Illini to Host Annual Mid-Season Celebration
Jan. 8, 2014
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - With the start of the spring season a month away, the Fighting Illini women's golf team will once again be hosting its mid-season celebration. The banquet is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 9, at 1 p.m., at Biaggi's Ristorante located at 2235 S. Neil Street in Champaign. The mid-season celebration provides a great opportunity for fans to interact with the coaches and golfers that are inserting momentum into the women's program.
The Orange and Blue finished in the top-three in four of its five fall tournaments, including a five-stroke victory at the Diane Thomason Invitational, where freshman Stephanie Miller took home the individual title as well. Furthermore, the Illini climbed 84 spots in the Golfstat rankings due to their performance over the season, ending the year ranked 38th in the country, their highest end of fall ranking in over a decade.
Thus, be sure to come out and mingle with this current crop of Illini as we get ready for an exciting spring season ahead. During the banquet the coaches will recognize the team's accomplishments and highlights of the fall season while honoring all alumni and supporters in attendance.
The event is open to all members of the public, simply RSVP by Jan. 25 to Jen Cochrane at firstname.lastname@example.org or 217-333-8607. The cost of the luncheon is priced at $30.
