Angie Charchalis, a 2008 Moffat County High School graduate and redshirt junior at Colorado School of Mines, puts up a shot this season for the Orediggers. Charchalis suffered a knee injury last season, but rebounded this year to earn All-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference first-team honors.

Nothing about Angie Charchalis’ fast-break opportunity during a December 2010 game was out of the ordinary. It was the sixth game of the 2010-11 season for the Colorado School of Mines women’s basketball team, and Charchalis had a two-on-one opportunity in a close game against Colorado Christian at home. But when Charchalis, a 2008 Moffat County High School graduate, tried to stop to pass the ball on the break, her feet halted but her body didn’t. She ended up tearing her anterior cruciate ligament and missed the rest of her junior season.
