Mesa swimming and diving teams have plenty of talent returning for season

Colorado Mesa’s men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams took a step closer to finishing in the top 20 in the nation last year.
Briana Purkapile became the first Maverick swimmer (male or female) to earn All-America honors with an eighth-place finish in the 400-yard individual medley.
Diver Brock Martin earned his seventh and eighth All-America awards with top-eight finishes in the 1- and 3-meter dives.
Both graduated and started teaching careers, but CMU coach Ron Allen has 17 returning women and 15 returning men this season.
