When Stamford standout Tylee Jo Bevel tore her ACL in June, she thought her high school basketball career was over.
Nursing an injury that often takes a full year of recovery time, Bevel had surgery in July expecting to be spectator for her final high school campaign. Fate, though, would have very different plans.
Not only has Bevel been able to get back on the court, she’s been an integral part of a spectacular run to the Lady Bulldogs’ first state tournament appearance. And as her team prepares for Friday’s Class 2A state semifinal matchup with Martin’s Mill, the 6-foot forward is beyond thankful to have gotten the opportunity to write a suitable ending for her decorated Stamford career.
