Mesa women’s soccer team wins, misses RMAC tourney
Despite picking up a 2-0 win Sunday against Adams State, the Colorado Mesa University women’s soccer team didn’t get the help it needed to qualify for the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference tournament.
The Mavericks (7-11, 6-8 RMAC) finished the season seventh in the conference. The top six teams make the conference tourney.
The Grizzlies (6-6-6, 3-5-6) were limited to three shots on goal. CMU goalkeeper Sarah Schnetzler, who started every game this season, picked up her fifth shutout of the season.
Leilani Wiernicki and Sam Burneo scored the goals for the Mavericks.
Swimming and diving
The CMU men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams each topped Colorado School of Mines in a dual meet Sunday in Golden.
The Mavericks’ Miranda Reetz, Briana Purkapile, Annie Jones, Marissa Bradley and Brianna Bearden each won events for the women’s team.
For the Mesa men, Brock Martin swept both diving events. Kent Olson-Stavrakas won the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 21.42 seconds. Tyler Kaslik won the 200 butterfly with a time of 1:59.7, capping a weekend where he showcased his ability to swim multiple strokes.
Thomas Stutzriem won the 200 breaststroke in 2:12, the fifth fastest time in school history.
■ Saturday in Alamosa, Kaslik won twice for CMU and set two pool records as the Mavericks defeated Adams State and Wayland Baptist in a double-dual meet. Kaslik won the 500 freestyle with a time of 5:27.85. His 21.96 victory in the 50 freestyle is the 12th fastest in school history.
CMU took the top three places in the 200 freestyle, 200 backstroke and 500 freestyle.
Stutzriem set a pool record in the 200 breaststroke with a time of 2:12.82. Justin Hastings won the 100 butterfly with a time of 52.17 and recorded the eighth fastest time in school history.
For the Mesa women, Reetz won the 100 backstroke, 200 backstroke and 200 individual medley and picked up pool records in each event. The individual effort was enough to top Wayland Baptist, but the Mavericks fell to Adams State.
Eryn Leonard won the 100 butterfly with a time of 1:01.57.
