ThunderWolves lose in four to UCCS

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. ( - Oct. 19, 2013) - CSU-Pueblo lost its sixth straight match Saturday as the ThunderWolves lost in four to UC-Colorado Springs, 25-14, 25-22, 19-25, 25-22.

UC-Colorado Springs was carried by solid blocking, registering 12 team blocks against the Pack, but otherwise, the match was pretty even statistically.  While UCCS was led with 13 kills apiece by Kim Catlett and Jordan Banich, but the best player on the floor Saturday was CSU-Pueblo's Brianna Bryant (Sr., Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.), who had a game-high 19 kills, hitting a career-best .517 and coming through with four blocks.  

Despite Bryant's monstrous match, though, the rest of the ThunderWolves combined for 27 kills and 29 attack errors, hitting -.018 as a team.  With Bryant's the numbers, the Pack hit .092.

The loss now sinks CSU-Pueblo down the RMAC standings as the Pack falls to 7-13 overall and 4-7 in RMAC play. 

The Pack will return home next weekend to face Chadron State and Black Hills State on Thursday and Friday.
