Fort Collins, Colo. - The Colorado State women’s tennis team enters spring break with a 1-3 record and are coming off a difficult trip to Lincoln Neb., where they suffered defeats to Drake and Nebraska. The Rams will look to rebound as they travel throughout California starting on March 17 at Cal State Fullerton.

The trip will wrap up on Saturday, March 22 against Cal State Los Angeles.
