Star college gymnast suffers horrific leg injuries during the competition

(WBTV) – A senior Turner from Auburn University suffered two dislocated knees and tore multiple ligaments during the NCAA regional regional finals in Baton Rouge this weekend.

The injuries of Samantha Cerio were confirmed by Auburn head coach Jeff Graba on Monday.

"She is the heart and soul of the team," Graba said in an article about Cerio on the Auburn Tigers Women & # 39; s Gymnastics website. "This is what she has put into the team for four years now."

Cerio was recently named the SEC fellow student athlete of the year and earned all SEC awards in 2017 and 2018.

She was on her first pass of her floor routine when she was injured. The meeting stopped while it was being treated and was eventually taken off the floor.

The crowd gave her a standing ovation when she left.

In a post on Instagram, the Auburn gymnast wrote: "Friday night was my last night as a gymnast. After 18 years I hang up my handles and leave the chalk behind."

Cerio also said the season was not the end of what she had planned in the post – "but nothing is going as planned."

It wasn't long before the team at Auburn Gymnastics called out an enchanting cry for Cerio. The hashtag & # 39; Stick it for Sam & # 39; started on social media.

Louisiana State University President F. King Alexander visited Cerio in the hospital this weekend. He tweeted that he & # 39; will no doubt overcome this injury and do great things & # 39 ;.

Cerio is cheerful.

"I really appreciate all the support and prayers I have received!" She said in a tweet on Sunday evening. "I'm fine now and I get a lot of rest!"
