Wyoming's Marissa Harmon was named Mountain West Freshman of the Year, while sophomore Tara Traphagan and redshirt freshman Jackie McBride both received All-Mountain West honors, the conference announced on Monday. Harmon was also named to the honorable mention all-conference team.

It is the first time ever that three Cowgirls earned all-conference recognition, and Harmon is the first Cowgirl to earn Freshman of the Year since Reed Copeland in 2015. This is the seventh consecutive season that Wyoming has had at least two players named all-conference.

Harmon is the fourth Cowgirl to earn Freshman of the Year after playing in all 112 sets and dishing out 1,070 assists this season. Her 10.60 assists per set during the conference season was third-best in the Mountain West.

Traphagan led the Cowgirls with 307 kills this season. She also played in all 112 sets and was third on the team with 105 total blocks.

McBride, one of six middle blockers to be named all-conference, finished fourth in hitting percentage (.346) in conference play. She led the Cowgirls with 123 blocks and added 205 kills.
