Lexington, VA – In April 2015, Virginia Military Institute’s boxing team traveled west to face the University of Michigan’s Wolverines in the United States Intercollegiate Boxing Association’s (USIBA) national tournament. VMI’s student population is roughly 1,700 while some 43,000 students make Ann Arbor home.

What ensued was an upset that will long echo along the grounds of the historic campus tucked in the state’s Shenandoah Valley.
