Cowgirl Volleyball Continues Hot Streak
Make it four consecutive wins for the Wyoming Cowgirls on the volleyball court. They swept Utah State on the road last Saturday night.
It marks the second year in a row the Cowgirls have started 3-0 in Mountain West play.
Scores of the match went 25-23, 25-20 and 32-30.
Head coach Chad Callihan said in a release from the University of Wyoming,
“I’m really proud of these girls for getting a win on the road against a very solid Utah State team. I thought we executed well at times, but played hard all night which then allowed us to grind out and get a few key points throughout the night.”
Wyoming (10-6, 3-0) was led by senior Kayla Slofkiss. She had a season-high 15 kills. Laura Beach contributed 13 kills. Freshman Madi Fields tied a career-high with 16 digs.
The Cowgirls return to action Thursday and Saturday on the road. They play at UNLV on Thursday and at New Mexico Saturday.
The Wyoming Cowgirls split their MW home matches last weekend at the Louis S. Madrid Sports Complex.
Wyoming lost to UNLV 3-1 last Friday. Their only goal came from freshman Brooklynn Mooney. It was the first of her career.
The Cowgirl bounced back with a 2-0 shutout of Nevada on Sunday. UW scored twice in the first six minutes of the match. Junior Alisha Bass and freshman Michaela Stark found the back of the net.
Wyoming (5-6-1, 1-3) will host Air Force Friday and Colorado College on Sunday.
Wyoming came in fifth place at their own Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate in Palm Desert, CA Sunday.
The Cowgirls finished with a 906 total (+42) over the 54-hole tournament. Santa Clara won the team crown at 882 (+18).
Three Wyoming golfers placed in the top-25. Senior Mackenzie Barrie posted her first top-25 of her senior season with a three-round score of 224 (+8). That tied for 15th place. Freshman Erin Sargent tied for 20th, at 11-over par (227). Junior Gabrielle Gibson was at 13-over and tied for 24.
The Cowgirls conclude the fall portion of their season Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Denver Ron Moore Intercollegiate.
