Allison, Brian, Cameron, Niveditha and Tessie went with Coach Abbie to Austin for the 11th annual Hell Froze Over (HFO) swing hosted by the University of Texas at Austin and Bradley University. There were 40 schools in attendance and nearly 100 competitors in each event. After two preliminary rounds, 12 competitors advance to semi-finals. Six advance from semis to finals.
