COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Nov. 2, 2011) - CSU-Pueblo sophomore keeper Savannah Thompson (So., Upland, Calif.) has been voted the RMAC Goalkeeper of the Year, the RMAC announced Wednesday.

Thompson, in her second year as the ThunderWolves' keeper, played 14 games in goal this season, facing 252 shots and making 110 saves, leading the RMAC in that category.  Her total of 110 saves is the 22nd-most in the nation this season and ninth-most in a single season in school history.  Her average of 7.86 saves per game is also the 5th-most in school history.

Thompson received the honor as part of being selected the RMAC's first-team goalkeeper.  She is the first CSU-Pueblo goalkeeper since 2003 to earn RMAC first-team distinction (career goals-against-average leader, Nadia Fercha) and just the fifth Pack keeper in the 18-year history of the program to garner first-team status (Candy Cotkin received first-team honors from 1994-96).
