Two-sport star suffers freak season-ending injury during team photo Published: January 2, 2014

A two-sport star in Iowa had her prep girls basketball season cut short by a horrific accident while participating in team photos in the locker room prior to a game, according to Yahoo Sports.

Sheffield (Iowa) West Fork High senior standout Lindsey Peterson needed 100 stitches and three plates in her face to help heal the fractures she suffered when slipping and falling onto the corner of a bench upon which she was posing for pictures with her teammates, according to The Sheffield Press.

“It was the worst thing I’ve seen,” West Fork coach Rodney Humber told the paper, detailing his star's harrowing night at the Mayo Clinic. “It went straight through her gum, affected a few of her teeth and she had a big gash on the right side of her face.”
