    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (Sept. 17) -- University of Houston senior volleyball players Jennifer Wittenburg and Bobbi Stewart were both named to the Bank of Fayetteville Invitational All-Tournament team over the weekend after leading the Cougars (6-3) to a second place finish in the four-team, round-robin tourney.

    Wittenburg averaged an eye-opening 6.62 kills and 5.39 defensive digs per game against three opponents that all advanced to the NCAA Tournament last season. She blasted 27 kills and broke a 12-year old UH record with 34 defensive digs in a single match against No. 23 ranked Michigan. The Cougars pushed the match to a full five games before finally falling 15-13 in the rally-scored finale. The next morning Wittenburg spiked 34 kills with 20 digs in an upset win over SEC power Arkansas, helping UH snap the Razorbacks streak of 20-straight regular season home wins in Barnhill Arena that dated back to 1998. The Houston native and former Cy Falls High School standout then came back in the round-robin tournament less than two hours later and recorded 25 kills with 16 digs and a .296 hitting percentage in a 3-1 win over Virginia. For the weekend she tallied 7 total blocks, a team-best 6 service aces and made 16.9 attack attempts in 13 games played.

    Stewart averaged 3.85 kills and 2.39 defensive digs per game while hitting a composite .231 with 7 total blocks. She spiked 27 kills and hit .367 against Arkansas on the road. She posted double-figure kills and digs against Michigan and was second to Wittenburg in kills against Virginia with 11.

    The Cougars are scheduled to open C-USA play this week against South Florida on Tuesday, September 19, in Tampa. The team will play its C-USA home-opener against Southern Miss on Friday night in Hofheinz Pavilion at 7:30 p.m. Houston is 50-12 (.806) in C-USA regular season matches over the last four years.
