CMU Athletics Recap Looking Forward to Spring
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many facets of life, including the world of sports and CMU athletics. The CMU Sports Department, working under NCAA and RMAC guidelines, has developed specific operational recommendations for the use of sports facilities, testing, signaling, and incorporating protocols into l ‘campus-wide last fall to ensure the safety of student-athletes and on the field when possible.
As spring approaches, flexibility and adaptability will continue to be essential. Maverick fans are encouraged to keep abreast of the latest information, including attendance protocols, on cmumavericks.com and CMU’s sports social media channels.
Golf men and women
Due to the socially distanced nature of the sport, the Maverick men’s and women’s golf teams had the most “normal” season of any CMU sports program. As in previous years, golf is split between the fall and spring seasons. In the fall, the two teams played three tournaments. The men registered two second places and a third place while the women finished second, third and fourth in their outings.
Both teams will resume in March with further regular season tournaments leading up to the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC) Championship, scheduled for April 19-21. The Mavericks hope to qualify for their respective NCAA tournaments held in May.
The RMAC canceled the 2020 football schedule, but left individual institutions to plan matches at their discretion. The Mavericks were one of four RMAC teams and one of ten Division II teams that played in the fall. The Mavericks went 2-1 in their season, including an overtime victory over Chadron State in their home season opener on October 10, which was also the first game played under new head coach Tremaine Jackson. Two more games of the fall season have been canceled due to the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases nationally and nationally.
Cross country was another sport capable of competing, albeit in a limited way compared to a “normal” year. The Mavericks have competed in two regular season competitions, hosting the Maverick Open at Lincoln Park Golf Course on October 10. They then competed in the RMAC Championships two weeks later. Based on their arrival at the conference, the Maverick men team and two individual women qualified for the NCAA D2 XC Invitational in Lubbock, Texas. This invitation was a pseudo-replacement for the regional and national competitions, which were canceled. The Maverick men took second place as a team and finished eighth in the final national standings. Kira MacGill led the Maverick Women and was named RMAC Freshman of the Year.
Volleyball and football
RMAC has moved the volleyball and soccer seasons to the spring semester. The volleyball team will begin their campaign on January 24 and play one or two games per week before the RMAC Championships, which take place April 8-11. All matches will be against RMAC opponents. Many of their matches will be played in 3-team pod formats. The Mavericks will play a total of five home games.
The men’s and women’s soccer teams, which will have new head coaches Jon Fridal (men) and Megan Remec (women), will also have abbreviated schedules for the conference only starting in March. The women currently have ten games on the program, including five at home. The men’s team has six games on the schedule, including three at home. RMAC tournaments will start on April 20.
NCAA football and volleyball tournaments have been canceled.
CMU’s winter sports include basketball, swimming and diving, indoor athletics and wrestling, all of which have been significantly affected at different levels by the pandemic. The NCAA has reduced the number of championship qualifiers, but details vary by sport.
The number of contests allowed has been reduced to 22 games (from 26) and the Mavericks are playing a conference-only schedule, which began in December. Teams must play at least 11 games to be eligible for the RMAC and NCAA tournaments and the Mavericks are on track to reach that number. To date, the Maverick men have started 7-0 and are ranked ninth nationally. CMU women are among the top 7-1s in RMAC and receive votes in the national ballot.
Maverick’s men staged a triangle in early December and resumed their season with two doubles wins at Hays, Kansas last weekend. They begin a series of RMAC duels this Saturday as they host Adams State University and eagerly await the NCAA regionals on February 27 at Adams State. The location of the domestic tournament remains to be determined, but will be with a reduced support size.
The CMU women begin their shortened season this weekend with a trip to South Carolina and Tennessee, and plan to host Jan. 29-30. The WCWC National Championships are scheduled for March 5-6 in Adrian, Michigan. The NCAA does not yet sponsor women’s wrestling as a championship sport.
Swimming and diving
The season has been constantly changing. After a 4-week delay from the normal start in early October, the Maverick women were able to set up two double meet before the holidays, but like their male counterparts, saw their traditional A3 Performance Invitational before Thanksgiving canceled. The two teams resumed their seasons last weekend at the Air Force and reunited at BYU and Utah later this month. The Mavericks will then host the RMAC Championships February 17-20 at the El Pomar Natatorium. Like other RMAC Winter Championships, fans will not be admitted. The scaled-down NCAA Championships are scheduled for March 17-20 in Birmingham, Alabama.
The Mavericks have yet to compete, but plan to compete in two small competitions in February at UCCS and Western Colorado University in preparation for the RMAC Championships Feb. 26-27 in Gunnison. The NCAA Championships are March 12-13 in Birmingham, Alabama.
Apart from a slight reduction in the number of competitions allowed, spring sports foresee an essentially “normal” season.
Baseball / Softball
The Maverick baseball team will begin its season with a non-conference weekend home game against the Northwestern Nazarene at Suplizio Field. The Mavericks begin a 36-game RMAC schedule on March 5 at Adams State University while the RMAC tournament is scheduled to begin May 12 with the NCAA tournament scheduled for May 20.

Twenty of these games are scheduled at home in the traditional 2-day, 4-game weekend programming format. The RMAC tournament is scheduled for May 6-8 at the top seed and the NCAA tournaments will begin a week later.
The CMU women’s lacrosse team, which will be under new head coach Shannon McHale, will start their season on March 14 with their first of three non-conference games at home against Colorado College. They will start the RMAC game on March 27 while the RMAC tournament will be held from May 7 to 9.
The men’s lacrosse team, which were 7-0 unbeaten before the remainder of the 2020 season was canceled, will start the 2021 season on the road with a few non-conference games. They will kick off the RMAC game on April 3 and play four of their last five regular season games at home. The RMAC tournament will take place May 7-8.
Although most of the fall season has been canceled, Maverick tennis teams played in a scrum in early October in Denver, and several players played individually in an ITA Tour event later that month.
They will start what appears to be a busy spring on February 5 in Nebraska and have a full schedule of regional opponents at the NCAA Division I, II and III levels. As a new member of PacWest for the sport, they hope to meet a few opponents of PacWest during the regular season and qualify for the PacWest tournament, scheduled for April 21-24 and the NCAA tournament in May.
The exact timing is yet to be determined, but the Mavericks plan to open the season in late February.
The exact schedule has not been determined, but after the Mavericks complete the Short Indoor Program, they plan to compete in several competitions leading up to the RMAC Championships, scheduled for April 30 through May 2 at the CSU-Pueblo and the Championships.
