This year they are looking forward to build off a great 2022-23 season and make a push to the National Tournament once again.
MCC has a jammed packed schedule, starting off November 3 & 4 at the Central Christian College Classic for Christ in McPherson, KS where they will play Sterling College and host team Central Christian College. The Thunder will open home play Friday November 10 against CCC and then will host McPherson College the next day (Saturday, November 11).
