EDMOND, Okla. (GoThunderWolves.com - Feb. 8, 2012) - CSU-Pueblo 133-pounder Jesse Hillhouse (Jr., Casper, Wyo.) is now ranked second in the nation, the NCAA Division II Coaches' Association announced Wednesday.

As a team, however, CSU-Pueblo fell out of the national rankings, not appearing in the top 20 nor the "receiving votes" category.

Hillhouse, who is 25-5 so far this season, is 25-4 wrestling at 133 pounds, with only one of his four losses coming to a Division II wrestler.  He has won his last 10 matches at 133 pounds entering Wednesday's dual with Oklahoma City University.
