The UIC Volleyball team went all the way to the Horizon League Championship game this weekend against the home town team of Cleveland State. It came down to the last few points and we came up just a bit short. But with a young team, solid coaches, and a recruiting class that is out of this world, UIC looks to be positioned as the favorite for the 2013 season. Should be fun to be a part of it and it all happens right in your back yard at the Flames Athletic Center!
On an even more positive note, our men’s basketball team is off to its best start in the last 5 years with a 3-1 record heading into the next wave of games. With so many close games, this team is going to make things very interesting on the court at the Pavilion. Exciting college basketball in Chicago can really help bring a community together and after so many years of struggling, it finally looks like the season where good things will happen around UIC. A big thanks to Nancy Plax for starting the initiative of getting community members out to UIC games to further connect the community. We will be offering specials all season long for our neighbors, so be sure to keep checking the blog.
If you are ever interested in getting involved with UIC Athletics as a spectator, a performer, or looking for some appearances its only a phone call away. My direct line is 312.413.1911 and I am always looking for ways to connect this department with the people that live in the area.
Other than than, this post was more just the good news of UIC finding ways to win their games and where they fit into the community.
Happy thanksgiving to everyone in the C4C community!
