The resurgent Academy at the Lakes girls basketball program was dealt a major blow when it learned that junior post player Vanessa Vincent partially tore her meniscus in the Wildcats' season opener against Brooks-DeBartolo.

The Wildcats were leading Brooks-DeBartolo when Vincent was injured but ended up losing by 12, their lone loss of the season.

Wildcats coach Karim Nohra said Vincent will have surgery to repair the tear Monday and will likely miss the rest of the season. Vincent had averaged a double double (points, rebounds) in the Wildcats' two preseason games. Without her, the Wildcats are down to only seven players on their roster.

In his first year at Academy at the Lakes, Nohra has guided the Wildcats to an early 3-1 record. Academy at the Lakes finished the 2009-10 season without a win.
