Cary’s Jamie Rogers back on top after year off with injury
October 5, 2012Cary High School
CARY - When you’re one of the state’s top tennis players, there is almost never a good excuse to put down the racket longer than a week. But Cary High’s Jamie Rogers had no choice.
In July 2011, Rogers said she was riding her bike too fast down a wet trail. While turning to go uphill, Rogers and her bike fell over.
Wedged between the bike and the ground, her right ankle turned backward. “It would never happen again, even if I tried,” she said.
Her body went into shock, saving her from the immediate pain. Others on the trail came to her aid, but none could save her sophomore season.
As a freshman, Rogers lost just three singles matches and had hoped to make a run at the 2011 4A state championship. With a broken ankle that required a metal plate and screws, it would be another five months before she could walk, and nine before she could play.
“It was terrible. I had never taken more than a week off from tennis,” Rogers said. “I felt really behind.”
