ThunderWolves down Wildcats in mid-week tune up.
DENVER, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Oct. 21, 2010) - CSU-Pueblo enjoyed a much-needed dominant game Thursday night as the ThunderWolves marched into Denver for a match with NAIA Johnson & Wales and left with a quick three-set win, 25-11, 25-12 and 25-15.
CSU-Pueblo was the villain in handing JWU its 57th straight loss, and doing it by giving the Pack reserves a lot of work in the match.
Five ThunderWolves came away with four or more kills, with reserves Megan Koop (So., Littleton, Colo.) and Janae Heiser (Jr., Westminster, Colo.) getting good court time in in registering five and four kills, respectively. At setter, Myranda Cate (RFr., Yorba Linda, Calif.) got the bulk of the work, turning in 18 assists.
But the star of the night was regular starter Tamia Herholz (RSo., Colorado Springs, Colo.). Herholz accounted for a match-high 12 kills to just four errors for a .364 attack percentage. She also had 10 digs, second most on the team.
The win raises the ThunderWolves' 2010 mark to 7-13, and most importantly, provides a confidence boost as the Pack embarks on a trip to the Western Slope, where they will take on Mesa State Friday night and Fort Lewis on Saturday.
