TCU Volleyball continued its day of victories with a win over Green Bay Friday night.

 

The Horned Frogs won in straight sets, 25-17,25-17,25-19, to improve to 2-0 on the season. They were led by first-year outside hitter Elan McCall and senior middle hitter Anna Walsh who combined for 30 kills.

Both teams started off slow and the game was back and forth early. But as the first set progressed, TCU started to take control. After a timeout midway through the first set, the Horned Frogs went on a 10-5 run to win the set.

“Offensively we started off really slow and hadn’t had a great connection,” Head Coach Jill Kramer said. “In the second match, there was lots more consistent tempo and location.”

The second and third sets were similar to the first with TCU climbing back to take the lead midway through the set and holding on to win.

The team finished with a .400 hitting percentage and totaled 52 kills and 49 assists with only 12 errors despite their slow start offensively.

Defensively, the Horned Frogs limited Green Bay to only a .161 hitting percentage and had 6.5 total team blocks.

“I think our team had a really good showing today. I think we bounced back from little things, little errors… and also came back with great plays,” Kramer said. “Offensively our numbers are good and I think we are happy with where we ended up today.”

However good they may feel, the team knows that they are just scratching the surface of their potential. A potential that grows each time they take the court together.

“The end goal is that we want to win the Big 12 and go far in the tournament but I think that every time we are on the court together we have that much better connection, that much better chemistry,” Walsh said.

The Horned Frogs will play the SIUE Cougars tomorrow at 5:00 pm to wrap up the 2018 Cowtown Classic.
