Colorado Mesa’s Erin Perez, 12, collects a kill Sunday during the Mavericks’ 26-24, 21-25, 25-17, 25-19 loss to Arkansas-Fort Smith in the South Central Region championship match.

Mavs fall in regional

Lions end historic year for Mesa

No matter what the Colorado Mesa volleyball team tried, the Mavericks couldn’t get into rhythm and fell one match shy of their first NCAA Division II Elite 8 appearance in school history.
Arkansas-Fort Smith completed its unexpected run, defeating the Mavericks 26-24, 21-25, 25-17, 25-19 to win the South Central Region title on Sunday afternoon at Brownson Arena.
“We’re disappointed (with the loss and) having regionals at home, yet hats off to Arkansas-Fort Smith,” CMU coach Dave Fleming said. “They did a great job stopping our middles. They were getting touches on everything. Teams don’t do that against us. I think that threw us off rhythm.
“They also passed great. Ball-handling, first contacts, that’s the best team we’ve played (doing that) all year. I don’t know if they’re like that all year, but they played great tonight. Their passes were always in system. Their hitters were able to take swings. (Setter Jordyn) Moody was chasing the ball around more than normal. We couldn’t get into rhythm because of it.”
