GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. -- In the preseason Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference poll the Colorado Mesa University Women's Volleyball Team was ranked the number two team in the RMAC.
The previous year, the Mavericks were ranked preseason number seven.
"We could always hope for first but after never been recognized for the last three years, second is a really great spot to be in right now," said Melissa Hess, CMU Middle.
The Mavericks' season starts Friday, September 5 against Eastern New Mexico University at the West Texas A&M Lady Buff Classic.
