Volleyball Drops Fifth Straight
FORT WORTH, Texas (Oct. 28) - A 3-2 loss to Nevada on homecoming night proved to be the TCU volleyball teams' fourth consecutive conference loss and fifth overall. The Frogs fall to 12-14 (4-6 WAC) while Nevada pushes its record over the .500 mark at 11-10 (8-3 WAC).
TCU's offense struggled out of the gate as they hit just .132 in game one and .000 in game two, dropping both games 15-12 and 15-2. The Frogs got it going after the break as they took games three and four 15-10, 15-5 and tied the match at two games apiece. However, the Frogs could not carry the momentum into game five as they committed six attack errors and dropped the deciding game five 15-9.
"I was very happy with the way we played in games three and four," said head coach Sandy Troudt. "But, I was very disappointed we didn't carry the momentum over to game five. Unfortunately, we came out very flat in game five."
Amy Atamanczuk led the Frogs with 17 kills and 17 digs and picked up her 13th double-double of the season. Marci King added 12 kills and 11 digs for her 14 double-double of the season. Allison Lynch tied a career high with 11 total blocks while Stephanie Watson set a new season high with 11 kills.
"Stephanie Watson gave us a huge lift off the bench and played one of her best games as a Horned Frog," said Troudt. "I was really excited to see Amy bounce back in games three and four after she got off to a slow start."
TCU hits it light this week as they play just one match on Saturday night (Nov. 3) against Tulsa. Following their match with Tulsa the Frogs will play four consecutive on the road before coming back home for their final two matches.
