Ex-Northport star Gilroy runs for first time since injury

Former Northport star and current Florida Gator Shannon Gilroy ran outside on Tuesday for the first time since tearing her left ACL in the girls lacrosse Class A state championship game in June.

“Running went really well today. It felt really good to be running outside again,” said Gilroy, who had been running on a treadmill for the past two weeks.

Newsday’s 2010 Long Island Player of the Year was accompanied by a trainer as she ran three laps around a grass soccer field. She said she received physical therapy afterward and can run each day as long as she feels well.

“I can start running outside everyday now for a little longer as long as I feel okay and up to it,” Gilroy said.
