The team then traveled to Western Michigan University for their first in-person tournament. They were defeated in the finals against Alma College and took 2nd place for the division.
The team is excited about moving forward as a new team for ACC and moving to another league next year that is hosted by the NJCAA which is a national league competition. Their goal is to find a dedicated space and equipment to be able to practice and host future events here at ACC.
