Cappetta sparks baseball victory
CHAMPAIGN — Right fielder Pete Cappetta went 2 for 4 with a homer and three RBI, leading Illinois to a 6-1 baseball victory against Western Michigan on Tuesday at Illinois Field.
Five Illini pitchers combined to hold the Broncos to four hits in the nonconference contest.
Swim team adds freestyler. Anne Goering of Fairbanks, Alaska, will join Illinois coach Sue Novitsky’s swimming and diving team next season.
Goering, who will compete in the 50, 100 and 200 freestyles, was the 2009 Alaska high school state champion in the 100 free.
