The Colorado Mammoth of the National Lacrosse League announced

it will hold the 2004 NLL All-Star game at the Pepsi Center on Feb.

22.

More importantly however is that the All-Star game will kick off

with the first indoor lacrosse game played at the collegiate

level.

The game features an exciting matchup between the CSU Rams

lacrosse team and rival University of Colorado-Boulder. The game

begins at 11 a.m. followed by the All-Star Skills Competition at

1:30 p.m. and the All-Star Game at 4 p.m. Tickets start at $7 and

go on sale at 10 a.m. on Nov. 29.

In other CSU lacrosse news, alumni player and three-time captain

Kale Nelson became a member of the Colorado Mammoth lacrosse team

after open tryouts.

Nelson, a 6-foot 2-inch, 220-pound attack and midfielder, had 24

goals and 18 assists in his three-year career at CSU before

suffering a knee injury that kept him out of action his senior

year.

“Kale will need to be blue-collared in his approach to the game

and will need to keep his head up at all times,” said CSU head

coach Flip Naumburg.

Nelson was named to the USL-MDIA All-American Team twice and

also has two National Championship titles attached to his belt.

“His ability to get inside will help him at the next level,”

Naumburg said. “He is big enough to take a pounding and he should

be able to let his skills loose in the box game.”

The Rams begin their regular season in early February with a

pair of games in Tempe, Ariz., against Arizona State University,

while the Colorado Mammoth begin their second official season on

Jan. 2 at the Pepsi Center.
