CHICAGO – The 2014 season marks the 20th anniversary of the Flames’ appearance in the 1994 Women’s College World Series, and the UIC softball team is set to host Alumni Day on Saturday, April 5. All alumni will be honored prior to the Flames’ doubleheader against Wright State at noon. Following the games, an anniversary celebration will be held for all alumni, along with their family and friends, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Marriott Medical District Hotel.

"We are really looking forward to this anniversary celebration," head coach Michelle Venturella said. "We are excited to invite all of our alumni back to campus, as well as the 1994 Women's College World Series team. Our alumni are so important to this program, since they represent the history of UIC Softball. They have the stories and memories that help our current student-athletes appreciate the opportunities they have now. It is going to be a great day and night for everyone involved!"

All alumni who RSVP will receive two tickets to both softball games and the anniversary celebration, while additional tickets to the event can be purchased for $20 per person.
