Michaela Witte has been taking her sophomore season in stride with the Camosun Chargers in Victoria, something she’s happy to be doing after missing the majority of her first season.
Last year, Witte, a former Kwalikum Secondary Kondor, suffered a season-ending knee injury that put her freshman season and the game of basketball on the shelf for the better part of a year.
After a lengthy rehabilitation process, Witte finally got back to feeling herself on the court once again and she’s been making progress with the Chargers.
“It’s been a lot of fun so far this year,” Witte said. “I’ve been getting some good playing time, which always feels nice. It’s great to be out there on the floor with my teammates and battling it out with them against other teams.”
Mostly playing point guard throughout high school, Witte has seen her time running the floor at the number one spot turned into time spent at the shooting guard position.
It’s not something she’s opposed to, as she loves to shoot three-pointers from beyond the arc. It’s just taking some getting used to.
“It’s different for sure,” Witte said. “It’s taking me a little bit of time to figure out playing a different position than I’m used to but I love it. I’m still working on getting my skill back but I’m having fun, which is the most important part.”
