United Soccer Coaches College Team Academic Release

PUEBLO, Colo. (October 4, 2018) - The Colorado State University-Pueblo women's soccer team continues a three-game road trip this week and travel to Black Hills State Friday and play Sunday at Regis. Additionally, the ThunderWolves were recognized by United Soccer Coaches as one of 484 Division II women's teams who posted a team GPA of 3.0 or higher during the 2017-18 academic year.

The Pack along with CSU-Pueblo men's soccer is one of 192 institutions to have both of their programs recognized.

The ThunderWolves are back in action after scoring a convincing 4-0 win at New Mexico Highlands.

Seniors Mackenzie Bean (Sr., Bothell, Wash.) and Laikyn Koss (Sr., Riverside, Calif.) scored two goals each and Bean added an assist on the first goal in the effort.

As a team the ThunderWolves allowed just seven shots and four on goal, second lowest mark of the season.

At goalkeeper, starter Rylie Martin (Jr., Colorado Springs, Colo.) recorded seventy minutes at the net and made two saves and faced two shots in the first half. Martin earned her first career assist in the 57' when she booted a ball past midfield ahead to Bean who finished against her defender.

Alexa Eastep (So., Henderson, Nev.) made her second appearance of the year and finished the remaining time in regulation. She faced zero shots and was on her feet during her playing time.
