Volleyball Set for Spring Season


Jan. 29, 2016


FORT WORTH, Texas – The TCU volleyball team will get a jump-start on the spring season by opening with competition in San Antonio, Texas on Sunday, Jan. 31 at the Blossom Athletic Center.

The Horned Frogs will compete again two other Texas programs, Houston Baptist and Texas A&M Corpus Christi, this weekend. TCU will face the Huskies on Sunday at Noon before taking on the Islanders at 4 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the door and are $3 for ages 18 and under and $5 for ages 19 and up.

“With the addition of our beach volleyball program, we decided to move our competitive spring season to January and February,” Director of Volleyball Jill Kramer said. “This will allow all of our indoor players to train indoor and on the sand. We will have our first competition on Sunday playing two other teams in Texas that also have beach programs – Texas A&M Corpus Christi and Houston Baptist. This will give all of our players an opportunity to see court time, implement our new systems and compete against opponents other than each other.”

The team will then conclude the spring season by hosting a TCU Volleyball Alumni Weekend from Feb. 27-28. The Alumni match will take place on Saturday and will feature the return of the very first coach in program history – Sandy Troudt.

“We plan to end the spring season by hosting an Alumni Weekend at the end of February and have an indoor alumni match. This will be a great time as former head coach Sandy Troudt will be returning to coach the alumni squad,” Kramer said.

The Alumni Weekend and spring season will end with Horned Frogs Volleyball Banquet on Sunday from 2-4 p.m. Tickets to the banquet are $50 a person and those wishing to attend can email Laura Weisbrod (l.weisbrod@tcu.edu) or by calling the TCU volleyball office at 817-257-7360.
