    NORMAL, Ill. – The UIC women’s gymnastics team defeated Midwest Independent Conference rival Illinois State, 194.050-192.450, inside the Horton Field House Sunday in Normal, Ill. Senior Chantel Turk captured the all-around title with a 39.125.

    “We had a really good day,” co-head coach Peter Jansson said. “There were several outstanding performances, including some very good performances on beam and vault. Alyssa [Cruz] stepped up big on three events today, which was a first for her. Overall, it was a very solid meet.”
