CSU-Pueblo softball hits road for weekend series at Mines

PUEBLO, Colo. (April 6, 2018) - Colorado State University-Pueblo softball goes on the road this week for a four game Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference series at Colorado School of Mines starting Saturday at noon at CSM Softball Field.

The Pack are on a quick turnaround after playing Colorado Christian at home Wednesday in a nonconference doubleheader. CSU-Pueblo outlasted CCU in game one 1-0 in what turned out to be a pitcher's dual between Pack hurler K'Lee Kent (Sr., Hobbs, NM) and the Cougars' Kenzie Mattey. Kent got the better of her opponent, throwing seven innings and allowed no runs and three hits to go with five strikeouts. 

The ThunderWolves handed Mattey her third loss of the season.

CCU escaped with a 4-2 win in game two. The Pack had their chances to score, bringing the tying run to the plate in the final at bat but a double play ended the game.

SETTING THE STAGE
