From Head Coach Bruce Zimmerman

"Although the team got handled by a very strong Northern Michigan team, it was still a good meet for the Cardinals. Of the three meets contested so far this season, this was the best team showing so far with several improved performances turned in by a large number of team members. The fall semester of competition is rapidly coming to a close with just two big meets left on the fall calendar. We are expecting some improved performances in the meet against Valparaiso in two weeks and some really fast swimming and sharp diving at the Wabash Invitational just before the Thanksgiving break."  

Up Next...

Saginaw Valley returns to the pool on Saturday, November 16, when the team hits the road and competes at Valparaiso. The first event for that matchup is set for 2:00 p.m.
