The Heat Index wonders if Naperville North seniors Jon Bunge and Dan Orna have injuries that will prevent them from playing when the state playoffs begin next week.
Maybe they played on Thursday night in a loss to Wheaton Warrenville South. I don't know because I was in Stevenson for the boys water polo state shindig (not that I would have gone to watch North when Central was playing for a share of the DVC, but this is not the point, don't ruin my momentum). Since the Huskies lost 21 and 21, I doubt they did play.
After seeing this post on the message board of volleyballmag.com...
This just in from our roving reporter: Bunge out with a high ankle spain. OH Dan Orna #2 out as well....
...I sent North coach Roger Strausberger an email Thursday morning asking if it is true that Bunge and Orna recently were injured. No response.
A source on Thursday afternoon did confirm that yes, the two seniors were in fact hurt. That's where the information train ran out of coal.
How hurt? How long will they be out? Did they play on Thursday?
UPDATE: Strausberger said in his email response Friday morning that Bunge and Orna did suffer ankle injuries. Orna played on Thursday, but Bunge did not. As for the playoffs for Bunge?
"It's a pretty good sprain and hope to have him back for sectionals," Strausberger wrote.
