Cowgirls Begin Spring Practice

March 25, 2003

LARAMIE, Wyo. -

Second year head coach Jim Barnes and the University of Wyoming Cowgirl volleyball team opened up spring practice this week. They return all six starters and 12 letterwinners from the 2002 squad.

Practices will run every day from 3:00-6:00 p.m., except for Wednesday which will be an off day. All practices are open.

"A majority of our spring will be developing our defensive game," said Barnes. "The attitudes of the kids are great and they're very serious about making this team better and competing for a conference title."

The Cowgirls will participate in three spring tournaments starting this weekend at Northern Colorado in Greeley.
