Transcript GAME/ SET# MATCH Seniors lead the charge as the Volleyball team dominates its opponents By Crystal J. Doucette Cougar volleyball continued a long tradition of competitive play with its 2000 season. Underneath the tutelage of 15-year head coach Bill Walton, UH volleyball has made it to postseason play in 12 of those seasons with 11 NCAA appearances. With a strong senior class leading the squad UH looked to dominate Conference USA competition, starting off the conference season with 11-straight victories. Senior hitter Jennifer Wittenburg went down with a torn plantar fascia against DePaul. Although the injury occurred only five weeks from the 2000 C-USA Tournament, Wittenburg returned a week early to play in Hofheinz Pavilion for Senior Night. UH received a first round bye in the tournament with fourth seed and second place in the National Division. The Cougars swept DePaul in the quarterfinals, but were topped by South Florida in the semifinals. The team made its NCAA appearance, but, fell to No. 23 Texas A&M in the first round. Wittenburg was named to the All- Midwest Region Team, as well as First- Team All-Conference. Seniors Michelle Frazier and Bobbi Stewart were named Second-Team All-Conference. Going for the kill Senior rightside hitter Jennifer Wittenburg goes up to put to the Lady Cougars ahead. Wittenburg suffered an injury that put her out of the lineup until she led the volleyball team to the C-USA Tournament semifinals. Photo by Gary Maltz ■ Profile: Coach Walton As head coach of the UH women's volleyball team, Bill Walton has guided the program to 11 NCAA tournament invitations, an NIVC tournament championship in 1990 and 320 wins since his first year as head coach in 1986. He recorded his 300th career win at UH on Sept. 1, 2000 in the season-opener against Texas- Arlington and ended the season with 530 career wins, 320 at UH. An Illinois native, Walton played volleyball at George Williams College, where he was a two-time NAIA Ail- American. He helped lead his team to a national volleyball title in 1974 and gained a spot on the 1976 and 1979 United States National Teams. Walton earned his first opportunity as a head coach at Elmhurst in 1981. The team played in the 1982 NCAA Division III regional finals and won the NCAA title in 1983 over UC San Diego, 3-1. Walton built the UH program to a .645 winning percentage (320-176) and its 10th straight NCAA tournament invitation, an honor only 12 schools in the nation can claim. The team's reputation under his tutelage secured some highly talented players, including Michelle Frazier (first team all-district 21-5A and second team all-greater Houston, 1995) and Jennifer Wittenburg, who began her collegiate career at UCLA in 1996. -CrystalJ.
