ORLANDO, Fla. (AP — A high school lacrosse player who suffered a “traumatic brain injury” is suing Orange County, the Florida High School Athletic Association and the player who hit her in the head with a stick during a game.
The Orlando Sentinel reports Kendalle Holley still suffers from headaches from the injury suffered on Feb. 25, 2015.
Attorney Karen Wasson says Holley continued playing for 15 minutes after the blow. The lawsuit late last month.
Holley played for East River High School, which was playing Timber Creek High when the injury happened.
The family is seeking in excess of $15,000.
Wasson says video taken at the game shows Holley bent over for several seconds after the hit.
A spokeswoman says Orange County doesn’t have jurisdiction over school events. The FHSAA declined comment.
