FORT COLLINS, Colo.—The Colorado State women’s tennis team is set to continue conference play at home this weekend. The first match will take place Saturday and continue Sunday.

The Rams (3-10, 0-2 Mountain West) host Portland State (3-11) Saturday at 10 a.m. MT at the University Tennis Complex. The Vikings have had a tough season with losing four out of their last five matches. CSU comes into the match with two consecutive losses and is looking for a win.

On Sunday, CSU hosts Boise State at 12 p.m. at the University Tennis Complex. The Broncos (7-8, 1-1 MW) had a good start to their conference schedule with a victory over New Mexico, and a loss to TCU in their most recent outing.

Colorado State will also host a match Saturday evening at the University Tennis Complex, when Boise State takes on Wyoming.  That match is set to start at 5 p.m. MT.  

If weather conditions are poor, the CSU vs. Boise State match will start at 9 a.m. MT at Miramont.

Admission is free and open to the public.

The Rams compete next April 7 against New Mexico in Laramie, Wyo., at 10 a.m. MT.
