The Rocks travel to Novi Thursday for which is a non-division match this season. It’s always good to schedule quality opponents and Novi is just that…a state ranked team that has won the state tournament twice in the last 5 years. This will give the boys a tune up for Tuesday when they travel to Northville for our only crossover match in the newly realigned KLAA conference.
