Colorado State on The Mtn....
In the second of two live televised games on  The Mtn. this season, Colorado State and New Mexico will face off at 4 p.m. MDT May 2 in Albuquerque, N.M.

A League of Her Own...
Colorado State Head Coach Mary Yori earned her 700th and 701st career victories last weekend in the doubleheader against New Mexico. The Rams won the first game 2-1 and the second game 4-3 in nine innings. Yori notched her name into the CSU record books, becoming only the second coach in Colorado State history to reach 100 wins. Last season, Yori surpassed 200 victories in Las Cruces, N.M., when the Rams beat Illinois-Chicago, 9-5, at the Hotel Encanto de Las Cruces Invitational. Her record at CSU now stands at 240-216, making her the winningest coach in CSU softball history. Yori also surpassed another milestone last season, coaching in her 1,000th game. That game was a win against Utah State, 11-3 in five innings.
