November 18, 1998

LARAMIE, Wyo. -

Liza Grant, who has directed the Wyoming Cowgirl soccer program since its inception in 1995, has resigned to pursue other interests, according to UW Athletics Director Lee Moon.

Moon said a national search has begun, and that he hopes to hire a replacement as soon as possible.

"We want to thank Liza for all her efforts in getting our soccer program started here at Wyoming," said Moon. "She dedicated the past four years to getting this program off the ground, and we will always be grateful for that dedication. We wish her all the best in the future."

Grant came to Wyoming, from the University of Washington where she had coached for two seasons. She began her coaching career at Colorado College in 1986.

"This has been an exciting opportunity to start a program," said Grant. "With the last couple of recruiting classes that weve brought in, weve a put a sound base in place.

"I feel that this is the best thing for myself and for the program. Ive always wanted the best for the players, and I wish them the best of luck. I also want to thank the University of Wyoming for the opportunity I was given."

A native of Denver, Grant played for Colorado College (Colorado Springs) from 1982 through 1985. She graduated from there in 1986 with a degree in mathematics. She lettered in both soccer and lacrosse.
