CMU’s final game canceled
Colorado Mesa and West Texas A&M announced late Wednesday afternoon that they have mutually decided to cancel next week’s football game in Canyon, Texas.
CMU has temporarily halted athletics in the wake of rising COVID-19 numbers in Mesa County. West Texas will play Pittsburg State (Kansas) next week, which had been scheduled to play Western Colorado on Nov. 21. Western canceled the remaining two games on its schedule, including a game against CMU, and is moving to online classes the rest of the semester.
The cancellation of CMU’s final two games ends the Mavericks’ abbreviated season at 2-1.
Mavs add outside hitter to team
Brooklynn Leggett, an outside/opposite hitter at Corner Canyon High School in Draper, Utah, has signed to play volleyball at Colorado Mesa.
The Mavericks, whose season begins in January, added the 6-foot high school standout, who was on the 2020 American Volleyball Coaches Association All-America watch list as a senior, on the first day of the November signing period.
Leggett is a two-time all-state player and played for Club V, which finished second in the open division at the 2020 AAU national championships.
“Brooklyn is a great athlete that jumps very well. She plays above the net, has a terminating arm swing and will be able to slow down the RMAC’s best with her block,” CMU coach Dave Fleming said in a release announcing the signing.
