FORT WORTH – After three weekends on the road TCU Volleyball had their first match of the season at Schollmaier. The wait did not disappoint as TCU defeats Hawaii three sets to one Thursday night.
Melanie Parra was the star of the evening in her first career start at Schollmaier Arena. Parra amassed a career high 27 kills against Hawaii. Parra filled up the stat sheet also contributing seven digs, three service aces, three blocks, and two assists.
While Parra’s effort stood out, TCU got key contributions from several of their key members Thursday night as well. Riley Buckley who was also one of several Frogs making their first home start had another double-double. Buckley had 40 assists and 10 digs in the win, her fifth consecutive double-double.
Bri Green added 10 blocks for the Frogs. This was Green’s second consecutive game with double digit blocks. Green is one block shy of 500 career blocks, she also had a season-best six kills in the match.
“Super proud of the team, they showed a lot of resiliency tonight,” coach Jason Williams said. “Not our best volleyball, but at times when we needed to step up we had different players come through for us.”
