The school year is winding down but the spring sport seasons will continue with many trophies still up for grabs.


Spring Sports Recap

As the weather warms up in the Grand Valley, so have the athletic programs at Colorado Mesa University.

The softball team has been nearly unstoppable this season. The Mavericks dropped the first conference game of the season, but haven’t looked back winning the next 33 games to claim the RMAC regular season title with one more week remaining in conference play. CMU will host the RMAC Tournament April 28-30. The Mavs made their first appearance in the national poll appearing at No. 23 on April 13th.

The baseball team has dominated on the diamond as well. The Mavericks are 34-7 overall this season and have the best record in the league at 24-4. CMU has been ranked in the top-10 nationally all year, including a high of No. 2. Freshman JR McDermott struck out a school- and RMAC-record 19 batters in a 3-2 win over MSU Denver.

The women’s tennis team earned another RMAC title with a perfect 4-0 record in league play. The conference title was the first for the Mavericks since 2014. The men’s team finished second in the league with a 3-1 mark, but pulled off the biggest upset in program history defeating No. 23 BYU-Hawaii 5-4.

The women’s golf team used home course advantage to win the Maverick Spring Invite over MSU Denver and Cal State Monterey Bay. Senior Sara Swaney finished third, one stroke behind the leaders, in the individual competition.

The beach volleyball teams first season was a difficult one as the program faced many Div. I foes. The Mavericks earned a 3-2 win over New Mexico State for its first win in school history. 

The outdoor track and field teams have set five men’s school records and the women have set three. CMU has given the Grand Valley the opportunity to see the team compete by hosting three meets.

The men’s lacrosse team has a 7-4 overall record and is still in the hunt for the RMAC title with a 4-1 record. The women’s lacrosse team has a 9-3 record and a 4-2 mark in RMAC play, including the first win over Fort Lewis in program history.

The school year is winding down but the spring sport seasons will continue with many trophies still up for grabs.
