Mullane said most of all, the team is excited to be playing so close to home.
“With Coach and his eye, he’s not allowed to fly,’’ said Mullane. “If we got put in Toledo or Grand Rapids, that’s a long drive. For us, it’s comforting that our friends and family will be able to support us and the super fans will be there for us. Everyone is excited we’re staying east.’’
