University of Wyoming tennis wins first conference title in team history
Cowgirls dismantle Air Force, New Mexico to clinch the first seed in Mountain West tournament
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The first one’s always the sweetest.
The UW Cowgirls clinched the tennis program’s first Mountain West title in school history last weekend after beating Air Force on Friday, 4-2, and rolling through New Mexico on Saturday, 4-0, in Fort Collins.
There hasn’t been a wealth of athletic achievements to cheer on in Laramie this year but Cowgirls’ tennis has changed that headline and they’re hunting for more. Next stop: Las Vegas.
UW is the #1 overall seed in the Mountain West Tennis Championships set to take place this week in Las Vegas. The Cowgirls have a first round bye and will take on the winner of the 8-9 matchup, either San Jose State or New Mexico, Thursday at 11 a.m.
They closed out the regular season with a record of 14-9 overall and 9-1 in the Mountain West.
The Cowgirls are ranked 75th nationally capturing victories against then-no. 42 Colorado State and no. 67 Fresno State. This was their first appearance in the top 75 since 2015.
