LMC has a tough schedule ahead of them with the Parchment Tournament this coming weekend, on September 17. They will be facing Hartford, Dowagiac, and Parchment, and they lost against all three last year.

Senior captain, Andriejus Gaska, feels positive about the teams upcoming performance. “I think we have a really good chance of going 3-0, but to win our first game against Hartford we are really going to have to stay focused; other than that, we shouldn’t have much trouble with Dowagiac and Parchment.”
