Volleyball suffers first loss of season to Florida State


By Benton McDonald

The TCU Volleyball team suffered their first loss of the season Friday, losing in straight sets to the Florida State Seminoles. The teams are playing in a tournament hosted by Colorado State.

The Seminoles never struggled, winning all sets by at least four points (25-21, 25-17, 25-18).

The Horned Frogs low hitting percentage, a season-low .102, and the Seminoles’ 15 blocks proved to be the difference.

TCU’s 23 errors were also their second highest mark of the season, and 13 more than the Seminoles.

Freshman Èlan McCall continued to impress offensively, leading the team with 13 kills. It was her fifth straight double-digit kill match.

Senior Anna Walsh and sophomore Sarah Swanson also combined for 11 kills. Sophomore Berklie Baker led the team with 13 digs, her second straight double-digit match.

TCU will look to rebound in this weekend’s tournament when they take on Cincinnati tomorrow at 1:00 p.m.
