Burkart Returns from Knee Surgery in Three Weeks

Amanda Burkart injured her knee during the summer while playing volleyball. She was diagnosed with a meniscal tear of her right knee and had arthroscopic surgery for this injury on August 21st, 2007. She began rehad with the Stockton Athletic Training staff on 8/27. She came in 4-5 days per week. "We didn't really do anything special with Amanda, her knee recovered very quickly and she progressed ahead of schedule." commented Jon Heck, Coordinator of Athletic Training. She was cleared to play in her first match on 9/15/07, but was limited to 1 match in the tournament that day to see how her knee would respond. She had 23 kills in her return and had no problems with her knee. She has led Stockton to two additional conference wins against Rutgers-Camden and Rampapo, recording 18 kills in each match. Burkart was a first team NJAC All-Conference in 2006 and second in the NJAC in kills.
