Wyoming Volleyball Tries to Keep Its Momentum [VIDEO]
Riding a three-match winning streak the Wyoming Cowgirls return home for two matches in the Uni-Wyo Sports Complex this weekend.
Wyoming (9-9, 4-2) picked up huge road wins at Utah State and Boise State last weekend. The Cowgirls swept the Aggies, and then they won in Boise, ID for the first time since 1994 in a tough five-set match. Freshman setter Marissa Harmon was named the Mountain West Offensive Player of the Week for her efforts in both matches.
The current win streak has vaulted UW into a three-way tie for second place in the MW volleyball standings.
Now it’s on to their next set of challenges, as the Cowgirls will host Nevada Thursday at 6:30 p.m. followed by San Jose State at 1 p.m. Saturday.
Wyoming head coach Chad Callihan discusses their improvements since a disappointing match versus Colorado State back on Sept. 26, the confidence his squad has gained and freshman Marissa Harmon earning MW Offensive Player of the Week honors.
The Cowgirls have lost three of their last four matches against the Wolfpack, which included both last season. By contrast, they have won three in a row over the Spartans, including both last year. San Jose State is one of the teams tied in the conference standings with UW, while the Wolfpack are 3-3 in the MW.
Wyoming will head on the road for their next three matches after this weekend.
