Transcript Just managing Busines. Hitter Lilly Denoon works hard for two families It took only one mighty swipe at a volleyball for sophomore hitter Lilly Denoon to strike fear in the hearts of her opponents on the other side of the net. Intimidation was not an art that Denoon had set out to perfect, but when it came to winning, she didn't hold back. "Ever since I was in high school I have wanted to play volleyball and win. I don't want to hurt anybody though," Denoon said. Her many years of volleyball playing had paid off. Twice during the 1992 season, Lilly was named Southwest Conference Player of the Week. She had a long list of accomplishments that definitely qualified her for the honor. Denoon led the Cougars and the SWC in hitting percentage with a .332 and .358. She also had an overall block high of 120 and she led the SWC with 55 blocks. Denoon had been involved in athletics since junior high. "I started basketball first in school. That was my first love. Then I started playing volleyball. I love anything that has to do with being outside," she said. All four years of Denoon's high school career were spent on the var sity squad, so she was no stranger to success when she came to Houston. Strangely enough, Denoon's greatest aspiration was to go to Texas. "I had always set my sights on Texas ever since I was little. I was up for a scholarship for basketball at Texas, however, they wanted an answer right at the end of volleyball season because they only had one scholarship to give," she said. "I wasn't ready to give them an answer." Fortunately, Denoon was introduced to UH, and the rest was history. Denoon's involvement in sports stemmed from her overwhelming desire to fulfill a dream. "The main reason I have played sports was so I could go to college. I knew that I was good enough to go to college and get a scholarship. I want to make something of myself," she said. Another big attraction for Denoon was the close proximity to her childhood home in Pasadena. Family was very important to her and she had even centered her career goals toward a business venture with her father. "My father is a mechanic and he has always wanted to own his own shop. I am a business man agement major and I want to help my Dad. I want to be there for him." Between volleyball and academics, free time was something that continued to elude Denoon. "I am always thinking, dreaming, eating and sleeping volleyball. On top of that I have to study. Sometimes I may not want to study, but I know that I have to because school is most important." Denoon set her sights on another goal-to possibly play in the Olympics. "It will take a lot of work and dedication and hard work but that is something I have always wanted to do," she said.-Heather Ellis onn 134 Sports Lady Cougar Volleyball .Lilly Denoon takes a strong dig against Texas.
