The Colorado School of Mines volleyball team entered the week ranked sixteenth in the nation and were prepared to make a run at the RMAC tournament championship. After a win in Tuesday’s opening round over Fort Lewis, Mines’s hopes of capturing both regular season and postseason titles came to an end against Adams State, but the lady Orediggers are still in good shape to make the NCAA Championships as the top eight in each region make the tourney. Mines was ranked No.2 in this week’s regional ranking.
The No. 13 Colorado School of Mines volleyball team finished their regular season with a road game at Colorado Christian and a home game against UCCS. In their first match after claiming the regular season RMAC title, the Lady Orediggers could not keep their 15 match winning streak going against Colorado Christian (18-10, 16-6 RMAC), losing 3-0. The result was different on senior night as the Orediggers dispatched the pesky UCCS Mountain Lions 3-1.
Saturday afternoon saw the Lady Orediggers volleyball team travel to South Dakota to take on Black Hills State and come away victorious, 3-0.
