PUEBLO, Colo. - (GoThunderWolves.com - April 3, 2014) - Junior second baseman Alexa Snyder (Pueblo, Colo.) broke CSU-Pueblo's all-time career record for stolen bases swiping her 69th on Sunday against Regis in a game played in Grand Junction, Colo.
In the fourth inning of the final game of the weekend, Snyder reached base on an error in the infield and took advantage, snagging her fourth stolen base of the weekend, the final being the one that topped former Pack standout Janine Tyler, who had previously recorded 68 stolen bases from 2007-09.
"Alexa has been a leader in the two years that I have coached her," said Pack head coach Christie Zinanti. "She always works hard and continues to help her teammates get better."
"Alexa had the unfortunate setback at the end of last season, suffering an ACL injury in mid-April with two weeks left in the season. Its scary to think how many more stolen bases she could have gotten last season."
The current team leader in stolen bases, Snyder has swiped 14-of-15 bases so far this season, placing her fifth in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
With still one month left in the 2014 regular season and a full senior season ahead, Snyder will build on the record in helping leave her mark as one of the top CSU-Pueblo softball players of all time.
Snyder, the 5-foot-5 junior second baseman also has done well in the classroom, majoring in nursing.
