Newport Harbor High softball standout Bella Secaira has been cleared to play, three months after injuries suffered from a 30-foot fall, her mother, Tiffany Etchegoyen said Friday.
She received clearance to play from her doctor Thursday, Etchegoyen said.
Secaira, a catcher who was named Daily Pilot Player of the Year in softball last spring as a sophomore, was in critical condition with a collapsed lung and a mild concussion in June.
She fell from an apartment building.
"She was a kid being a kid," Etchegoyen explained at the time.
Secaira led the Sailors (13-16) in batting with a .450 average.
She also competes in club softball for the Firecrackers.
