Cowgirl Tennis Set to Begin Spring Season

January 26, 1999

LARAMIE, Wyo. -

The University of Wyoming women's tennis team will resume their season this Saturday, January 30, when they travel to Boulder, Colorado, for a dual match with the 27th ranked Colorado Buffaloes.

The Cowgirls and the Buffaloes are very familiar with each other as they both competed this past fall in the CU Invite, with CU winning seven of ten head-to-head singles matches between the two schools and UW winning two of three doubles matches.

Wyoming and Colorado last met in a dual match February 8, 1998, at the Lobo Invitational in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Colorado did not lose a set to the Cowgirls, as the Buffs cruised to a 8-0 victory.

"The team is really excited to begin the season," said head coach Kilmeny Waterman. "We have a lot more experience than we've ever had and they are feeling, as I am, that we can compete with anyone.

"We are pretty even, as far as talent goes, in the top positions this spring, so I think that I will be mixing people around more than I ever have before. We've never really had the ability to do that before, so now I'll be able to look at matchups and then decide who will play at what position.

"The Colorado match will probably be our toughest this season, and just happens to be our first match of the spring. But, I think we're ready. Regardless of who CU plays at what position, they'll still be very tough because they are so deep."
