Ringgold's Selby out for year
Ringgold High School senior Alina Selby is out for the remainder of the 2009-10 girls basketball season after she tore ligaments in her right knee during Saturday's game against Belle Vernon.
It's the second consecutive year Selby, a 5-11 forward, suffered a devastating knee injury. As a junior, Selby injured her left knee during volleyball season and missed the entire basketball schedule.
A two-time first-team selection to the Observer-Reporter all-district team as a freshman and sophomore, Selby was averaging 19 points per game through Ringgold's first five games. The Rams were 4-1 at the time of the injury and 4-3 heading into tonight's Section 4-AAAA game against Baldwin.
