April 29, 2010

LARAMIE, Wyo. -

The spring season for the Wyoming Cowgirl soccer team came to a close last weekend with the annual alumni game and awards banquet in Laramie. The Cowgirls ended the spring season with a record of 4-0-6. During the ten games played, the Cowgirls shutout every opponent they were matched up against.

Spring opponents included home games against Northern Colorado, Regis, Westminster College (Utah), Metro State and Colorado School of Mines. Away matches for the Cowgirls were against Denver, Colorado School of Mines, Fort Lewis, Air Force and Northern Colorado.

"We feel that we made some nice strides this spring," said head coach Danny Sanchez. "Although we would have liked to score more goals, we are pleased that we allowed no goals all spring. The team worked very hard and brought a commitment to improve every day. The team is very excited for our upcoming trip to Europe as it will allow us to continue to develop as individuals and as a team."

The Cowgirl squad will travel to Europe from May 10 to May 19. Wyoming will play two matches in Holland and two in England. A schedule of the trip will be released soon followed by a recap of the trip. Cowgirl fans can follow the European trip at www.wyosoccer.blogspot.com as the team will be blogging daily.
