CMU Beach Volleyball Hits Grand Junction for First Time
Colorado Mesa University added Beach Volleyball as an NCAA sport back in April of 2015. Saturday, April 2 will be the first set of beach volleyball games CMU has hosted.
CMU will play Regis April 2, starting at 3pm. The courts are located on the south side of the Maverick Pavilion, on campus. There is no fee for this event. ***Update: Regis has backed out. CMU is going to hold a maroon and white game; they will split their team and scrimmage. They will also compete with CMU alumni.
Beach Volleyball is similar to how tennis is played. CMU number ones will play Regis number ones, CMU2 vs REG2, and CMU3 vs REG3. Each individual match is best out of three; first two games go to 21 and the third goes to 15. Five teams play, so the school needs 3 team wins in order to win the Team Duel. Beach Volleyball is a Women's Sport for CMU and each team is made up of two girls.
