TCU to Face 5 Ranked Teams in Florida
April 6, 2017
FORT WORTH, Texas -- The TCU beach volleyball team will take its 13-7 record on the road Friday and Saturday at the Staybridge Suites Invitational hosted by Florida State where the Horned Frogs will face five ranked teams.
In additional to the No. 4 host Seminoles (15-6), the Horned Frogs will square off with No. 10 Georgia State (14-9), No. 11 South Carolina (15-5), No. 13 Florida International (17-8) and No. 14 Florida Atlantic (18-5).
The Horned Frogs are no strangers to playing ranked teams as they have notched wins over No. 15 Arizona State and then-No. 15 Cal Poly.
TCU enters the two-day event on a five-match winning streak dating back to the final match of the Irvine Valley College Tournament March 26. Last week, the Horned Frogs captured wins over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Houston Baptist, Central Arkansas and ULM en route to winning the ULM Bayou Beach Bash in Monroe, Louisiana.
This weekend's tournament will be the second-to-last regular-season tournament for the Frogs, who will travel to the TAMU-CC tournament at the end of the month to close out the regular season.
On Friday, the Horned Frogs take on Georgia State (7:30 a.m. CT) followed by Florida International (12 p.m.) and Florida State (3 p.m.). TCU closes out the tournament Saturday with South Carolina (8:30 a.m.) Florida Atlantic (11:30 a.m).
Since joining up at the Irvine Valley College Tournament, Jillian Bergeson and Shane Peters are 5-2, and Claire Doyle and Bridget Odmark, who also teamed up for the first time at the IVC tournament, are also 5-2.
A recap of all the weekend matches will be available on GoFrogs.com, following the completion of the competitions each day. The matches can also be followed on Twitter @TCUBeachVB.
