Spring is in the air and the Wyoming Cowgirl Soccer team is chomping at the bit to start working toward a Mountain West Conference Championship with new head coach Danny Sanchez.

The Cowgirls began practice earlier this month and will kick off their spring schedule this weekend as they head to Provo, Utah to compete in the BYU Indoor Tournament on Saturday, Feb. 23. Utah Valley State, Weber State and MWC rival BYU will participate in this year's tournament. The Cowgirls will begin action at 1:30 p.m. and play three straight games.

"We are excited to get out there and play some great competition," Sanchez said. "This will be a good opportunity to see our players in a competitive atmosphere."

Wyoming returns eight starters including MWC Co-Offensive Player of the Year Tamika Wilson and Second Team All-Conference selection Amanda Lathrop.

The Cowgirls will be hosting an indoor tournament the first weekend in March in the brand new, state-of-the-art indoor facility that was just finished last fall adjacent to the Rochelle Athletics Center.

"I look forward to seeing what our players are capable of," Sanchez continued. "There are several NCAA Tournament teams on our schedule and they will give us a good idea on where we stand this early in the year."

The Cowgirls will also be hosting a free clinic Saturday, March 1 from 4-5:30 p.m. in the University of Wyoming Indoor Facility. All kids 8th graders and under are welcome to participate.
