With Colorado Mesa baseball's loss in the World Series last week, the 2016-17 CMU sports season has officially come to a close.
CMU finished second in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference All-Sports Competition Cup. The RMAC Cup is awarded to the school that finishes with the most points, based upon their team's finishes in the RMAC season standings. This past season, the Mavericks won six regular season championships: baseball, softball, men's lacrosse, men's soccer, football, and men's tennis. Mesa won five RMAC Tournament titles: baseball, softball, men's lacrosse, men's soccer, and men's swimming and diving.
In addition, thirteen Mavericks earned RMAC player of the year, and five CMU coaches won coach of the year. Four Mav athletes also earned academic athlete of the year in his or her sport.
Colorado Mines wins the RMAC All-Sports Competition Cup. The Mavs were 30.5 points behind at 865. The Thunderwolves of CSU-Pueblo finished third with 852 points. This is CMU's second consecutive second place finish. The Mavs won the cup in 2014 and 2015.
The CMU fall sports season begins in just over two months when the Maverick football team and women's soccer team take the field on August 31st.
