Miami Dade College volleyball player, Stephanie Toledo, 20, will miss the remainder of the season after having surgery on her left foot.

Toledo, a middle blocker, started having pain in her foot last season.

“At first, I ignored it,” Toledo said. “But the pain worsened as I kept playing.”

She missed four games during the 2009 season as the pain increased. However, medical tests taken in August revealed a tumor on a nerve in her foot.

Toledo will remain inactive for three months, before she can slowly work her way toward rehabilitation.

“She is a good student athlete and still remains very supportive of her teammates,” said Head Coach Origenes “Kiko “Benoit.

Although she is going to miss the remainder of this season, Toledo remains positive.

“I just want to have a fast recovery, so I can get back on the court,” Toledo said. “I miss playing.”
