2014 Fall Schedule

UIC head softball coach Michelle Venturella revealed the Flames' fall schedule on Tuesday. UIC will compete in four tournaments, three of which are set to be held at Flames Field, beginning Sept. 13.

"The fall is such an exciting time to get our student-athletes back on campus, as well as welcome our newcomers to UIC," Venturella said. "We have a great group that is excited to get going and have the chance to compete against great competition. We are looking forward to seeing our fans back in the stands at Flames Field starting first with our scrimmage and alumni game on Saturday, Sept. 6, followed by the start of our fall games on Sept. 13."

The 2014-15 Flames will open its fall campaign on Sept. 6 with an intersquad scrimmage at 1 p.m. CT followed by the annual alumni game, which gets underway with a short program at 3 p.m.

UIC will kick off competition on Sept. 13 at Flames Field with a doubleheader against Loyola beginning at noon. The Flames remain at home the following Saturday (Sept. 20) to take on Northern Illinois at noon and Kirkwood Community College at 2 p.m., with NIU and Kirkwood CC facing each other at 4 p.m.

In their lone tournament away from home, UIC will travel to South Bend, Ind., to face Notre Dame at noon and Eastern Michigan at 2:15 p.m. on Sept. 28 at Melissa Cook Stadium.

The schedule concludes on Oct. 4, when the Flames return to Flames Field to challenge Loyola for the third time at noon and Indiana State at 2 p.m., with the Ramblers and Sycamores squaring off at 4 p.m.
