Lafayette High School – Home of the Lancers!
By: Angie Vitale (MAT Class of 2015)
This past semester I was given the opportunity to be at Lafayette High School with athletic trainer Heather Carroll ATC from PRORehab. Located in Wildwood, MO, Lafayette is home to the fighting Lancers. Under Heather’s supervision, I was able to experience a wide variety of sports, and was able to work with sport related injuries in football, cross country, soccer, basketball, volleyball, swimming, and field hockey. As the only athletic trainer for such a large number of athletes, Heather never has a dull moment at school. With all sports practicing at once, Heather and I spend most of our afternoons running from one practice to another, always anticipating the next radio call.
