Olivia Dunne can now add a championship to her already storied NCAA career.

The gymnastics star and her Louisiana State University squad helped bring home the first NCAA women’s gymnastics championship in school history on Saturday with a near perfect performance in front of more than 7,600 fans in Fort Worth, Texas.

“Best day ever!” Dunne, 21, wrote on her Instagram Stories after the team’s win on Saturday.

The gymnast and social media star has shared numerous photos and videos of herself holding the team’s NCAA trophy since the team’s historic win Saturday. “Forever LSU,” she wrote in another Instagram post, alongside a purple heart and the hashtag “#champions.”

LSU scored a 198.2250 at the finals on Saturday, capping off the championship year, buoyed by senior Sierra Ballard, who scored a career-high 9.95 on rotations, and by Aleah Finnegan, who put a bow on the Tigers’ title with another 9.95 performance of her own, according to ESPN.

“NATIONAL CHAMPS!! YESSSSS!!!!! Congrats girliessssss!!!” former LSU women’s basketball star Angel Reese, who once appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated alongside Dunne, tweeted after the team’s win.

Dunne, who missed much of last season with arm injuries, competed on and off for LSU this season, including helping the team win its SEC Conference championship earlier in the year with a 9.8 score on bars. Twice throughout the season, Dunne matched her career-high score of 9.9, last notching the score in a floor routine that helped LSU march past the Regional Second Round of the NCAA postseason.

Dunne, who has become one of the most well-known college athletes with eight million followers on TikTok and more than five million on Instagram, did not compete in the team’s championship competition on Saturday, however.

The LSU star has the opportunity to return to the school for a fifth season due to the NCAA’s COVID rule that allows athletes to make up for the lost year in 2020. However, Dunne has not indicated whether her college career is over or whether she’ll come back for one final season.

“I have not decided,” Dunne said in March, according to “I could come back for a fifth year. But I’m just focused on this year.”
