This year, Sydney Liming and John Howard worked together to create a collegiate club volleyball league for Colorado and Wyoming. There has never been such a league within either state. Over the last few years, the team had participated in adult women’s leagues. There are 16 teams from CSM, CSU, CU, DU, CMU, UCD, UNC, and Wyoming that make up the new league. Volleyball played in 6 regional tournaments throughout the 2012-2013 school year, and continually placed at least one team in the top 2 at the tournaments. The tournaments have been held at all of the different schools, with two tournaments being held at Mines.
