Brownfield News
Say the word "Doc" anywhere else and you might picture a man in a white coat with a stethoscope draped over his shoulder.

Philly.com
A 2007 study by Dick et al in the Journal of Athletic Training looked at injury rates for the women's lacrosse using the NCAA injury surveillance system from 1988-2004. The results show the game injury rate was twice the rate for practice (7.15 versus 3.30 injuries per 1000 athlete-exposures [A-Es]). Preseason practice injury rates were almost twice as high as regular-season practice rates. More than 60 percent of all game and practice injuries were to the lower extremity.
