She leads Wyoming in goals with three, and also is the team leader in shots with 15 on the season. Cowgirls Laurel Ramer, Kimmy Burbank and Alyssa Murray have also notched goals for UW.

The Jayhawks will come into Laramie with a 2-3-1 record. They have wins over SMU and North Texas. Last season, Wyoming lost to Kansas 3-1 in Lawrence, Kan. KU holds a 3-1-0 all-time record against the Cowgirls.
