St. Mary’s senior Britta Curl will have a shorter track and field and soccer season than she anticipated.
The three-sport athlete will potentially be out of action two months with wrist surgery.
The injury stems from a broken wrist Britta suffered in the eighth grade.
Britta thinks she can compete in the javelin by the end of the season, but activities where she could fall are off the table.
“It was a decision I had to make for hockey because that’s what I want to be back for next year in college,” Curl said. “It’s not easy because I love track and soccer. I always want to be playing that in the spring.”
This fall, Britta is committed to play hockey at the University of Wisconsin.
