CMU student government plans
to charter a bus to San Antonio

Colorado Mesa University’s student government has made plans to pay for a student charter bus to San Antonio to attend the NCAA Division II women’s basketball Elite Eight, which falls during the university’s spring break.

The students are responsible for paying for their own lodging, food and game tickets, but transportation to and from San Antonio will be free. The Mavericks play at 1:30 p.m. on March 26 against Dowling (N.Y.) University.

Students interested in taking the bus must email ASG President Telbe Storbeck at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Because of liability issues, only Colorado Mesa students are allowed on the bus. University officials are looking into the possibility of a separate bus for fans from the community wanting to attend the games and will release information once a decision is made.


Colorado Mesa won two of three games against Colorado School of Mines last weekend and swept the RMAC weekly honors.

Joey Danner, who pitched six innings in a victory on Saturday, allowing five hits, one walk and striking out nine, was selected the pitcher of the week. Danner is a junior right-hander from Scottsdale, Ariz., and improved his record to 4-0.

Garrett Carpenter hit .533 in the series (8 for 15), with two hits in each game, and was selected the player of the week. Carpenter, a junior pitcher/outfielder, scored seven runs, drove in seven runs and hit two doubles and a triple.

The Mavericks (15-5, 9-1 RMAC) play New Mexico Highlands in a four-game series Friday through Sunday at Suplizio Field.
