After winning Best Choreography for its set and placing third in the Great Lakes Region quarterfinal round in Centerville, Ohio, on Feb. 9, Buck That! advanced to the International Championship of Collegiate A Capella semifinal round, where the group had a similar finish.

Buck That! won Best Choreography for its song “Good Intent” and placed third at semifinals on March 23 in Ann Arbor, Mich., with 316 points, behind first place University of Michigan and second place Michigan State University with 423 and 339 points respectively.
