The Pack's front line quintet of Alea Wildman (Jr., Denver, Colo.), Gina Abbott (So., Salinas, Calif.), Tamia Herholz (So., Colorado Springs, Colo.), Ashley Wilkinson (Jr., Colorado Springs, Colo.) and Bernadette Pitre (Jr., Clifton, Colo.) combined to dominate the Cowgirls, registering a total of 34 kills in the match.  Leading the charge was Wildman, who had ten kills and hit .250 against New Mexico Highlands.

Defensively, the ThunderWolves were also solid, registering six blocks and helping force the Cowgirls to commit 23 attack errors.

CSU-Pueblo will get a five-day layover after this match, returning home for its annual "Block Out Breast Cancer" night Thursday vs. UC-Colorado Springs, the first match of a three-match home stand next weekend.
