GRAND JUNCTION, Colo (KKCO/KJCT) In their first year as a program, CMU women's wrestling has accomplished so much for a small, budding program. Freshman Alma Mendoza placed sixth and Emily Clawson placed seventh at the Missouri Valley Open and Caron Pipher won at the Wayland Baptist Open.
The team turns it's focus to their meet with Lindenwood University. It's their first home meet of 2019. The last time the Mavericks wrestled at home was the first week of the season against the top ranked Wayland Baptist University.
It will be a special event with the women wrestling before the men on Thursday night and fans can expect to see grit and competitiveness from these CMU women.
"I think we match up really well with Lindenwood," said CMU head coach Travis Mercado. "They are a smaller program this year. We have an opportunity to compete with them at the same level and i hope to pull out a win."
