Transcript etween 1986 and 2002, Bill Walton's women's volleyball teams never finished with a losing record and boasted a streak of eight seasons in which they won at least 20 games. In 12 of 19 seasons Walton has posted a winning percentage better than .500. Walton's frustration over the struggles of the past two seasons is rooted in the consistency of the past 17. He knows the team should be better. After a 19-13 season in 2002, the team finished 12-20 in 2003 and 11-21 in 2004. Walton talked to his players this season about the team's inability to build confidence and sustain stretches of energetic play. He was particularly frustrated that November, the final month of the season, was the team's best month. "I told the girls late in the year that the effort we had in practice and in our final matches was a sign that we were looking for who we could have become. In other words, I thought we were looking like the team we could have been all season had we been able to sustain that kind of record" he said. Walton even praised the energy and determination of his team after the Cougars' meeting with Louisville on Nov. 20. The Cardinals swept UH in three games. Despite their losing record, the Cougars finished in the top half of the NCAA's end-of-season ranking. Walton said the ranking reflected his team's difficult schedule and improved play late in the season. (Continued on p. 106) s Bill Walton nears his 20th year at UH as women's volleyball coach, he will face a new challenge: ending a streak of losing seasons. In 2004, he found that injuries, a tough schedule and inexperience can undermine even the most established program. Story by Mark Smith |{f) 104
