PUEBLO – Chianna Schoenthaler was crowned the 2017 Homecoming Royal during the 2017 Homecoming activities at Colorado State University-Pueblo, Oct. 5 to Oct. 8. Schoenthaler, Strasburg, Colo., a senior Mass Communications major, was presented with a crown and cape during halftime of the ThunderWolves 63-17 victory over Adams State in the Neta and Eddie DeRose ThunderBowl.
