in high school.

“It’s always tough to see one of your players tear an ACL for the second time,” head coach Lisa Bluder said. “We were really looking forward to seeing Kathryn’s improvements throughout offseason workouts. She has great skills and our depth at point guard is very thin right now. Kathryn is a tough competitor and we expect her to make a full recovery.”

Reynolds played in 21 games as a freshman and averaged 6.1 minutes per contest. She netted 13 points and dished out 15 assists on the season. She scored a season high four points vs. Drake and tallied a season best five assists against Western Illinois.

Reynolds will have surgery within the next two weeks. The date is still to be determined.
