The TCU Volleyball team got an easy victory Wednesday night as it eased past the Texas State Bobcats in 3 games at the University Recreation Center.The Frogs, 11-2, were coming off a disappointing loss to the University of Mississippi, but came out and swept the 3-8 Bobcats 30-24, 30-17, and 30-25.
“It’s the best we’ve played in two consecutive games,” said head coach Prentice Lewis.
The Frogs had 49 kills in the game, led by junior LeMeita Smith’s team-high 12 kills.
“LeMeita did a really great job blocking and hitting,” said freshman Katelyn Blackwood.
The Frogs came out strong in the first two games, but struggled to hold off the Bobcats in the third.
“Yes, we won the third game, but we missed some serves,” said Lewis. “It wasn’t as crisp as I would have liked.”
Smith also agreed that the Frogs had trouble serving.
“We could have served a little better,” she said. “That’s something we really struggled with.”
The Frogs had four blocks, but Lewis said they could have done a better job blocking.
“We didn’t block as well as I wanted us to but we did touch a lot of balls,” she said. “If we’re getting the ball to our defense then we can run a play.”
Overall, Lewis said she was happy with the game.
“My whole team played awesome,” she said.
Blackwood said she thinks they were able to sweep the Bobcats because it was a team effort.
“We really played as a team,” Blackwood said. “No one played as an individual.”
Smith was also pleased, and said she was happy with her team’s efforts to make as few errors as possible.
“Everyone was just really focused,” she said.
Freshman Lauren Otto led the team with 16 points, followed closely by Smith’s 13 points and senior Anna Vaughn’s 11.
“Overall I think the intensity was really great and we went out there and got it done in three,” Blackwood said.
The Frogs will face the Cowgirls of Wyoming Saturday at 2 p.m. in the University Recreation Center.
