Mary F. Shea

Volleyball, 1980-83

Mary Shea, a four-year volleyball starter as an outside hitter, is considered one of the most dynamic and popular athletes ever to play at UW. Shea shattered virtually every cowgirl record, and her devastating hitting ability easily made her a crowd favorite. As a senior, Shea’s tremendous leaping ability helped her tally a record 486 kills, and she led Wyoming to a 27-win season. She gained first team All-High Country Athletic Conference honors in 1982 and 1983 and earned U.S. Volleyball Association honors as a senior.
