LARAMIE, Wyo. -- The Wyoming volleyball team is fifth in the Mountain West Conference preseason volleyball poll.
Defending league-champion Colorado State is the favorite, followed by New Mexico, Utah State and San Diego State.
UW senior Erin Kirby was picked to the preseason all-conference team for the first time. The three-time all-Mountain West selection led the league in blocking last season while finishing ranked second in the country in that category.
New Mexico senior Chantale Riddle was named the 2013 MW Preseason Player of the Year.
