Big thanks to Mahomet-Seymour High School for helping us surprise our 2021-22 Female Athlete of the Year, CAYLA KOERNER, on Wednesday.

During a crowded lunch hour that included Cayla’s parents and coaches, she was presented a framed News-Gazette front page and a plaque from the UI ROTC, posed for dozens of pictures and hammed it up with teammates by yelling “ Go Bulldogs!” for our cameras. It was a wonderful sight, made possible by many helping hands.
