UE’s Lelic suffers gruesome ankle injury



University of the East middle blocker, Samuel Lelic, sustained an unfortunate, potentially season-ending injury in their first match of the UAAP Season 78 Men’s Volleyball tournament.

During the second set of their straight-sets loss to the the De La Salle University Green Spikers, Lelic attempted to block a Arjay Onia’s attack. Lelic went up awkwardly, leaning towards his left and landed with all his weight on his left ankle.

His ankle buckled and snapped into a bent position. The sophomore had to be carried out on a stretcher.

Lelic is currently being treated at the UE Ramon Magsaysay Medical Center. There are currently no updates on his condition as of press time.

Miguel Luis Flores fell face first into sports writing in high sch9l and has never gotten up. He reluctantly stumbled into the volleyball beat when he started with Tiebreaker Times three years ago. Now, he has waded through everything volleyball - from its icky politics to the post-modern art that is Jia Morado's setting.
