A year ago, Calvin captured its second straight MIAA title and reached the NCAA III Tournament for the fourth consecutive season. The Knights finished the 2007 season with an overall record of 30-5, marking their third straight 30-win campaign.
In addition to Hope, Calvin is scheduled to face fourth-ranked Wittenberg and 11th-ranked Ohio Northern during the year. Calvin will open its season next Friday at the Ohio Northern Polar Bear Classic.
