Players leave program after suspension for bomb prank

FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Two Colorado State University women's
basketball players who were suspended for setting off a chemical
bomb in a prank outside a teammate's apartment last month have left
the team.

Freshman starter Kelly Jo Mullaney and reserve Raysha Ritter
told coach Jen Warden that they won't return to the team. They were
suspended along with two other players on Jan. 12. The other two,
freshmen guards Emily Neal, a starter, and Brittney Stirling,
returned to the team last week.

Mullaney is from Minneapolis and Ritter is from Grand Junction,
Colo.

No injuries or structural damage resulted when the bomb, made of
chemicals that create an explosive acid, went off Jan. 8 outside
Kally Rae Finley's residence, police said.
