The Cowgirls will look to build off a 2018 season that saw UW post a 20-11 record, finish second in the Mountain West and compete in the postseason for the second-consecutive season. Wyoming returns nine players from that 2018 squad, including all-Mountain West selection Jackie McBride.

Colorado is receiving votes in the AVCA preseason poll, and come into tonight’s matchup looking to build on an impressive 2018 season in which they finished 18-14 overall with a 10-10 record in Pac-12 play. Colorado advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the 20th time in program history last season.

The Cowgirls will host LIU on Monday, September 2, in the UniWyo Sports Complex at 6:30 p.m., in Wyoming’s home opener.
