Melissa Bowman, Sr, Mid, Sherbrooke, Quebec (John Abbott College)

Senior Melissa Bowman

Melissa Bowman, a senior from came to Wyoming via Canada and John Abbott College, came up huge in her final game at home for the University of Wyoming Cowgirl Soccer team. Bowman, a midfielder, had two goals against the University of New Mexico. The two goals came a little over a minute apart and helped the Cowgirls put down the Lobos 5-1. Bowman on the season has four goals and one assist. Her goal stats are good enough for 8th in the Mountain West Conference and she is 10th in goals per game (.21 per game). Before the season, Bowman was ranked fourth on the career assists list with four. Bowman and the Cowgirls concluded their season on Wednesday, losing 1-0 to Utah in the MWC Tournament.

Amy Doman, S, 5-9, Sr., Brentwood, Tenn. (Brentwood HS)

Senior Amy Doman

Amy Doman, a senior from Brentwood, Tennessee, is having a great year for the University of Wyoming Cowgirl Volleyball team. The senior setter has played a large role for the very young Cowgirl team. Trying to provide as much leadership as possible while trying to lead the Cowgirls to wins, Doman has enjoyed her best season ever as a Cowgirl in several categories. Doman currently sits second on UW's all-time list in assists with 4,700. She only needs 68 more to take over the top spot or 67 to tie. She has set career highs in several categories also this season. Doman has the highest hitting percentage of her career this season, she should also have the most assists she's ever had in a season by the end of this year, and is averaging the most assists per game in her career. Doman also established several career game highs this season in hitting percentage (.833 against UMKC), assists (71 against South Dakota State), block assists, and total blocks(both block highs came against Idaho State when she recorded 5). In the Mountain West Conference, Doman ranks second in assists per game in all matches and in conference play at 13.34 and 13.23 respectively. She has the most total season assists in the MWC. Doman plays her final home game as a Cowgirl this Friday against rival Colorado State.

Corey Bramlet, QB, 6-4, 215, Jr., 2L, Wheatland, Wyo. (Wheatland)

Junior Corey Bramlet

Corey Bramlet, a junior quarterback from Wheatland, played the best game of his young career against the Air Force Falcons last week. At times during the season Bramlet has struggled, however, none of the mistakes that he had shown a tendency towards were an issue against Air Force. Bramlet fired on all cylinders, which allowed the Cowboys to pick up a much needed win after faltering the last two weeks. During the game against Air Force, Bramlet accounted for 323 yards of total offense. He threw for 256 yards and two touchdowns, both tying career highs, and he also rushed for 67 yards. Bramlet currently ranks third in the Mountain West Conference and 42nd nationally in total offense at 223.9 yards per game. He also is ranked 39th in the NCAA with 17.3 completions per game. Even with the difficulty of following his older brother Casey at quarterback, the younger Bramlet is growing into his own mold and is trying to help the Cowboys get to a bowl game for the first time since 1993. The Cowboys and Bramlet look to build upon the win from last week with another win this week when they travel to Las Vegas to take on UNLV on Saturday.

Guy Tuell, LB, 6-1, 215, Sr., 3L, Yuma, Colo. (Yuma)

Senior Guy Tuell

Guy Tuell, a senior linebacker from Yuma, Colorado, has been extremely consistent on defense this season for the University of Wyoming Cowboys. Tuell has been the mainstay in the linebacking corps, with other members of the Cowboy defense succumbing to injury at one time or another this season. One need only to look at his streak of 16 consecutive games started at linebacker and 38 out the last 39 started at either safety or linebacker to see his consistency for the Cowboy defense the past few seasons. The senior captain is currently second on the team in tackles with 54, which also places him in the top 20 in the Mountain West Conference (currently 19th with 30 solo and 24 assisted, 7.5 of those tackles for a loss). He also has one interception, one forced fumble, and one safety that came a key moment in the Air Force game, helping give UW momentum for the next drive. The Cowboys never looked back after the big play from Tuell and won the game 43-26. Tuell and the rest of the Cowboys travel to a much warmer climate this weekend when they go to Las Vegas to take on the UNLV Running Rebels.
