Cowgirl Soccer Closes Out Spring Play
April 29, 2003
LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The University of Wyoming Cowgirl soccer team closed out their spring schedule with competition at the Air Force Academy last Saturday. The Cowgirls went 1-0-2 for the tournament closing out their spring record with an 5-1-4 record.
UW's only victory of the weekend came against Colorado College by a score of 1-0. Renee Minero scored the lone goal for the Cowgirls. In their next two games the Cowgirls, along with their opponents Colorado Christian and Air Force, were unable to put the ball in the net. Both games resulted in a 0-0 tie. The Cowgirl defense highlighted the weekend, as well as the spring season, by shutting out their opponents in the final eight games of the spring season.
"Overall the team has become a better unit this spring," said Cowgirl soccer head coach Ann Moore. "The girls are playing better than they ever have, and individually we are getting more confident which carries over to helping the team compete at a higher level."
"The upperclassmen have worked very hard to finish out their careers successfully. We are so much more confident than we were last season at this time. This fall is going to be very exciting. Our program is making big strides and with hard work and the dedication of these girls we are going to continue to get better."
The Cowgirls open up the 2003 season with an exhibition game against Regis
University Aug. 21 at the UW Soccer Stadium in Laramie. The contest is
slated for 4:00 p.m.
