For the second time this season freshman center Rohrer has received Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors. The RMAC announced that Rohrer received the honor Monday following a weekend where she averaged 17.5 points and four blocks per game.
Rohrer completely dominated Adams State University and Fort Lewis College this weekend on both sides of the ball as she led Pack women's basketball to a weekend sweep. The freshman made 16-of-32 from the field. She also pulled down 5.5 rebounds per game and averaged 2.0 assists per game from the center position.
On Friday night, Rohrer kicked off her weekend with five blocks against the Grizzlies, matching a career-high in rejections. Rohrer also helped the Pack's offense with 10 points and three assists. She made 5-of-11 from the field as the Pack toppled Adam State 66-52.
Saturday night, Rohrer stole the show with an incredible 25-point performance against Fort Lewis. On fire from the opening tip, Rohrer drained 7-of-10 from the field in the first half. Her 17 first half points totaled half of the Pack's offense over the opening 20 minutes. She finished with a career-best 25 points.
Defensively Rohrer made an impact with three blocks and seven boards. She also had a steal as the Pack bounced the Skyhawks 64-54.

CSU-Pueblo owns a program-best 21-4 (16-3 RMAC) record.
Urenda of the Pack wrestling team won at 149 in a dual against Colorado Mesa to improve to 7-1 in dual competition. His slim 4-3 win was thanks to a third period escape after being tied 3-3 with opponent Drew Schumann, who ranked No. 4 in Thursday's national ranking release and was crowned RMAC Champion Jan. 31.
Urenda has now defeated the No. 2 and No. 4 ranked wrestlers in the nation this season. The senior ranked No. 6 in Super Region Four in the Feb. 10 poll, while Schumann was No. 1.
The Pack basketball teams have three games remaining in the regular season and play host to Colorado Christian and Colorado Mines over the weekend. The ThunderWolves wrestling team concludes the regular season Wednesday at New Mexico Highlands.
