USF volleyball suffered a blow to the already struggling offense Tuesday when the starting libero Kelsi Andrew-Wasylik injured her elbow diving for a ball.
Andrew-Wasylik and teammate Ashley Reavis collided on the floor in the first game against the Rattlers.
“I was going for the ball, and I don’t really remember what happened. I ended up getting hit,” Andrew-Wasylik said. “It was a collision between me and another player, and I just kind of snapped (my elbow) back at a wrong angle.”
Doctors have not diagnosed Andrew-Wasylik yet besides telling her that she did not break her arm.
The condition of her elbow has yet to be diagnosed because of the swelling, and the only other sign of an injury besides the swelling is a bruise she suffered during the collision.
She will remain in a cast for another week when she will go for more X-rays.
“It’s nothing completely serious,” Andrew-Wasylik said. “I should be back in a couple of weeks.”
Andrew-Wasylik will not play against Florida tonight but will be on the sideline cheering on her teammates.
“It’s going to be painful to watch,” Andrew-Wasylik said. But, we’re ready for this. We’ve been waiting to play them since last year.”
