Redbird Softball Honors Its Seniors; Fan Appreciation Day

April 23, 2013

NORMAL, Ill. - With every regular-season nearing its end, the Illinois State Athletics Department will honor some of its graduating seniors as the Redbird softball team hosts Northern Iowa on Sunday, April 28, staring at 12 p.m. at Marian Kneer Softball Stadium.

Senior Day will also serve as Fan Appreciation Day, where all fans in attendance will receive a raffle ticket upon admittance to the stadium, entering them into a drawing to win prizes to thank them for their dedication and support of Redbird softball. The randomly selected drawing will take place throughout the game for the prizes donated by the following ISU Athletics business partners: Avanti’s, Meijer, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Starcrest Cleaners, Marriott Hotel and Conference Center, Holiday Inn Express, B & B Awards and Recognition, and the ISU Bone Student Center.

Senior recognitions will occur following the conclusion of the game on the field, honoring Jhavon Hamilton, Elizabeth Kay, Lauren Kellar and Shelby Music.

Admission is free for the entire regular season at Marian Kneer Softball Stadium, so fans are encouraged to come and help Redbird softball set a new attendance record.
