LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The Wyoming Cowgirl Soccer team will play their first ever televised game on Sunday against Utah in Salt Lake City. The game will be broadcast on The Mountain Network at 1 p.m. In addition to multiple cable networks nation-wide, The Mtn is broadcast nationally on Direct TV, channel 616.
"Its a great opportunity to play on TV. It will be nice to get out team exposure," said UW head coach Danny Sanchez. "Utah is a good team and it will be a tough test, but we are excited for it."
The Cowgirls have a record of 8-8-1 and 2-3 in the MWC. Leading the way for the Cowgirls is senior Amanda Lathrop. Lathrop leads the team in goals, assist and points. She needs only two more points to have the most individual points by a Cowgirl in a single season.
In his seventh season, Utah head coach Rich Manning has his team at 3-2 in the MWC and 7-8-2 overall. This past weekend the Utes had two road games and defeated New Mexico 1-0, and lost to TCU 2-0. Senior Katy Reineke leads the MWC in shots, while junior Kelly Isleib has the most goals on the team with seven.
The Cowgirls will come back to Laramie to play their final home game of the season next weekend against BYU. The game will also be "Senior Day" for six Cowgirls. The game is scheduled for Saturday, November 1, at 11 a.m.
