Laramie, Wyo – The University of Wyoming Cowgirl volleyball team made quick work of Nevada on Thursday night inside the UniWyo Sports Complex. UW used a 3-0 (25-18, 25-22, 25-19) sweep to extend its Mountain West winning streak to four matches. The Cowgirls (10-9, 5-2 MW) have now also won seven of their last nine matches.

Traphagan also added four blocks, while Lewis had two. Sophomore Halie McArdle recorded nine kills and three digs against the Wolf Pack, as junior Reed Copeland chipped in five kills with a match-high eight total blocks. Copeland is now sixth all-time in program history with 422 career blocks. She is inching towards former teammate Laura Beach who sits in fifth-place with 438 blocks.
