What's more gratifying: the journey or the destination? After winning the Veale Classic this past weekend by defeating John Carroll University and then Wooster, the men's swimming and diving team resoundingly reaped the fruits of their labor, putting into perspective their arduous journey towards the victory.
The men's and women's cross country teams were in opposite positions entering the NCAA Great Lakes Regional Championships last Saturday. The women were ranked No. 13 in the nation, while the men did not even make the top ten ranking in the region.

The Spartans will host the first game of their third-consecutive playoff berth. Saturday, they will face Trine University, a week after a victory over Washington University that wrapped up a spectacular undefeated season and yet another UAA Championship. Case holds the third seed of their region in their playoff bracket.
While the Spartans' season ended weeks ago, their achievements are still rolling in.
