Corinne DeVirgilio- Women's Soccer
As a freshman, Corinne was a starter for the nationally ranked women's soccer team.  She injured her knee at the height of the season in a home NCAA Playoff game in November of 1998.  While going for a 50-50 ball her knee gave out and she felt a pop.  She was evaluated and removed from the field by the athletic training staff and diagnosed by Dr. Steve Zabinski with an ACL tear of her right knee.  The team went on to win the game but lost the following day in the Sweet 16.  Corinne then began 4 weeks of "prehab" to strengthen her knee and increase her range of motion as much as possible before her surgery.  At the end of November she had the ACL reconstruction performed by her orthopedist Dr. Hosea at University Orthopedics in New Brunswick NJ.  She returned to Stockton and began her early post-surgical rehab until the end of the semester.  She underwent physical therapy during the break at home at HealthSouth in Freehold, NJ.  When she returned to Stockton in January she began an intensive rehabilitation program, five days per week.  This continued for four months until the semester ended.  Corinne was probably the most diligent, dedicated, and hard working student athlete to ever go through rehab at Stockton.  By May she had returned to sprinting, jumping, hopping, and running activities.  She continued her progression through the summer on her own at home.  She began her return to soccer in the pre-season training camp during August of 1999.  By September she was back on the game field as a starter for the soccer team.  She has made a significant contribution to another outstanding season for the Women's Soccer Team who finished 16-4 and won an ECAC Championship.
