March 19, 2019

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Cowgirls will host Northern Colorado at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the first round of the Women’s National Invitation Tournament.

It is the second time in program history the Cowgirls have participated in a postseason tournament in three consecutive years, joining the 2006-08 squads.

The Cowgirls are currently 22-8 overall. The 22 win season continues a streak of three-consecutive seasons of at least 20 wins.

This year’s WNIT appearance by the Cowgirls will mark the ninth postseason tournament berth in coach Joe Legerski’s 16 seasons at Wyoming.

Wyoming will be playing in the WNIT for the eighth time during Legerski’s tenure.
