COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. –
The Mountain West announced its preseason softball poll on Tuesday, with Colorado State earning 38 points, tied for fourth among the league’s nine teams. The poll was created from votes from each school’s head coach.

The Rams have finished tied for second each of the past two seasons, and return eight starters from last year’s squad, which went 25-24.

San Diego State, the two-time defending champions, earned seven of the nine first-place votes, totaling 63 points. Behind the Aztecs, Fresno State – which tied with CSU with an 11-7 MW record a year ago – earned two-first place votes and 56 points, followed by Boise State (42). The Rams share the fourth-place position with conference newcomer San José State, last year’s WAC champion and NCAA tournament participant.

Nevada (36), UNLV (27), New Mexico (13) and Utah State (11) round out the preseason poll.

The Rams will rely on their 12 returning letterwinners – two of which were All-MW selections in 2013 with Ashlie Ortega earning Easton Fastpitch All-America honors – in addition to six talented newcomers.

CSU begins its 2014 season Friday, facing five teams in the Kajikawa Classic, held in Tempe, Ariz. The Rams will play their home opener March 7, part of the three-day Colorado State Classic.
