Local Doctors Provide Physicals for Student Athletes

The CSC coaching staff of Athletic Director and Men’s Basketball Coach Bill Muse, Women’s Basketball Coach Eddie Kite, Men’s Baseball Coach Perry Keith, and Women’s Softball Coach Rick Carbone, with the help of local doctors and Connors State’s fourth semester nursing students, sent the athletes through the paces, to make sure they were in excellent condition before taking part in their respective sports. Local doctors that donated their time and expertise for the physicals were Dr. Maurice Payne, Dr. Kelly Elrick, Dr. Susan Davis, and Dr. Leslie Schulz.

Four Connors State College nursing students also assisted in the physicals under the direction of instructor Joyce Johnson. The student nurses where Ella Nichols, Rachel Moore, Sarah Russell, and Sue King.

Each athlete was required to fill out a medical evaluation form giving past history of their health and immunizations, current health history, and injuries.

The athletes then underwent a physical examination by the doctors and their status was reported on a National Junior College Athletic Association medical evaluation form which will be forwarded to the NJCAA by CSC officials.
