Confirmed ACL injury: Madayag out for the season

Ateneo de Manila middle blocker Maddie Madayag will miss the remainder of the season after suffering an ACL injury.
Ateneo de Manila’s worst fears were confirmed Wednesday afternoon.
Lady Eagle middle blocker Maddie Madayag was ruled out for the season after suffering a right knee anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear Tuesday during Ateneo’s training.
The Katipunan-based squad’s bid for a three-peat faces a major challenge with the absence of the second year Davaoena, who has been playing consistently in the 78th UAAP women’ volleyball tournament.
“Confirmed ACL. For surgery na po siya. Surgery, after Holy Week,” said Lady Eagles’ team manager Tony Liao in a text message to ABS-CBN Sports after receiving the test result from Dr. Raul Canlas.
Madayag, who averaged 7.3 points in 10 games for Ateneo, went down with a knee injury during the Lady Eagles' spiking drill.
Recovery from an ACL injury usually takes six to eight months.
The Lady Eagles are on top of the standings with an 8-2 win-loss record.
Liao said that they are looking at Amy Ahomiro and Bea De Leon to fill in for Madayag’s position.
