Hello Illini Fans!

We hope all of you are having a wonderful holiday season and new year!  The team is currently in the midst of the off-season, and we are working hard in preparation for the spring season.

Although the weather has grown cooler, the preparation for the spring season is in full swing (no pun intended).  The team is spending a lot of time in the weight room increasing our strength for the spring tournaments.  Our strength coach gave us a program to do over winter break so we can come back to school and pick up where we left off.  It is at this time of year that we realize what an asset Demirjian, our indoor facility, is to the team.  Demirjian has given us a huge advantage in these Midwestern winters, and the team is very grateful to have the ability to practice there.
