On Thursday afternoon, Women’s Head Basketball Coach Lynn Plett underwent an emergency appendectomy procedure.
According to Western Athletic Director Dave Williams, Plett had been suffering discomfort for more than a week and decided to go to the emergency room yesterday.
The surgery was successful and Plett is recovering at Heartland Regional Medical Center and is currently experiencing less discomfort than he was.
Plett will miss tomorrow night’s game at Pittsburg State and currently there is not a specific timeline for when Plett is expected to be back on the sidelines for the Griffons. Plett could not be reached for comment.
