The old about how if it wasn't for bad luck seems to germane for Guelph Gryphons guard Ali Dzikowski, unfortunately.
Dzikowski, a former National Elite Development Agency player, injured her ankle Wednesdany after playing only one minute on the floor in the Gryphs' win over Brock. This came just hours after friend of the blog Greg Layson had written a very nice article for the Guelph Mercury about Dzikowski having come back not only from major knee surgery, but also a blood clot.
It's unfortunate. Dzikowski, an alumna of the KW Lightning travel team which has also produced OUA standouts such as Laurentian's Darrah Bumstead and former Queen's point guard Teddi Firmi, plus University of Vermont standout May Kotsopoulos in NCAA Division 1, had been playing very well since OUA play resumed earlier this month. One hopes for the best.
Greg, the most dedicated and most prolific reporter on the OUA beat, also had articles Wednesday on Gryphons track and swimming. Click through, because you care.
