Evanston grad Erin Kirby, a redshirt freshman middle-blocker for the University of Wyoming volleyball team, has been named to the 2011 Mountain West Conference All-Conference Team.

She has helped the Cowgirls to a 20-10 overall record thus far, and helped UW obtain the #4 seed in the upcoming MWC tournament. She leads the team in total blocks with 136, and is 2nd on the team in attack percentage (.314).

During her high school days, she was a 2-time all-conference and all-state selection and was the 2009 Wyoming 4A Player of the Year.

It's her 2nd all-MWC honor for the 2011 calendar year. She also won the 400-meter hurdle title back in May at the MWC Outdoor Track and Field Championships.
