The social media star, who has 7.7 million TikTok followers, posted a lighthearted video to the platform that offered a peek into her squad’s ‘cardio day.’
The clip starts with Tigers head coach Jay Clark lip-syncing the audio, ‘Never back down, never what?’
A seemingly exhausted Dunne and her teammates then mouth the words, ‘Never give up,’ before the sequence repeats.
Dunne captioned the TikTok – which has nearly 1 million views at the time of writing – ‘Tigers never back down on cardio day.’

Ex-LSU pitcher Paul Skenes (left) is dating Dunne, the No. 1 overall MLB draft pick confirmed
Skenes, the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s MLB draft, was also an LSU athlete and recently confirmed the pair’s romance.
Speaking to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette , he opened up on their relationship and said: ‘It’s nice, for sure. It can be a pain in the butt sometimes, to be honest, in terms of actually going somewhere.
‘If one of us went out in Baton Rouge by ourselves, there’s probably gonna be someone there asking for something — picture, autograph, whatever.
‘It’s nice to be able to have that conversation. She does get it. I do wish she could come to a baseball game and just enjoy it. It does irk me.
‘I don’t have any control over it. She really doesn’t either. I’m sure it’ll get better as I go up levels, but that’s something I want for her.’
Dunne was spotted watching Skenes make his debut for the Single-A Bradenton Marauders last week at LECOM Park.
