UI signs Junior Elite gymnast

Kara Kapernekas of Immaculate Heart of Mary High School signed a national letter of intent with the Illinois women's gymnastics team Tuesday.

"Kara will bring more national meet experience to Illinois than any incoming student-athlete I've ever coached in my seven years here," UI interim head coach Bob Starkell said.
