Former Lady Bronc and Cowgirl Junior Kayla Woodward was selected at the preseason conference player of the year.
Voting came from the conference's coaches and selected women's basketball media.
It's the highest preseason selection for the Cowgirls since the 2007-08 season. Fresno state won the league tournament last spring and was installed as the preseason favorite.
The cowgirls open their exhibition season in Sheridan November 8th when they play Northern Montana in the Hoffman dome at Sheridan college.
