Coach Lele Forood says: "Our squad's other senior, Kara had a difficult junior year having separated her shoulder during a match in Seattle last January. Surgery followed and after months of rehab and hard work she showcased her tricky lefty game and powerful forehand again this fall. This future doctor will have fun stringing wins together this year in her fourth and final season."
