UGA cheerleader doing better after fall!

University of Georgia cheerleader Christine Conley may be released from the hospital as early as this afternoon following a fall during the Lady Bulldogs opening round NCAA Tournament game Sunday, said her mother.
"She is doing much better," Cheryl Conley said. "She will be OK and will recover."

Georgia cheerleader Christine Conley lies on the court after falling during a routine in the second half of the first round NCAA women's basketball tournament game between Georgia and Iowa in Norfolk, Va.
Conley was admitted to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital Sunday afternoon after hitting the back of her head on the hardwood court during a stunt being performed at the 14:18 mark of the second half. She was admitted to the Norfolk, Va., hospital for observation and to undergo tests.
Conley, a senior from Millen, lay on the floor for several minutes while medical personnel attended to her. Her head and neck were immobilized and then she was taken by stretcher off the floor. As she left the floor, Conley was able to lift her arm and wave to the crowd.
Her parents, Charles and Cheryl, made the drive from Millen Sunday night.
"We just had to rely on our faith during it," Cheryl said. "And she was doing OK when we saw her.
"She really wants to thank everybody for their calls and their prayers and their support," Cheryl said.
