LARAMIE — University of Wyoming volleyball student-athlete Jackie McBride made history Wednesday morning when she was announced as the league’s first-ever, five-time member of the All-Mountain West team.

McBride, who was granted an extra year of eligibility this season by the NCAA because of the COVID-19 pandemic, was the eighth student-athlete in league history and second-ever in Wyoming program history to be a four-time honoree following the previous season.

This season, McBride finished third in the conference during MW play with a .383 hitting percentage. She tallied 145 kills during league play, had a team-high 55 blocks and averaged 2.74 points per set. McBride was also one of just three Cowgirls to appear in all 68 sets during MW play this season.

McBride, who closed out record-breaking career last weekend at Utah State, also fills the UW record books. She is the program’s all-time leader in career sets played with 502, finished third with a career hitting percentage of .338, fifth with 549 career blocks and ninth with 1,085 career kills.
