"I would say this is the most elite competition we will face outside of the MPSF and NCAA Championships," head coach Fred Harvey said. "On both sides we have a tremendous team this year and I feel strongly that if you don't compete against the best, it is tough to measure yourself and see where you're at. We're going to have our hands full in all areas we expect to be successful in."
