Cowgirl Countdown: 6 Days - Laura Beach

This time next week, the Cowgirls will be prepping for day two of the Purdue Mortar Board Premier. UW opens the season against No. 20 Purdue, before taking on No. 24 Kentucky and Pac-12 member Washington State next weekend.

Laura Beach will enter her senior year as the all-time leader in hitting percentage (.360) for UW volleyball, and also a two-time All-MW selection. Additionally, she was selected as a member of the 2016 Preseason All-MW team. Beach wears No. 6 Wyoming and will complete her final season in Laramie this fall. She has started every match the past two seasons, and led Wyoming in kills in eight matches a year ago. She was third on the team with 2.35 kills per set and second with 1.10 blocks per set during her junior campaign.
