The CSU softball team embarks to neighboring Utah for a three-game road trip beginning today.
First up for the Rams (7-33, 0-5 MWC) are the Utes of the University of Utah at 4 p.m.
The Utes (24-17, 2-1 MWC) currently sit in second place in the Mountain West Conference while the Rams are sixth in the conference. The two teams have not yet met this season.
Following the game against Utah, the Rams head to Provo to play a two-game set against the BYU Cougars.
BYU (25-15, 2-1 MWC) is tied for second in the Mountain West, just ahead of Utah thanks to a better non-conference record.
The Cougars and Utes both have high-powered offenses, ranking first and second in the Mountain West in both runs and walks, respectively.
The Cougars also hold their opponents to a conference-low .222 batting average.
Brittany Palish continues to lead the Rams offense in hitting at .325, more than 40 points higher than the next best CSU hitter. Palish currently ranks 20th in the Mountain West in batting average.
After the trip to Utah, the Rams do not play again until April 30 when they head to New Mexico for a single game against the Lobos.
