Transcript Digging for the Win wi Heading into the 2005 season, the UH volleyball team had been picked to finish tied for fourth place in the revamped Conference USA, but the Cougars far exceeded those expectations. The Cougars finished the regular season as the runner-up in GUSA with anl8-12 overall record and 10-4 league mark and came up short on an NCAA Tournament bid when they lost to regular season champion Marshall in the GUSA championship game. Coming off a 2004 season in which they finished 1121, UH relied on the experience of its seasoned upperclassmen and some talented freshmen to carry the team through a rigorous conference schedule. Led by head coach Bill Walton in his 20th season at UH, the Cougars struggled with a 5-7 record in the preseason before the start of conference play. After a 3-0 loss to Texas-El Paso on Sept. 30, the Cougars ripped off victories in nine of their next 10 games. Included in that impressive run was a 3 0 victory against East Carolina on Oct. 22 that netted Walton his 600th career victory. With the conclusion of the season also came the end to the storied career of senior libero Jaci Gonzalez. A four-year starter, Gonzalez was a key defensive player for the Cougars and on Oct. 2 against Tulane, she broke the GUSA digs record (2,074). She leaves the court 2^49 career digs which ranks third in NCAA history. For her play this season, she was named to the All GUSA First Team and voted as the GUSA Defensive Player of the Year for the second straight year. "Jaci has been one of the best liberos in the conference ever since her freshman year" Walton said in a release. "This award for her is fulfilling an expectation. I've said this before, but this team (was) successful not because Jaci (dug) the ball. It (was) because of her leadership and what she (did) for the team off the floor" Senior outside hitter Kariny Ritter was also named to the first team after a season in which she led the Cougars with 493 kills and was third with 267 digs.
