FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- The CSU swimming team begins its season Friday at 5 p.m. at the EPIC center in Fort Collins, with the annual Early Bird Invitational. The tournament continues through Saturday with events starting at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The Rams were picked to finish fifth in the Mountain West Conference behind Wyoming, UNLV, Utah and BYU, which was picked to win the swimming and diving title.
After a bittersweet loss to TCU, the Rams (3-3, 1-1 MWC) now must look at a tough road trip, as they travel this week to take on the 14th-ranked Utah Utes in Rice-Eccles Stadium. The Utes are 7-0, 3-0 in conference, and they're coming off a 40-7 win over Wyoming. Game time is set for noon MT Saturday.
After playing 11 of their first 16 matches at home, the No. 13 Rams will begin a stretch of their schedule in which they play five of the next six on the road. They will begin that stretch on Thursday night at UNLV, where first serve is set for 8 p.m. MT. CSU will continue its road trip on Sunday afternoon when it visits San Diego State for a 2 p.m. MT match.
The Rams will compete on Thursday and Friday at the Del Walker Intercollegiate in Long Beach, Calif. Head Coach Jamie Bermel is looking forward to this tournament.
"We won at Long Beach last year and we're playing on the same course," he said, "so I think the guys are going in pretty confident."
The Rams are back in action Monday after having a week off to prepare for Price's "Give `Em Five" Invitational in Las Cruces, N.M.. The tournament runs through Wednesday this week.
The Rams will get back to practice this week in preparation for their next race, the NCAA pre-nationals, to be held Saturday in Terre Haute, Ind., on the same course where the NCAA championships will be held in late November.
