Eckart to Miss NJAC's with Ankle Fracture

Ronika Eckart fractured her left ankle when she was involved in a fall while practicing the hurdles on 2/19/08. She fractured her left fibula just above the malleolus. The injury will cause her to miss the NJAC Championships on Monday. Eckart also had qualified for the ECAC's and provisionally for the NCAA Championships in the long jump with a distance of 17' 10". She also qualified for the ECAC's in the 55m hurdles. The injury will not require surgery but her ankle will be casted for 3-6 weeks. The injury also puts her outdoor track season in jeopardy. "Ronicka is going to need 3-4 weeks of rehab after she gets out of the cast before she'll be ready to start competing again." commented Jessica Spencer, MA, ATC, Athletic Trainer. Eckart is also the Stockton College record holder in the outdoor 100m hurdles.
