After the next two batters got out, up came Bo Nuanez (Jr., Lafayette, Colo.) who then belted a 2-2 pitch over the left field wall, her second of the year, giving the Pack the dramatic come from behind victory 4-3.

In the finale of the four-game set the T-Wolves continued to dominate the Loper's pitching, collecting 15 hits in the game with an 11-1 victory in 5 innings. Bosio and Desiree Carrillo (Fr., Pueblo, Colo.) eachgathering three hits a piece.  Starting pitcher Amber Higby (Sr., Pueblo, Colo.) got her fourth win on the season.

The Pack will look to continue their winning ways as they hit the road for a four game series against Chadron State on Saturday and Sunday in Nebraska.
