TCU Volleyball sweeps Nike Invitational


The Horned Frog volleyball team swept the Nike Invitational this past weekend and took home the championship.

The Frogs had a doubleheader on Friday, opening up the tournament with a three-game sweep over the University of Texas at San Antonio. TCU finished off Friday’s portion of the tournament by taking down the University of Alabama at Birmingham in another sweep.

In Saturday’s championship match, TCU came out on top with 3-1 victory in four games over Ohio University. It was the Horned Frogs’ sixth consecutive win.

Junior middle blocker Kristen Hester was named tournament MVP, and senior Christy Hudson and sophomore Meghan Horio were named to the all-tournament team.

In the championship match, Hudson had 19 digs and junior Hannah Fort had four blocks. Senior Irene Hester dominated offensively with 14 kills.

The Horned Frogs now hold a 9-4 record for the season. The Horned Frogs will go for a seventh straight win tonight when they take on rival SMU at home. The match will start at 7 p.m. and will be televised live on The Mtn.
