Wildt's Word: The following are quotes from University of Wyoming head
women's tennis coach Pam Wildt after the Cowgirls' 5-2 dual loss to
Denver: "You could tell it was our first match of the spring. Denver
had some big, aggressive girls and they were match-tough. We've only
had about a week of practice since the break, and it was apparent. But
this is our starting point and we're only going to improve from here."
