Transcript oogs Third in SWC come-from-behind miracle For the past seven seasons volleyball coach Bill Walton has run a top-of-the-line program with an outstanding record. The team has averaged 21 victories since Walton has taken charge, but at the beginning of this season the pieces were not fitting together as expected. Walton faced the task of replacing five seniors, four of whom were starters. Some gaps were filled by returning blocker Lily Denoon. As a sophomore last season, Denoon hit .308 and averaged 1.33 blocks per game. Returning hitter Ashley Mulkey is another prominent player Walton counted on to fill the gaps. She finished last season second on the team in blocking, digging, and hitting. All-Southland Conference player Wendy Munzel transferred from Southwest Texas State to hit for the Cougars. Hitter Carla Maul transferred from Kellogg Community College, and setter Keri Brindle transferred from Cerritos Community College. Last season both players earned second-team junior college All-American honors. After redshirting last season, hitter Natasha Woods returned to the team. Hitter Stacey Craven is another major player. Craven received a walk-on scholarship for 1993. With these ingredients, who would have thought anything could go wrong? Halfway through the season the team's record stood at a disappointing 4-11. True, the team was young and had trouble communicating at crucial moments, but Walton did not directly blame those factors. "It's hard to say that those are the reason," Walton said. "The blame is more specific in terms of passing, setting, and spiking." The Southwest Conference opener against Baylor was a harsh slap in the face for Houston. Over the past seven seasons Walton had amassed a perfect record of 14-0 against the Bears. Although it took five matches, Baylor defeated Houston for the first time. "I don't remember ever loosing to Baylor. It was an insult," Craven said. Again Houston's pride suffered a sharp blow. The game everyone had been waiting to play ended in another loss. Texas allowed Houston only one win out of four matches. "UT is well-disciplined. They do the same thing all the time, and they do it well. They force you to adjust," Walton said. However, the volleyball team was able to pull it together and ended the season with a record of 20-16. At Texas Tech's Municipal Coliseum Houston began a five game winning streak. A loss to Nebraska ended their fortune, but they quickly gained momentum against William and Mary and coasted through the remainder of the season with five consecutive wins. Houston began post-season play against Texas A&M in the SWC tournament. A&M allowed Houston to pick up a win, but Texas swiftly crushed the previous days victory. During the NCAA Championships Houston advanced to the second round with the defeat of Clemson.
