    TCU Volleyball took a loss in five sets on the road against its first Big 12 opponent, the Kansas State Wildcats.

    In Thursday’s match, the Frogs were able to showcase their defensive talent. Middle blocker Brianna Green recorded 10 blocks throughout the match, which is her third time this season to have 10 or more blocks in a match, three of them being solos.

    In the first set, the Wildcats secured an early lead. Green’s first block of the match was the spark that ignited TCU’s offensive to go on a 5-0 run and continue to control the set after being tied at 15 to steal the set win.

    TCU’s explosive defensive performance in the second set held the Wildcats to a 0.000 hitting percentage and 11 attack errors, which put the Frogs up 2-0 in the match.

    With 12 tie scores in the third set, TCU came out on top with a win as kills from Green and Parra gave the Frogs a late lead, and the final kill from Outside Hitter Taylor Raiola secured the set and match sweeping the Wildcats.

    Libero Cecily Bramschreiber and Setter Riley Buckley were team leaders by tallying 9 digs each in Thursday’s match.

    Outside Hitter Melanie Parra recorded 14 kills in the match, continuing to lead TCU’s offense.

    The Frogs kept it close in Friday’s match with multiple players continuing to set season and personal bests.

    Parra’s record-setting efforts on both sides of the ball didn’t slow. She recorded more than 20 digs and kills in the match against the Wildcats. She is the first TCU player since 2000 to achieve this record, tallying 22 kills and 21 digs.

    Middle blocker Sarah Sylvester led the Frogs in blocks by recording her season-best of 10.

    They added to a total of 20 blocks by the Frogs, which is the highest mark in the Big 12 this season.

    Despite its offensive efforts, TCU lost to Kansas State inside the Morgan Family Arena in Manhattan, Kansas.
