GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) Last weekend, CMU's ninth ranked men's and eleventh ranked women's swim teams won every event but one at Colorado School of Mines. They broke eight records in the process and to say that they had a good meet is an understatement.
During winter break, it's their hardest training time as they gear up for the conference championships about a month from now.
Both the swim and dive teams have gotten several national qualifiers. This weekend, the Mavericks women's swim team will host Western Colorado in their final home dual of the season. For some of the women, it's their last chance to prove they deserve to compete at the RMAC championships.
"It'll be a true competition for our women swimmers against their women swimmers," said head swimming and diving coach Geoff Hanson. "Western is a tough team. We have seen them once already at their place. They have got the reigning RMAC Swimmer of the Year and she is a national runner up."
"It's always fun to race against her," said sophomore swimmer Sierra Forbord. "She is some good competition for me. Hopefully that will be a good swim for me for the 200 and 100. We're all pretty tired because of winter training but I think it should be good."
