Wood To Miss 2-4 Weeks Following Knee Surgery

Jan. 25, 2008

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - Loyola senior forward Meghan Wood had successful arthroscopic surgery of her right knee on Wednesday, January 23, and will miss two-to-four week of action, Greyhounds Head Coach Joe Logan announced today.

Wood has missed the last three games due to pain and swelling in the knee. She last played on Friday, January 11, when Loyola played Marist.

"We are pleased that Meghan's surgery was successful, and we look forward to her return," Logan said. "We miss her presence and leadership on the floor in games and practice, but because of her extraordinary condition and work ethic, we expect her to make a quick recovery.

Loyola's Team Orthopedic Physician, Dr. John O'Donnell, repaired the medial meniscus in Wood's knee. Wood began a rehabilitation program later that afternoon.

In 14 games this season, Wood leads the Greyhounds with a 9.4 points per game average. She also is second on the squad with 6.6 rebounds per game and is third in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference with a .526 field goal percentage.

The Greyhounds return to the floor tonight when they face Iona on its home court at 7:30 p.m.
