They Said It
"With the weather situation the past two weeks as well as the meet being moved from Friday to Saturday, I thought we did a great job of controlling what we could and getting after it in our events. Things are starting to come together for people and they're beginning to see it. We've got two more weeks until the MIAA Field Day, so we'll continue to work in practice on having our best performances of the indoor season at that meet. We can't wait!" - Head Coach Matt Chovanec
The Scots head to the GVSU Tune-Up meet on February 15. The starting time for the meet is to be announced.
