Mesa picked 2nd and 6th in RMAC
Colorado Mesa’s women’s golf team could challenge for the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference title this year.
The Mavericks are picked to finish second in the RMAC behind CSU-Pueblo with four returning scorers. The ThunderWolves received eight first-place votes and had 13 more points in the poll than Mesa.
The CMU men are predicted to drop from fourth to sixth without sophomore Colin Prater, a Colorado Springs native who transferred to RMAC rival University of Colorado-Colorado Springs. Prater is not on the RMAC preseason team because he has to sit out this season. Prater received the NCAA Division II Phil Mickelson Outstanding Freshman Award last season.
Western New Mexico is the favorite to win the RMAC men’s title with seven first-place votes. The University of Colorado-Colorado Springs is picked second.
CSU-Pueblo senior Matt Porter is the RMAC men’s preseason player of the year and CSU-Pueblo junior Leina Kim is the RMAC women’s preseason player of the year.
