EVANSVILLE,Ind. (WEHT) – Castle senior, Kaitlyn Ewald, signed her national letter of intent with the University of Illinois women’s gymnastic team.

That’s unique for Tri-State high school sports. The Knights student is a five time Indiana state champion.

She says she is excited to be heading to Champaign.

“I’ve dreamed of doing college gymnastics, so I’m definitely extremely excited to continue this next journey. But it’s also sad at the same time because I’m leaving behind so many great teammates and family members. I’ve followed this team for as long as I was old enough to understand college gymnastics, I love the team’s atmosphere, and the coaches are incredible.”
