Men’s Team heads to DIII NATIONALS

The mens’s team attended their first ever DIII National Championships after an amazing season and sweeping the competition at Metro East Regionals. In Texas at the Championships, the #13 Hot Saucers ran with #8 Michigan Tech and one of the best handlers in the DIII division, losing 9-11 after being tied at 9, lost a nail-biter 10-12 to eventual champion #1 Middlebury, and had a dramatic come-from-behind-DGP-win over #12 Franciscan 13-12, after trailing 9-12. The team used its emotional high to run with #9 Luther in the pre-quarters to keep the score at 3-3, but the stifling Texas heat and the 4th consecutive game tired out the Saucers, as they lost 5-14.  Sunday included a 7-14 loss to #15 Berry, where the Hot Saucers couldn’t find their legs, and a 11-13 loss to Michigan Tech, where the Saucer seniors played the last 4 points, almost coming back from a 8-12 deficit and showing their love for the team. The Hot Saucers finished an impressive 5th place at Nationals in Spirit Score rankings, concluding their most successful season ever with heart, spirit, and determination, eager to return to Nationals again next year.
