Cowgirl Countdown: 4 Days - Lily Austin

The season is quickly approaching and the University of Wyoming Cowgirl volleyball team officially gets everything rolling by taking on No. 20 Purdue on Friday at 8 a.m., MT. UW will also face off with No. 24 Kentucky and Washington State at the Purdue Motor Board Premier.

Lily Austin, who wears No. 4 for the brown and gold, will begin her junior season this fall. She has played in every match since she made the move to Laramie. The Idaho native recorded double-figure digs in five separate matches a year ago with a season high of 15 against both Idaho State and UNLV.
