Softball

UChicago (22-11 record) wraps up its regular season schedule this week with a quartet of games. A neutral site doubleheader versus Elmhurst College (18-18) on Wednesday will be played at the Chicago Bandits Stadium in Rosemont, Ill. The Maroons then host Senior Day on Friday versus Lawrence University (14-20).

The Maroons have not played since April 23, as four games were postponed last week due to rain. UChicago had four players selected to the All-University Athletic Association (UAA) teams on Tuesday – sophomore outfielder Maeve Garvey (First Team), senior utility player Anna Woolery (Second Team), junior pitcher Molly Moran (Second Team) and freshman pitcher Megan Stoppelman (Second Team). The four selections marked the most All-UAA Maroons since 1997 (seven selections).
