The Mountaineer Athletic Association (MAA) has been the official booster club of Western Colorado University Athletics for 56 years. Western and your Mountaineers would not be one of the most successful programs in the NCAA Division II without the support of MAA, and you can directly benefit the Mountaineers this season.

If you do not wish to receive any member benefits, please consider making a 100% philanthropic gift to be used for athletic scholarships by checking the box on the donation form. Gifts of ANY size make a difference!

2018-19 was another successful year for Mountaineer Athletics. For the 20th time in 24 years of the award, Western Colorado University Athletics placed in the top 25 of the Division II Learfield IMG College Directors’ Cup standings. The Mountaineers finished in 23rd place, ahead of 245 other Division II programs, and have now finished in the top-48 in all 24 years of the competition. In the fall, the Western Cross Country teams returned to dominance with the men’s team finishing third and women’s team placing fourth at the NCAA DII Championships. The two teams combined for seven All-America honors. Women’s basketball won 16 games, which ranks fifth-best in program history. The team’s 12 conference victories tied for second-most. The tremendous season by the Mountaineers was rewarded with the program’s fifth RMAC Tournament berth and first in seven seasons. Senior Tammarrah Gothard was named the RMAC Defensive Player of the Year, leading the conference in steals. Western Track & Field moved into the warmer climate of Mountaineer Field House for the winter to compete during the indoor season. The Mountaineer men came together as a team and earned the program’s fifth indoor title and second in four seasons. Head Coach Lindsey Grasmick was named the conference and regional men’s coach of the year. At the Indoor National Championships, the men and women combined for eight All-American honors as the men’s team placed 17th and the women finished 32nd. Wrestling continued their dominance on the mat, grappling for the program’s seventh conference title in 2018-19. The Mountaineers qualified four wrestlers for the National Championships, including two true freshmen and two seniors. At the National Championships, the Mountaineers placed 24th as a team, with Brandon Supernaw earning All-American honors. Supernaw would also be recognized as an Academic AllAmerica selection for his performance in the classroom. Records continued to fall in the pool for the Western Women’s Swimming & Diving program. The season was highlighted with Randi Yarnell becoming the first female to win a national title and just the second swimmer to earn a title in school history. Yarnell earned the title in the 200-yard freestyle, ending her career with six All-American honors. As winter melted away, Western Track & Field moved outside onto the track at Mountaineer Bowl. After being named the regional track athlete of the year, Alicja Konieczek defended her title in the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase to earn her third career steeple title. Konieczek ended her career with nine national titles, 15 All-American honors, eight RMAC titles and three Academic All-America honors. She twice has been named the Academic All-America Team Member of the Year for women’s track and field/cross country and last year was named the Academic All-America Student-Athlete of the Year, which goes to the top academic student-athlete in all of Division II regardless of gender. Mountaineer Athletics also added two new varsity programs during 2018-19. The two programs, Esports and Cheer, will make their debuts this fall.
