This weekend CSU club sports fans were treated to a deluge of

events. The men’s and women’s lacrosse teams, the ultimate Frisbee

teams (Hibida A and B) and the CSU cycling team all hosted

competitions on campus.

The CSU lacrosse teams were both featured on the intramural

fields Saturday. With cold air and wind blowing, fans were not out

in numbers, but a few fans with a lot of heart faced the elements

and supported the Rams.

The women’s team played the North club team and played very

well. The varsity squad won 8-3 in convincing fashion, and the

junior varsity squad came out on top in their battle with North JV

6-2.

On Sunday the varsity team beat up on the Central club team

9-3.

The men’s lacrosse team saw more support Saturday afternoon, as

the sun came out from behind the clouds. The Rams, as they have

done all season, got to work fast and didn’t let up until the game

was over. The team seemed to score at will against a weak Utah Utes

defense. When the last seconds ticked off the clock the Rams had

another victory 19-4.

CSU’s ultimate team, Hibida, went to the semifinals of the Rocky

Mountain Tournament before losing to the North Texas Mean

Green.

Ram Cycling took to the Oval for the CSU Oval Criterium. The

women’s A category raced first and after a thrilling race of 30

riders Colorado took the win followed by Northern Colorado and in

third place Sarah Germundson from CSU.

Both CSU and CU packed the Oval with their teams, while few

riders from elsewhere made the trip for the men’s A race. Other

colleges in the Criterium were the Air Force Academy, Fort Lewis

College, Weber State and Wyoming.

At different points during the race CSU and CU both had three

laps.

In a sea of CU yellow and CSU green and white, a rider from

Weber State pulled out the victory edging CSU sophomore Robby

Ketchell down the final stretch.

In the men’s Category 4 race finishers from CSU included Rob

Bescheinen who finished first and Brady Wimmer who finished third

among 60 riders. For full results go to RamsCycling.com.

What’s on tap for the CSU Club teams this weekend

CSU baseball will head to Greeley for a couple of games with the

UNC Bears.

Men’s lacrosse will be in Ann Arbor, Mich., for its toughest

test this year. The Rams will face No. 5 Michigan on Friday and No.

8 Minnesota-Duluth on Saturday. On Sunday No. 1 will play No. 2 as

CSU takes on University of California-Santa Barbara.

The CSU women’s lacrosse team will take on CU Friday at 7:00

pm., in what team members call the biggest game of the year for the

team.
