team challenges four others in tourney
volleyball team continues its spring season with a tournament
Friday at TCU.
It may not be volleyball season yet, but that hasnt
stopped the Horned Frog volleyball team from competing.
TCU will hit the court for the second of four consecutive
weekend tournaments Friday when they host a spring tournament
in the Recreation Center. It is common for teams to play
in spring tournaments to continue practicing in the offseason,
said Ryan Chambers, a Media Relations spokeswoman.
Head volleyball coach Prentice Lewis said the tournament
was an open invitation for anyone who wanted to come play
and said the team, currently with only seven players,
hopes to get better as individuals.
We are looking to get in turn for next season and
just get better every day, Lewis said.
The Frogs will play four matches in one day against Baylor,
Stephen F. Austin, Texas-San Antonio and Texas-Arlington.
North Texas and Tulsa will also be in the tournament but
will not face the Frogs.
Lewis said each team will play two games to 30, which
is not a complete volleyball match.
The first pair of 14 matches begins at 9 a.m. and will
be played simultaneously on two courts. TCU plays Baylor
at 9 a.m., SFA at 10 a.m., UTSA at 1 p.m. and UTA at 3
Lewis said the team competed in a tournament last weekend
at the University of Texas and will then travel to Southern
Methodist and then to Arkansas for tournaments in the
weeks to follow.
She said she would love for fans to come out and support
the volleyball team during the tournament.
TCU finished last season 20-16 and 5-8 in Conference USA
