HOUSTON – Heading into 2019, Leilani Noguera had fortunately never suffered a major injury or had to undergo a surgery in her playing career.

That all changed on January 6.

Noguera, a sophomore at Clear Lake High Shool, was practicing with her boys YMCA team and were scrimmaging three on three. While defending on the three-point line, Noguera shifted to her left to follow the guy with the ball. Her leg gave out when she heard three loud pops.

The injury happened on a Friday and the MRI on the following Monday showed the worst – three tears in her meniscus and a completely torn ACL.

On February 8, Noguera underwent surgery to repair her meniscus and ACL.

The next step of the process after surgery was the long road of recovery back. This journey is usually done privately, and the gritty portion of the rehab is never seen.

But Noguera chose to show her process through video on her personal Twitter account.

The first video, posted on February 15, showed Noguera working with a physical therapist just barely moving her left leg, while she balanced on a training table. The next came seven days later, Noguera this time was pedaling on a stationary bicycle for the first time.
