Aztec Softball Plays Host to 24th Annual Campbell/Cartier Classic This Weekend
The San Diego State softball team opens its home portion of the 2014 schedule this weekend with the 24th annual Campbell/Cartier Classic at SDSU Softball Stadium.

This year's classic features six teams, including the Aztecs (4-1), No. 23/25 California, Cal State Fullerton, Saint Mary's, South Dakota and Texas State.

The six teams will play a combined 15 games over the four days with one on Thursday, six on Friday across two stadiums (three at SDSU Softball Stadium, three at USD Softball Complex), five on Saturday and three on Sunday.

SDSU, which is receiving votes in the Softball poll, will play host to Cal State Fullerton at 6 p.m. PT Thursday, South Dakota (4:30 p.m. PT) and No. 23/25 California (7 p.m. PT) on Friday, Texas State at 2 p.m. PT Saturday and Saint Mary's at 1 p.m. PT Sunday.

The tournament is named after Susanne Campbell and Karin Cartier, who lost their lives during the 1991 softball season in a single-car accident that took place in Rosarito, Mexico. It left a lasting mark on teammates, coaches and the program. To pay tribute to Campbell and Cartier, the Aztec softball team renamed the SDSU Spring Classic in 1994 to the Campbell/Cartier Classic in memory of their friendship and fine athletic ability.

After one weekend, the Aztecs have three players batting over .400 in freshman Sydnee Cable (.462), senior Katie Mathis (.429) and senior Patrice Jackson (.417).

Sophomore Danielle O'Toole is perfect in the circle at 4-0 with a 1.35 ERA over 20 2/3 innings, striking out 19.
