Pioneers Enjoy Success at Home

Denver Triathlon participated in the Longmont Oktoberfest Sprint Saturday morning against the nation’s top teams and finished second, trailing only defending national champion Arizona State University. Sunday morning, the teams competed in a two-event Mile High Relays (swimming and running) on the Denver campus, a first for the program, to include swimming and running. Denver finished second once again and is proving that they may be within shouting distance of a national title in their newest sport. Still, Arizona State continues to look like the dominant program in Women’s Triathlon. Look for a repeat of this event next season and a possible full collegiate triathlon event at Aurora Reservoir.

Denver Earns NCAA Berth and Makes History During Wild Week

Denver men’s soccer (9-3-5, 4-1-1) had to play 220 minutes of soccer and win two nail-biting shootouts to emerge as conference Summit League Tournament champions in Macomb, Illinois. The Pioneers defeated UMKC (1-1, 4-3 PKs) and Oral Roberts (1-1, 3-2 PKs) in a hard-fought semifinal and final. The unlikely hero was back-up keeper Kobe Gray who head coach Jamie Franks inserted in both matches to defend penalties. Gray made key stops in both shootout sessions for the tournament win. Gray was named the tournament MVP in what is certainly a great trivia answer to the question: Name an NCAA conference tournament MVP who never played a minute in his team’s tournament regulation or overtime?
