Lacrosse Injuries: Hilary Bowen Of Northwestern Women’s Lacrosse Tears ACL In Left Knee And Is Out For Season

hilary-bowen-northwestern1For 51 straight games, Hilary Bowen focused on her job: scoring goals. Two minutes into Saturday’s game against California, Bowen’s focus shifted to a different feeling: pain.

The extent of her left knee injury suffered in the opening minutes of Saturday’s 21-4 victory over the Golden Bears may be more serious than anticipated.

Bowen reportedly tore the ACL and strained the MCL in her left knee, in addition to a small fracture in her left tibia, the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reported Tuesday.

“It’s weird because I’ve never been injured before,” Bowen told the Democrat and Chronicle in a telephone interview Monday night.

After an MRI on Sunday, she will reportedly meet with her doctor this week to determine if her career at NU is over.

“I have absolutely no idea,” Bowen told the Democrat and Chronicle. “Right now, my doctor is in Japan and we’re waiting for him to get back.”
