BILLINGS - There are three letters athletes never want to hear when they go down with injury: A-C-L. Damage to the critical knee ligament typically means the end of your season and possibly your career.
For two Rocky soccer players, Mandi Achten and Janell Cabrera, they not only got the news once, but in fact twice in their young careers.
Both Achten and Cabrera were relentless in their efforts to one day return to the pitch as the duo makes up just half of the 4 freshman from Billings on this year's squad joined on the roster by Chez Keehn and Rachel Hein.
In total there are 7 players from the Magic City on this year's Battlin' Bears which include sophomores Ambri Stein, Josie Kautsky, and Jaelene Zygmond.
