PUEBLO, Colo. (December 11, 2014) – The Colorado State University-Pueblo swimming and diving team closes the home portion of its 2014-15 schedule Friday versus Colorado College. The meet will take place at Pueblo County High School and is set to begin at 6 p.m.

A look at the ThunderWolves
CSU-Pueblo (0-6 in dual meets) is coming off a solid showing last weekend at the Colorado Mesa Invitational. The ThunderWolves reached the finals in seven different events. April McDonough (Fr., Frisco, Texas) had the top finish for the Pack, placing third in the 1000 free with a career-best time of 10:47.09.

In addition to McDonough, seven other swimmers recorded season-best times at the Colorado Mesa Invitational, including Samantha Sannes (Fr., Torrance, Calif.), Sydney Anderson (Fr., Garden Grove, Calif.), Magdalena Contreras-Gomez (Fr., Austin, Texas), Emily Foster (Jr., Santa Barbara, Calif.), Kayla Strohmeyer (Fr., Round Rock, Texas), Taylor Wertz (Fr., Lamar Colo.) and Leila Zijadic (Fr., North Vancouver, B.C., Canada).

McDonough paces the Pack in event victories with eight. The freshman has three first-place finishes in both the 100 and 200 free and one win in both the 1000 and 500 free.

Sannes is second on the team in wins with five, placing first in the 1000 free twice and once in the 400 individual medley, 200 individual medley and 1650 free.

Anderson (100 back), Contreras-Gomez (100 fly) and Foster (100 breast) each have one win on the season.

Looking ahead
The Pack will take a three-week break over the Christmas holiday, before returning to the pool Jan. 3 at the Citrus Classic in Mesa, Ariz.
