Dasch, Marino Named to Preseason All-RMAC Team

Colorado Mesa juniors Michael Dasch Jr. (Mt. Carmel ’15)  and Michael Marino (Aliso Niguel ’15) were named to the preseason All-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC) team. Dasch, a midfielder, is making his first appearance on the All-RMAC team while faceoff-specialist Marino is a returning All-RMAC first-teamer.

Dasch totaled 15 points (13 goals, 2 assists), 11 groundballs, and 5 caused turnovers in 2017.

Marino won 64.6% of his faceoffs, scored three points (1g, 2a),  and recovered 71 groundballs in 2017 to garner All-RMAC First Team honors.

Coming off a program-best 16-2 record, the Mavericks are ranked No. 14 nationally and are favored to win the RMAC for the third consecutive season.  They also won the Western Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association crowns in 2014 and 2015 before the RMAC began sponsoring the sport in 2016.
