UIS makes history with first women's soccer game
History was made on Tuesday night, September 9, as the UIS Prairie Stars women's soccer team played its first game ever at the university.
The Prairie Stars took on the McKendree Bearcats in a game that resulted in a loss for UIS, but the excitement for the first women's soccer game was much more palpable than disappointment in the outcome.
UIS Chancellor Richard Ringeisen kicked off the event, literally, with the first soccer kick of the game. The Prairie Stars were announced and played a strong game before an enthusiastic crowd.
