FORT WORTH - TCU's women's volleyball team picked up its fourth-straight sweep win Saturday, a 3-0 (25-23, 25-23, 25-22) decision over Texas A&M Corpus Christi inside the TCU University Rec Center.

The Horned Frogs improved to 4-1 with the win, while Texas A&M Corpus Christi dropped to 4-2. TCU put itself in position to capture the TCU Nike Invitational with a win Saturday evening over Army.

For the second-straight night, TCU raced out to an early lead in the first set and led 7-4 after a Mattie Burleson kill. The Islanders were able to get back into the set and tied it at 15, but an attack error followed by back-to-back Megan Munce aces forced a TAMUCC timeout with the Frogs leading 18-15.

The Islanders were able to tie the match on two more occasions in the set before Yvonne Igodan's kill wrapped up a 25-22 set one win for the Frogs. She had five kills on eight attacks in the set.

The second set was equally as competitive as the Islanders refused to go away even after trailing 17-12 when TCU put together a 5-0 run, highlight by two Meghan Horio aces. Sloane Sunstrum's kill on the set's final point gave TCU a 2-0 lead with the 25-23 set win.

After the break, TCU found itself in an early 11-6 hole and was forced to take a timeout. The halt provided the spark the Frogs needed as they scored six of the match's next eight points. Back-to-back Igodan kills and a Munce block brought the Frogs within one.

TAMUCC stretched its lead to 18-15, but four-straight points put the Frogs on top for good. The Islanders got within one at 23-22, but Igodan's 15th and final kill of the match, followed by an Islander attack error polished off the 25-22 set three win and 3-0 triumph in the match.

Igodan, who took over the Big 12 lead in attack percentage last night, tallied a .538 attack percentage with 15 kills and one error on 26 attempts. Freshman Macy Capen turned in her second-straight solid offensive performance (five kills on nine attempts).

Defensively, Horio led the Frogs with 14 digs and scored three points on aces. Munce had seven digs to go along with four kills and two aces.

TCU concludes play at the TCU Nike Invitational this evening when it plays host to Army. First serve is set for 7 p.m.
