A 19-year-old woman has testified at the State House in favor of a bill that would require all high school student-athletes have a baseline test before they are allowed to compete.

The test would help doctors diagnose the severity of a concussion.  

Molly Caron suffered a debilitating concussion in her junior year while playing soccer for Bridgewater-Raynham High School.

Caron says her grades dropped and it took her about nine-months to recover. 

She’s now a freshman soccer player at Emerson College where she took a baseline concussion test. 

The bill calling for baseline testing was filed by State Senator Marc Pacheco of Taunton.
