Colorado State University’s varsity men’s and women’s Polo teams won their matches on February 13 and 14.
The men’s team played University of Connecticut on Friday and won with a score of 22-13.
The women’s team played Southern Methodist University with home advantage in the B.W. Pickett arena on the foothills campus on Saturday afternoon. At halftime, CSU was ahead 8-5. By the end of the third chukker, they were up 13-6. A lot of fast-paced scoring runs up the arena, excellent blocking, and strong offense lead the CSU ladies to an overwhelming victory over SMU with a final score of 18-7.
While the game of Polo may have a lot of unfamiliar terminology and rules of play for new spectators, the game is fast-paced and it’s easy to show your Ram pride. Unlike other equestrian sports, cheering is appropriate.
Tickets are $3 for students, $5 for adults and children are free. CSU Polo logo gear is available for purchase at the matches and also supports the team.
The women play again Friday February, 20 at 7 p.m. at the B.W. Pickett Arena. The CSU women’s team will take on Skidmore College.
The equestrian center is located at 735 Overland Trail Drive. Parking is free.
Next home match: February 28th at 7 p.m. Varsity men take on SMU.
