Houston Volleyball Team Sweeps Texas-Arlington 3-0

  • Box Score

    HOUSTON (Sept. 2) -- After fighting for its season-opening win over Texas-Arlington less than 24 hours before, the University of Houston volleyball team coasted to a 15-3, 15-11, 15-13 sweep of the Mavericks in a Saturday afternoon rematch between the two teams in Hofheinz Pavilion.

    Houston sharpened-up its offensive execution, cutting its errors by more than half from Friday night, and kept UTA in check with a balanced attack. Where one player, senior Jennifer Wittenburg, had a school record 87 attempts and a near-school record 33 kills in the Friday night opener, six different Cougars had 15 or more swings Saturday in a match that lasted only 80 minutes.

    Wittenburg again led the team in kills Saturday, but led with only 11 while playing in just two of the three games. She earned a well-deserved rest in game three after having posted a stellar .346 hitting percentage in 22 attempts and seven defensive digs. Houston didn't need to go to her offensively because three other players, Michelle Frazier, Bobbi Stewart and Leslie Lasiter, all hit .360 or better in the match.

    The Cougars meanwhile maintained the defensive pressure it had the night before in digging and blocking to improve to 2-0. It marked only the second time since 1995 Houston had opened a volleyball season with two-straight victories. Texas-Arlington fell to 0-2. The Mavericks were led by Tracee Cole's 12 kills.

    UH will put its unblemished record on the line when it next plays on Wednesday, September 6, against state-rival Texas A&M. First serve with the Aggies will be at 7:00 p.m. in College Station.
