"Tonight's meet was a starting point for our team." Head Coach Matt Chovanec said. "Next week's meet at Saginaw Valley will allow us to continue to progress. We are looking forward to watching this team grow each week."
The next competition day for the Scots will be January 20 as they return to the campus of Saginaw Valley State University for the Doug Hansen Open. They were previously there on December 3rd for the Saginaw Valley State Holiday Classic.
