LARAMIE, Wyo. (Aug. 21, 2014) – Second year head coach Chad Callihan and the Wyoming Cowgirl Volleyball Team will conclude preseason drills with the Brown and Gold scrimmage, on Friday, Aug. 23.
The match is set to begin at 7:00 p.m. in the UniWyo Sports Complex. It is open to the public. The Cowgirls have been conducting practices alternating between one or two a day over the past two weeks.
Callihan welcomes back four starters and nine letterwinners to this year’s squad that finished 21-13 overall and 11-9 in the Mountain West a year ago.
