The victory in the RMAC quarterfinals against New Mexico Highlands on Nov. 4 was the first playoff victory in program history.

The Mountain Lions lost to Fort Lewis 2-1 on Nov. 6, ending the 2015 season. The 11 wins was the second most in program history.

Men’s and Women’s Cross Country
The men advanced to the regional meet on Nov. 7, where they finished ninth and did not advance to the national meet. Similarly, the women made it to regionals and finished seventh, and did not advance to nationals. It was the first time since 2010 that neither team advanced to the national meet.

Men’s Soccer
Record: 13-5, lost in RMAC Tournament quarterfinals

Highlighted by a six-game winning streak in the middle of the season, the 13 wins were the most in a season since 1998. The Mountain Lions fell 1-0 to CSU-Pueblo on Nov. 4, ending their season.

Women’s Golf
UCCS finished fourth and seventh in the two RMAC events of the fall. The fourth place finish was the best finish in team history when you factor in the number of teams in the tournament. 2015-16 is the third year for the program.

Volleyball
Record: 15-11 entering play Nov. 14

A six-game winning streak in the middle of the season was countered with a four-game losing streak near the end of the season. The Mountain Lions earned an RMAC Tournament berth for the second straight year and will play in the quarterfinals Nov. 17.
