"This will be a terrific opportunity for us," said Coach Pete Fewing. "On the competitive side, it will be very good and then the cultural enlightenment will be fantastic. We're excited about the chance to go and it's pretty amazing that we're going to be able to do it."
Fewing and his squad will head to Spain on Saturday, March 18, with four quality opponents on the schedule. On March 20, SU will take on the Cornella 1st team.
