            The pressure is on for Rangers basketball as both the Men’s and Women’s fix their gaze on the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference championships.  Following strong performances in the regular season, both teams finished within the top 5 of their respective divisions, earning them spots in the RMAC tournaments.  The Lady Rangers ended their season at No. 4 with a record of 16-6, while the Men’s team finished No. 5 overall with a record 14-8.

            It was not just the teams as a whole who received recognition, however. In all, seven Regis players earned RMAC honors.  On the Men’s squad, Christian Little earned Co-Freshman of the year and Jarrett Brodbeck and Dexter Sienko were both awarded spots on the All-RMAC First Team. For the Women’s, Majestie Robinson was picked for First Team, while Mary Sigler was selected for Second Team, while both Chante Church and Kaylie Rader were recognized as Honorable Mentions.

            The Men’s team also performed well enough to earn a home-turf seed, their first since the ’97-’98 season.  The team has worked incredibly hard to earn home court advantage and begin their road to the championship.  They host Metropolitan State University on Tuesday while the women’s squad hosts Fort Lewis College. With the women’s team on a four game win streak and the men’s with a two game win streak, both teams look to continue their hot streak and fight for two big wins at home.  

            Come out and support your Regis Rangers in such an exciting time of the year!
