wisconsin heights player was impaled by the court. the board had split in the middle and stuck into the young player. her mom - the coach - was quickly by her side. "it was 3 to 4 inches long and in some parts, probably a quarter to a half inch deep." minutes later emergency crews show up, and everyone else is asked to leave the gym. "we thought they were going to have to remove an entire board and take the board to the hospital." they didn't have to that, but the eighth grader was loaded-up on a stretcher and spent the night at the hospital. none of her internal organs were hit by the wood. "i don't know if we'll ever hear something like this ever happening again anywhere." hibner is especially surprised it happened here, in middleton... where the floor is just 15 years old. for now... a replacement sliver of wood is glued and guarded by garbage cans. it should be permanently fixed in the next week or so.
