The weekend brings another tournament for the Rams. The Capital Classic in Sacramento, Calif., begins Thursday with games vs. Dartmouth and Sacramento State.

Women's tennis home Saturday
The CSU women's tennis team began its spring break trip in Hilton Head Island, S.C. over the weekend.

During the trip, the Rams will travel to play Armstrong Atlantic State on Monday in Savannah, Ga.
The tennis team returns home Saturday to take on Eastern Washington. The match, at Miramont Lifestyle Fitness in south Fort Collins (behind Sam's Club), will begin at 2 p.m. MT. Admission is free.
The CSU water polo team is spending the week in Huntington Beach, Calif., for a spring break training camp at Golden West Community College.

The Rams begin the tournament playing Wagner at 10:15 a.m. MT Friday and later will have a rematch against Cal State San Bernardino Friday afternoon. The Rams beat CSUSB, 10-6, at the LMU Invitational last weekend. On Saturday, the water polo team will meet Redlands at 9 a.m. MT and then conclude its spring break trip by playing Cal Baptist at 1 p.m. MT.
Colorado State men's golf will compete Monday and Tuesday in the Barona Collegiate Cup, hosted by San Diego State in Lakeside, Calif. The team has been recently ranked 19th in the nation by Golfweek. The Rams won the tournament in 2003.

The CU Potts Invitational commences Saturday at the University of Colorado. This marks the beginning of the outdoor track season for Colorado State. Adding depth to the future of the track and field team with the signing of Kelby Dias last week, the Rams hope to have an accomplished 2009 season.
Last year, the Rams opened their season at the CU Potts Invitational with outstanding performances from Missy Faubus in the discus and Meagan Berg in the hammer, both hitting NCAA regional-qualifying marks.
