Surgery ends season for OSU's Ah-Hoy

Oregon State freshman setter Camilla Ah-Hoy underwent surgery yesterday to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in her left knee.

"I was pretty bummed at first, but I'm OK now," she said. "I'm just excited for rehab."

Ah-Hoy, a 2006 Kahuku graduate and two-time Advertiser All-State first-team selection, injured her knee when she landed on a teammate after she went up for a block in a game against Arizona State Oct. 13.

"Half of my foot landed on her foot, and half of my foot was on the ground," Ah-Hoy said.

"I thought it was just a sprain, it wasn't that bad. When I landed and I was on the ground. I was holding the back of my knee because that's where it hurt, not the front.

"The next day, the front of my knee started hurting."

Ah-Hoy said she isn't superstitious, but an assistant coach pointed out to her, "You hurt your knee on Friday the 13th, and you're having your surgery on Halloween."

Ah-Hoy's father, Irwin, traveled to Oregon to be with Camilla.

"He said she's doing fine. It (the surgery) took about an hour and a half," said Mona Ah-Hoy, Camilla's mother.

"It's just one rotation that she's playing the middle, and that's the rotation she got hurt," said Mona Ah-Hoy, who added that it is Camilla's first major injury.

Camilla averaged 7.32 assists, 0.25 kills, 1.77 digs, and 0.30 blocks per game.

Freshman libero Tricia Yoshimura (Hawai'i Baptist '06) averages an OSU-high 2.63 digs per game.
