Bryan Health and Lincoln Orthopaedic Center are partnering with Litzenberg Memorial County Hospital in Central City to provide athletic training services for Central City High School and Nebraska Christian High School.
The partnership will expand Litzenberg Memorial’s Lone Tree Sports Medicine program, under the direction of Dr. Nathan Krug.
A certified athletic trainer will be assigned to cover daily practices and attend all varsity matches to evaluate, treat, rehabilitate and provide first aid to athletes. The individual will also provide relevant education and literature on athletic injuries to student-athletes, parents and coaches and provide full concussion testing services to both high school and junior high school players.
Sara Shively will be the trainer serving Central City schools. Shively is a native of Central City and a graduate of Central City High School. She graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha with a bachelor’s degree in athletic training. She is licensed in the state of Nebraska as a trainer and holds her national certification as well.
Prior to coming to Bryan Health, she worked in Norfolk as an athletic trainer at Norfolk High School through Faith Regional Health Center. In addition to her work with Central City high schools, she will cover other local athletic events and work at the local hospital.
