LSU gymnastics junior McKenna Kelley, a two-time All-American and the reigning Southeastern Conference Floor Exercise Champion will miss the 2018 season after rupturing her Achilles tendon, head coach D-D Breaux announced Monday.
“McKenna was at the top of her gymnastics and has really worked hard to be the anchor and make the vault lineup,” Breaux said. “In a year when we are replacing a great senior class she will be missed. She is the spirit and emotional leader of our team. It is now a time for us to develop addition depth and see who will step up and carry the LSU flag.”
