North quarterback has successful surgery

Columbus North junior quarterback Trenton Kelley had surgery Tuesday to remove his spleen.

“It went very well,” said Trenton’s father, Dennis Kelley. “The surgeon was very happy with everything that happened today and projects that he will have a good recovery.”

Trenton Kelley was injured on the opening drive of Friday’s sectional football loss at Center Grove and was taken to an Indianapolis hospital. Doctors at Methodist hospital did a two-hour surgery early Saturday morning to stop bleeding in the arteries leading to the spleen.

Tuesday’s surgery lasted about an hour-and-a-half to two hours,Dennis said.

Dennis Kelley said Trenton likely will remain in the hospital through Friday, but likely will not be able to return to school for a couple of weeks.
