DON'T FORGET TO VOTE FOR YOUR LOBOS IN THE NCAA'S "6TH FAN" CONTEST
The NCAA has launched the “6th Fan” contest where fans are asked to vote for their school in three ways. You can vote online HERE and via Facebook or Twitter by posting a message using the hash tags #NMEX and #6thfan. Fans can vote once per method, per day.
As of today, the University of New Mexico sits at #6 out of 345 schools! If the Lobos can stay in the Sweet Sixteen through Sunday night, we will get a donation of $10,000 to the University's general scholarship fund. If the Lobos are voted the top 6th Fan school, the University of New Mexico would receive a $100,000 contribution!

The Lobos got three more podium finishes last Saturday afternoon and that keyed the way for a runaway UNM win in the Jade Enterprises/Lobo Invitational, the squad’s first meet win since 2011. The win puts UNM in solid position as the squad heads to the postseason with the RMISA/NCAA West Regionals starting on February 21 in Minturn and Beaver Creek, Colorado. UNM ran away with the meet after winning both slaloms on Saturday as well as the women’s 10K freestyle and coming in second in the men’s 10K freestyle.
