Developing consistency

CMU volleyball team moves up to No. 20 in nation

Colorado Mesa volleyball coach Dave Fleming was pleased with his team for sweeping Black Hills State and Chadron State last weekend after a sweep of perennial RMAC contender Regis on Thursday.
“We talked about it a lot,” Fleming said. “A sign of a good team is consistency. Nebraska-Kearney was that way when (the Lopers) were in the RMAC. We did a good job except in game three against Chadron. I think we were starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel there, but we found a way to win.”
Fleming said having to fight for the sweep against Chadron may help the Mavericks this weekend.
Colorado Mesa (9-2, 3-0 RMAC) plays three RMAC matches on the road — all against teams that reached the RMAC tournament last year, including RMAC regular season champion Colorado School of Mines.
