    LARGER PICTURE
    - The Flames have now placed sixth or higher in three consecutive years at the championships, earning fourth place in 2012 and sixth last season.
    - That excellence has been in place at UIC for more than 20 years when the Flames won their first national title in the mid-1990’s. 
    - Since then UIC has placed within the top 10 in at least one category in almost every national competition.
