The Cowgirls will host a total of 12 home dates in 2024, including nine Mountain West matches and a non-conference tournament, the UniWyo Invitational, Sept. 19-21. Wyoming will welcome Coppin State, Albany and Utah for the home tournament.

UW, which won 20 matches last season for the first time since 2019, is coming off its first national postseason appearance since that 2019 campaign, as well, as it advanced to the Super 16 round of the NIVC in 2023.

The Cowgirls posted a 22-10 mark a season ago and began the season with a program-record 11 consecutive wins to begin a season.

Wyoming returns a pair of 2023 All-Mountain West performers in Kasia Partyka and Rylee Schulz this season. Partyka led the conference in assists in 2023 with 10.74 per set and ranked her 1,299 total assists last season ranked 12th in the nation and was the seventh-most for a single season in program history.

Schulz, meanwhile, who was an honorable mention selection last season, was fifth in the league in kills per set (3.28) and ninth in points per (3.77).

Conference play for UW opens Sept. 26 with a weekend trip beginning with Nevada before traveling to face defending league-champion Utah State Sept. 28. The Cowgirls host their Mountain West home-opener Oct. 3 and 5 against Fresno State and San Jose State, respectively.

The Cowgirls report to camp Aug. 7.
