Track & Field
Colorado Mesa men and women got off to a slow start in the RMAC Indoor Championships in Chadron, Neb.
The Mavericks failed to place a single athlete in the nine finals (four men, five women) on the first day of the meet.
The men and women didn’t qualify a runner for the finals of the 55-meter high hurdles, 55 dash, 200 dash or 400 dash.
The meet continues today with the finals in the mile, hurdles, 400, 55, 800, 200, 3,000 and the 1,600 relay. The men’s heptathlon and shot put and women’s triple jump and pole vault finals take place today.
Colorado Mesa added another goalkeeper to the mix for next season, signing Nick Mabry. The ThunderRidge High School senior was a three-year varsity starter, team captain and all-conference pick. He played for the Real Colorado club team.
“Nick is a quality goalkeeper,” CMU coach Josh Pittman said in a release. “He has a good frame and great fundamentals. He is going to improve tremendously over the next few years and he is somebody that we are looking at to lead our program in the future.”
Mesa had four goalkeepers in the program last year, including two freshmen.
