Transcript Individual efforts SPIKE L he young netters built themselves quite a reputation in 1991: they finished the season as the no. 1 blocking team in the SWC, no. 2 in kills and no. 2 in service. However, the team was plagued with their share of problems as well. UH ranked no. 3 in the SWC in giving up points, allowing the opposing team an average of six-and-a-half points per game. "The hitters were too anxious against big teams," Coach Walton said. "We need experienced setters to help inexperienced attackers. We would have won three or four more if they had just been a fraction better," he said. The low point was a loss to Texas Tech in October. The Coogs were up 14-12 in the fourth game. "We served three times for the game point," Walton said, and failed to score." UH lost game four 14-16. With one last chance at logging another win, the weary Coogs still fell short 12-15 in game 5. The disappointment was in the statistics; UH scored more total points than Tech, but lost the match. "We had five more hitting errors/' Walton said, "Which made the difference. We need to feel more comfortable with each other and with the competition." While UH netters enjoyed a successful season as a team, individual achievements grew as well. Junior Karina Faber and senior Karen Bell made First Team all- SWC while sophomore Ashley Mulkey made the Second Team. Mulkey, additionally, was named SWC Player of the Week twice wile Bell and Faber earned the same honor during the season. Faber was honored twice more, making the NCAA First TeairL-South Region and was an All Ameri- teams reputation can nominee. One individual who deserves special commendation is senior powerhouse Karen Bell. "Bell is the strongest, most powerful player in the SWC," Coach Walton said. Bell has enjoyed numerous honors including all SWC honors, Player of the Week and holds school records for kill attempts, service aces and most service aces in a match. As a freshman, Bell held a season high record of nine kills in one match-a number which she more than tripled dur- ing the next three years. Bell lacked experience as a freshman, according to Coach Walton. It was her all- around athletic ability that impressed Walton the most. She photo by Thomas Nguyen currently ranks 120 Sports among UH's all-time top five volleyball players. The team has nine of its 11 players returning next season and the team, as a whole will be more experienced. Although seniors Karen Bell and Ginger Wittkofski will be missed, Walton feels that that-as a team- they can replace Bell's power. The difficult part will be replacing Wittkofski's consistency, according to Walton. "Ginger is tough every game," he said. Wittkofski earned herself an honor by juggling books and volleyballs, making a 3.40 in the fall, and winning GTE/SWC All-Academic honors with a 3.28 overall in Biology. On the court, she posted the largest single-match block total in the country, with 18 against ^^\Qf^mmmmmmmmmmmmmm^m^ Walton expects big returns from his team next year, but a successful season like this lays the foundation for future victo- ries.-Melissa Lang Ar Lrrrrgh!
