Colorado State University Pueblo proudly announces the results of the Hasan School of Business CyberWolves in the nationwide NCL (National Cyber League) Cyber Games and Individual competitions. This online competition, which ran from Friday, November 4, through Sunday, November 7, included Research 1 (R1) and Division 1 (D1) competitors.

The CSU Pueblo CyberWolves included 5 teams, comprised of 29 players, including 5 women. The teams also had 30% participation from underrepresented student groups or minorities. Of these students, 2 players competed in the 2022 Individual Competition, placing in the top 150 positions, out of 3,500 competitors. Kevin Shu, and Luis Irizarry, placed 15th and 117th, respectively.

Dr. Roberto Mejias, Head CSU Pueblo NCL Coach, Associate Professor of Computer Science Information Systems (CIS) and Director, Center for Cyber Security Education and Research (CCSER), stated, “We have a scrappy and hardworking core of CSU Pueblo students who have been outscoring big R1 and D1 universities with well-funded Cyber-Security programs. And, our CSU Pueblo students are thrilled to be outranking these big schools, year after year, on the NCL National Team Leader Board.” CSU Pueblo’s CyberWolves have ranked among the top 2% of national teams for the past several years.

This year’s teams continued that trend, resulting in the Cyberwolves placing 24th out of over 3,000 teams. CSU Pueblo is currently ranked in the top 1% of participating schools in the nation. Dr. Mejias attributes the continued success to CSU Pueblo’s recent re-designation as an NSA-CAE institution (U.S. National Security agency-Center for Academic Excellence). This national ranking brings with it the hopes of attracting more STEM-related students, particularly in the underrepresented areas of minorities and women. This continued endorsement will keep enrollment numbers up at the university’s Hasan School of Business.

Please join us in extending a huge congratulations to our CSU Pueblo CyberWolves!
