CMU Women's Wrestling: Mavs embrace underdog role

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) Through their first season, CMU women's wrestling has seen it all. From wrestling the number one team the first week of the season to winning their home match against Lindenwood and placing several wrestlers throughout the year.

Sometimes the problem was just not having enough wrestlers on the team and having to forfeit weight classes. With the success from wrestlers like senior Carson Pipher and freshman Sierra Brown Ton, the Mavericks can set the standard for the program moving forward with a strong showing at the Women's Collegiate National Championships this weekend.

"I think there is that underdog. I like being underdog, it's fine," said head coach Travis Mercado. "We're going to go out and compete."

"If we just show up and give our full effort and compete at our best, then we should perform pretty well and set a high standard for the next couple years and the next teams to follow us so that's exciting," said Carson Pipher.
