At 8-3-1 and 2-0-1 in the Atlantic-10, Dayton is off to a great start. What makes the Flyers' start so special is that four starters have come back from knee injuries.
Senior Kim Sachersuffered her knee injury snowboarding. Fellow seniors Amanda Gallow and Deana Waintraub have rebounded from knee injuries as sophomore midfielder Cara Cornacchia.
UD head coach Mike Tucker said knee injuries are far too common in women's soccer.
"It's devastating whenever it happens," Tucker toldFlyer News. "You almost count on one every year. It's hard because you know when it happens that you can't count on that player for a minimum of six months and in some cases a year."
