There was a scary moment late in today’s game when a UK cheerleader fell and had to be carried off the field in a stretcher. UK just released a statement saying that the cheerleader, Brooke Gibbs, has been released from the hospital:
Brooke Gibbs, a sophomore on the UK Cheer team, has been treated and released from UK Chandler Hospital following a fall during the 4th quarter of Kentucky Football’s victory over UT Martin. Brooke, her family and the cheer program are appreciative of the efforts and expertise of the athletic trainers, team doctors and paramedics who cared for her at the stadium, as well as the doctors, nurses and staff at the hospital. She has heard of the outpouring of thoughts, prayers and concerns from the Big Blue Nation and can’t wait to get back on the field with her teammates and the football team soon.
We wish Brooke a speedy recovery.
