Brea Olinda junior center Justine Hartman will sit out this basketball season after tearing her ACL earlier this month, Coach Jeff Sink said. The loss leaves the defending state champions, ranked sixth in the country by ESPN, with a hole in the middle of the floor.
“It’s a huge loss for us, but we’ll be allright,” Sink said.
Hartman played on the USA Basketball U16 team this summer, which won a gold medal. She is ranked seventh on ESPN’s Super 60 list for the class of 2011.
