About this Article

Life is full of twists and turns. Some create opportunity, some create torn ACLs. South Elgin senior Kara Rodriguez can tell you all about both. A multitalented and multisport athlete, Rodriguez spent the better part of her teen years to this point dreaming of playing softball in college on scholarship. But life takes the aforementioned twists and turns sometimes without asking us if we're ready for them, and that's what happened to Rodriguez on Sept. 28, 2011 in the South Elgin gym.
