The University of Tennessee Women's Athletic Department announced today that after careful consideration and consultation with medical experts, Lady Vol redshirt sophomore basketball student-athlete Amber Gray will not be cleared by the department's medical staff to resume team-related athletic activities with respect to intercollegiate competition at UT.
"Amber is a courageous young woman, and we hope she will remain at UT as a student," women's athletic director Joan Cronan said. "If she decides she would like to pursue a playing opportunity at another university, we will support her decision to do so. We only want what is best for Amber."
This is a "sad" blow to my lady vols nation. I was really hoping that Amber would be able to make a full recovery, in respect to playing the sport she loves again. Yet, at this point I'm just happy for her second chance at life. God Bless you Amber. And I hope she continues her education at UT.
