SNL: 9/18/11


On Tuesday, the 2011 edition of the VolleyFrogs became the holders of the best start in school history. Hosting our favorite Waco inhabitants, the Frogs skunked Baylor 3-0 and thus became the first TCU Volleyball team to start a season 10-0.

But they didn't stop there. Friday they started play in the Seton Hall Invitational (South Orange, NJ). The took out Boston College 3-0 and also swept the prestigious New Jersey Institute of Technology Highlanders 3-0.

And then Saturday, they wrapped up the tourney by knocking off host Seton Hall 3-1. The VolleyFrogs are now 13-0.


The Lady Frogs traveled to Nacogdoches to take on Stephen F. Austin on Friday night. TCU fell behind and were losing 2-0 at the half but made a valiant effort in the second with goals from Junior (and Mexican National Team member) Monica Alvarado and Senior (and former Mexican National Team member) Kaylie Garcia. It wasn't quite enough as SFA added one more and defeated the Frogs 3-2.

Sunday, the Frogs were back home and the took on the Demons of Northwestern State. The Frogs controlled the game pretty much from start to finish, taking nearly 30 shots on goal, but it still took halfway through the second half before Senior Jordan Calhoun tagged the lone goal of the contest. It was her 3rd of the season, 32nd of her career (TCU record) and 76th point of her career, a new TCU record.

Men's Golf

Friday and Saturday, the Golf Frogs participated in The McLaughlin Tournament (Farmingdale, NY). As a team, TCU finished 2nd (of 5) behind West Florida. Another strong individual performance had Junior Daniel "WTF is the deal with my hair" Jennevret finishing in second (-9), 2 strokes behind the leader. Freshman Julien Brun and Senior Johan de Beer tied for 3rd (-4).

Men's Tennis & Women's Tennis

Both Tennis Squads were participating in 3 day events. The Men competed in the Racquet Club Collegiate International in Midland and the Women were also in Midland at the less exciting sounding Midland Invitational. Final results haven't been released yet.Link
