Washington got more bad news on the injury front when senior Kevin Forrest, the 2006 Pac-10 Player
of the Year, was lost for the rest of men's season due to a stress fracture in his left foot.

Forrest, who had been feeling pain, was diagnosed with a stress fracture in the navicular bone of his left foot, an injury that was confirmed on Friday.

Forrest finished his UW tenure with 34 career goals and 75 career points. His 34 goals rank eighth on UW's all-time list and stand two behind his father, Ward, who racked up 36 goals while playing for the Huskies from 1972-75. Forrest's 75 points were two shy of matching his father for 10th on the UW all-time list for points.

"Kevin's season ending injury has caught everyone by surprise and we really feel sorry for him since this is his final season with us," UW head coach Dean Wurzberger said. "I know Kevin is terribly disappointed that he can't continue on the field but we intend to use his leadership, experience and enthusiasm to help guide the team throughout the rest of season. Kevin has been a real success story with our program since his arrival back in 2003, and has excelled both on the field and in the classroom. The good news is we are confident that Kevin will play again in the near future and hopefully realize his dream of a professional soccer career."

Forrest is the third Husky to go down with a season-ending injury this year. Starting goalkeeper Rylan Hawkins suffered a facial injury in UW's contest at New Mexico, and freshman defender Jamie Finch, who played in one game, is out for the season after breaking his ankle in practice earlier in the year.

Junior midfielder Jo Jo Katz (torn ACL during spring season) and senior midfielder Steve Mohn (broken leg during summer league play) are also missing the 2007 season due to injury.
