Sunday will also mark a special recognition for former UE softball/women’s soccer player Beth Csukas, who is also an Evansville firefighter. In January of 2016, she was severely injured in a car accident and has made unbelievable progress in her recovery. On Sunday, March 26 at 11:45 a.m., Csukas will be presented with the MVC Most Courageous Award prior to the Aces softball game versus Bradley. With Csukas being a firefighter, UE Athletics has designated Sunday’s contest as “First Responder Day” and all first responders, current and former, full-time and volunteer, will be admitted to the game free. We have also worked it out with the Evansville Fire Department to have at least two trucks on hand at the game.
