HOUSTON - The University of Houston volleyball team defeated Wake Forest 3-1 Saturday night to conclude the Houston Tournament. In their third straight win the Cougars beat the Demon Deacons with scores of 27-30, 30-24, 30-24, and 30-28 at the Athletics/Alumni Center.

The Cougars (6-6, 1-0) were led by freshman Hannah Sullivan, who had her first career double-double, notching 24 kills and 14 digs. Junior Justine Farmer added 16 kills and 18 digs for her eighth double-double this season.

The Cougars take a 1-0 lead in the all-time series against the Demon Deacons.

Houston fell behind 1-0 after a close game one in which there were three ties and one lead change. Freshman Lucy Charuk led all hitters with nine kills and a .750 hitting percentage and junior Kelsey King added 16 assists.

Game two was a game of runs. After Houston jumped out to a 16-12 lead, Wake Forest called a timeout and returned to the floor scoring the next three points to get within one, 16-15. But Houston responded with a 6-1 run to stretch their lead to 22-16. That would be just enough to hold off the Demon Deacons for the 30-24 win.

Houston would take a late 23-12 lead in game three before Wake Forest came out of a timeout to score five quick points. With the lead cut to four, 24-20, the momentum seemed to be in the Demon Deacon's favor but Houston battled for the 30-24 win. Sullivan notched seven kills in the game on 19 attempts and just one error.

 

 

Determined to make it out of the tournament with three wins, Farmer led the Cougars in game four with six kills and seven digs for the 30-28 win.

Natalie Mullikin and Megan Thornberry led the way for Wake Forest with 17 kills and 23 digs, respectively.

Houston will be back in action Sept. 21 for a conference match-up against UCF in Orlando, Fla. The match is set to begin at 6 p.m.
