Mountain Lions Picked to Win RMAC, Two Picked to Preseason All-RMAC Team
The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs was a unanimous choice to win the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference and two Mountain Lions were selected preseason All-RMAC in the conference's preseason coaches' poll.
UCCS receive all nine possible first-place votes (coaches can't pick their own team). Western New Mexico, thanks in part to UCCS coach Phil Trujillo's first-place vote, was picked second with 23 points. Fort Lewis was picked to take third with 25 points, followed by Colorado Mines (42), Regis (48), Colorado State-Pueblo (58) and Nebraska-Kearney (60). First-year programs Adams State and Mesa State were tabbed ninth and tenth respectively.
The Mountain Lions return four golfers from the 2008-09 team that finished 16th nationally. Two of those, Brian Morfeld and Riley Andrews both juniors were selected to the preseason all-conference team.
Others selected for the preseason All-RMAC team were Scott Crichton of Western New Mexico (the preseason player of the year), Jim Knous of Colorado Mines and Brandon McCoy of Colorado State-Pueblo.
