Colorado State University Pueblo Women’s Lacrosse 2023 spring season is in full swing. The Thunderwolves had their home opener on Wed., March 8, at the Art and Lorraine Gonzales Stadium. After ending last season 3-13, the Tunderwolves are driven to perform well this season. 

The Thunderwolves had a fantastic first game against the Lewis University Flyers. Although they did not win, they kept the score close with a final score of 14-12. Several star players played a part in this score. Elise Magee and Kate Broom had three goals of their own for the Thunderwolves, alongside Sedona Sargent with two, and Caira Lessick, Baylee Mee, Kate Schimpf, and Parker Delp with one. 

Not only did the Thuderwolves have a great offense, but their defense got a bit rowdy, earning them three yellow cards. When a player is presented with a yellow card, it results in a 2-minute penalty in the penalty box. 

Caira Lessick earned one yellow card in the 1st period, and Sedona Sargent earned two in the 4th period. The Lewis University Flyers also were given three yellow cards, one in the 1st period, one in the 2nd, and one in the 4th. 

The Thunderwolves hit the road the next two games, playing the Westminster Griffins in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colo. Unfortunately, the Thunderwolves did not win either.

On Fri., March 10, the Thunderwolves faced the Westminster Griffins scoring 18 goals and had a final score of 21-18. Baylee Mee, Sedona Sragent, and Parker Delp each scored four goals of their own. 

On Sun., March 12, the Thunderwolves returned to Colorado, where they faced Colorado Mesa University. The Mavericks had a blowout over the Thunderwolves with a final score of 20-5. Baylee Mee, Sedona Sargent, Kate Broom, Kate Schimpf, and Elise Magee each scored a goal.

The Thunderwolves are 0-3; however, it is early on in the season, and they still have time to improve.
