Skating first in a group of 13 teams, the UD team skated a dynamic program to a compilation of pieces from the musical group Queen.

"That was the most energetic performance we have had in my four years on the team," Megan McGuiggan said. "Our goal was to put everything out there and have no regrets. We were devastated to not compete at Easterns, but what that taught us is that competing is a privilege and a blessing; it's something that should not be taken for granted. We wanted to put out such an energetic performance that it made up for our missed performance at Easterns."

UD competed against Miami University (Ohio), the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Western Michigan University, Adrian College, the University of Massachusetts and the University of New Hampshire, to name a few.
