CMU dominates regional to reach NCAA World Series

Kyle Leahy said it was time for the Colorado Mesa pitching staff to see what it could do at the regional level.
Now it’s time for the Mavs to see what they can do at the national level.
Led by a pitching staff that allowed only five runs in the South Central Regional tournament, Colorado Mesa swept through the field, capping it off with an 8-1 victory Monday over the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith to clinch a spot in the NCAA Division II World Series.
“Our guys were dominant all week,” CMU coach Chris Hanks said.
The Mavericks (48-10) play Quincy University (Illinois) at 5 p.m. (MDT) on Sunday in the first round of the World Series in Grand Prairie, Texas.
