Noble tears ACL, out for season

Elliott Pratt

Injuries continue to plague one Lady Topper – this time for the remainder of the season.

Freshman guard Kendall Noble tore her right anterior cruciate ligament in WKU’s victory over Kent State Thursday night and will miss the rest of the year.

Noble will receive a medical redshirt, keeping her four years of eligibility.

“Any coach does not want to hear that about their players,” said coach Michelle Clark-Heard. “I am really sad that the fans did not get to see Kendall Noble this year. The greatest thing about that is we will have her for four more years and everyone will have the chance to see how special she is.”

This isn’t the first time Noble has suffered a similar injury. She tore her left ACL at the conclusion of her junior year at Perry County Central High School.

Noble saw the court in just two games for the Lady Toppers this year. She totaled nine points and 10 rebounds combined in WKU’s wins at Morehead State and Kent State.

The Lady Toppers are back in action Sunday when they host Southeast Missouri State Sunday at 2 p.m. in Diddle Arena.
