Before the pandemic halted the Colorado State University Rams softball season in 2020, pitcher Jessica Jarecki was finding a groove in the circle.

The Littleton native struck out 10 in the season opener, threw a complete-game shutout against Canisius and logged 64 innings with a 2.41 ERA.

The grad student is back in 2021 with more eligibility because of the pandemic and has opened the season with a 4-5 record.

Jarecki had transferred to CSU as a junior after playing her first two college seasons at Division II Chadron State in Nebraska. Her brother Matthew was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the 2018 MLB draft.
