Wyoming (16-9, 7-3 MW) finished the regular season with a 4-2 victory on the road at Colorado State last week. After dropping the doubles point to the Rams, the Cowgirls rallied to win 4-of-5 completed singles matches on the day to come away with some end-of-season momentum.

UW got wins at the No. 1, 3, 4 and 5 singles spots in the victory.

With her win at No. 1, Sophie Zehender is now tied for the team-lead with 17 dual wins in 2024 and finishes the season 8-2 in conference play, which leads the Cowgirls. Violetta Borodina (No. 3), Jeselle Ante (No. 4) and Nikol Dobrilova (No. 5) got the other singles victories for Wyoming.

Ante was named the league’s Freshman of the Week Monday behind the strength of her 6-1, 6-3 win. Ante and her doubles partner, Lucia Malinak, got UW’s lone doubles win against CSU as well. It marked the first time this season that a Cowgirl has received a weekly honor.

This week will be the 11th trip to the Mountain West Tournament for the Cowgirls under Head Coach Dean Clower. Wyoming has won at least one match at the MW Championship nine of the 10 previous trips under Clower.

University of Wyoming’s Top 50 Football Players

During the summer of 2021, 7220Sports.com counted down the Top 50 football players in University of Wyoming history, presented by Premier Bone & Joint Centers, Worthy of Wyoming.

The rules are simple: What was the player's impact while in Laramie? That means NFL stats, draft status or any other accolade earned outside of UW is irrelevant when it comes to this list.

This isn't a one-man job. This task called for a panel of experts. Joining 7220's Cody Tucker are Robert GagliardiJared NewlandRyan Thorburn, and Kevin McKinney.

We all compiled our own list of 50 and let computer averages do the work. Think BCS -- only we hope this catalog is fairer.
