FORT WORTH -- After losing to TCU at home on Oct. 10, the BYU women’s volleyball team (12-10, 6-4 MWC) fell to TCU (21-5, 10-2 MWC) again, this time on the road 3-0 (25-12, 25-18, 25-18).

"TCU is a great team who came ready to play," said BYU head coach Shay Goulding. "We, unfortunately, did not come ready to play. We will continue to take the season match-by-match and improve on our weaknesses."

Senior rightside hitter Kayla Walker led the Cougars in kills with eight, also tallying eight digs. Transfer Camilla Phillips chalked up seven kills hitting at .333 while Christina Measom tallied five blocks. Libero Melissa Lake Wright tallied a season-high 20 digs, also tying her career-high.

Walker and Measom had a block to start off the first set while TCU went on a 7-0 run with two kills from Kourtney Edwards. BYU called a timeout at 6-1, and was able to scrounge up some points but the closest it got was 4-8.

With Irene Hester back to serve for the Horned Frogs, TCU went on a 5-0 run ending with a service error at 16-7. TCU went on to win the set on a 4-0 run with a kill from Hester, a service ace from Megan Munce and two BYU attack errors 15-12.

The second set began with traded service error and attack errors on both teams until Munce of TCU tallied the first kill at 4-2, TCU lead. Walker struck back with a kill of her own, followed by a TCU 3-0 run, ending at 7-4 with Nicole Warner and Camilla Phillips scoring the next two points. BYU later posted a 3-0 run to knot the score at eight.

With back-and-forth play the score was also tied at nine, 10, 11, 13 and 14 until TCU tallied a 4-0 run with three kills from Hester and one from Munce to give the Horned Frogs a 17-14 lead. Two kills from Walker, a service error and a kill from Warner were the last points the Cougars scored in the second set with TCU coming out on top again 15-18.

In the third set BYU lost the match by posting eight attack errors to give TCU the win 15-18. The score was close to start off the set, tying the score seven different times, until the Horned Frogs jumped out to a 15-11 lead after a 5-0 run. Casey Speredon Thurston tallied three kills in between TCU points, but it wasn’t enough to catch up with the Horned Frogs. After taking a BYU timeout at 22-15, Nicole Warner posted a kill, but after a TCU block and two kills from Edwards, the Horned Frogs grabbed their 11th Mountain West Conference win of the season.

Edwards led the Horned Frogs in kills with 13, hitting at .400 with one solo block while her team hit at .273 to the Cougars’ .051.

The Cougars will continue on the road to conference foe New Mexico Saturday at 7 p.m. MT.
