Heteniak struck out 10 and walked three in her third career no-hitter. The sophomore threw her first career no-hitter against Villanova on May 5, 2007 and combined for a no-hitter with Tracie Adix during the NCAA Regional in 2007.
With Heteniak hitting her stride, Sandy Vojik provided the Blue Demons with some power as she smashed a pair of home runs in the contest. Vojik finished the day with a 3-for-4 effort and four RBI. Amber Patton and Jackie Tarulli-Fisher were also productive at the plate as the duo each registered two hits in the win.
Vojik's first home run came in the first inning; a three-run shot that cleared the left centerfield fence. Up to bat for the second time, Vojik went opposite field for her ninth long ball of the season in the third frame.
With a 4-0 lead, Patton and Vojik teamed-up to score DePaul's final run of the ballgame in the fourth inning. With Patton on third and Vojik reached on a single, DePaul head coach Eugene Lenti called for the double steal and with perfect execution the runners stole both bases.
Carly Demarco (3-5) took the loss for the Flames. In two innings of work, Demarco gave-up four runs on five hits. Whitney Orelanna closed out the game for UIC. Orelanna scattered a pair of hits, struck out two and walked two.
The Blue Demons return to BIG EAST Conference play this weekend when they welcome Connecticut and Providence for a pair of league doubleheaders. Saturday, DePaul will celebrate Alumni Day and Sunday, the Blue Demons will recognize the accomplishments of graduating seniors Katie Hanson, Marcy Wilus and Vojik. Saturday's twinbill with UConn is scheduled to begin at noon.
