University of Wyoming's Jackie McBride and Kaitlyn Gehler were named the Mountain West volleyball players of the week on Monday.
McBride, a senior middle blocker, received the offensive honors after totaling 20 kills, 10 blocks and finishing with a .600 hitting percentage in the Cowgirls' two 3-0 home victories over New Mexico.
Gehler, a junior libero, had 29 digs in the two matches to pace the UW back row that held the Lobos to a .000 hitting percentage.
The Cowgirls (4-0) return to action this weekend with a two-game series at Boise State.
