Former Bear River softball standout Courtney Ceo (inset) suffered a torn ACL on April 13, ending a promising season at Oregon.
Ceo started 36 games at third base. The sophomore was third on the team in batting at the time of her injury. She ended the season with a .378 batting average and 45 hits. Ceo was 2 for 2 against Utah before suffering the injury in a 9-0 Oregon win. She also stole two bases for the second time in four games, giving her 10 for the season.
Oregon coach Mike White told the Eugene Register-Guard the loss of Ceo was "devastating. She is not only a very, very talented player, but she was on the short list for national honors."
Last season for Oregon, Ceo made the All-Pacific-10 Conference Freshman Team when she led her team in runs (41) and hits (64) and batted .362 with 14 stolen bases. Her 57 starts (all as an infielder) were a team high.
At Bear River, she was a two-time first-team All-Metro pick. As a senior in 2009, Ceo batted a team-high .578 with a team-best 59 hits and 35 steals. That followed a junior season when she had team highs in batting (.513), hits (60), runs (41) and steals (19).
