FORT WORTH, TEXAS – The High Point University volleyball team had its four game win-streak snapped by TCU on Saturday in Fort Worth, Texas. The Panthers fell to the tournament host 3-0 (20-25, 11-25, 14-25).

“TCU definitely served and passed better than we did tonight,” said head coach Jason Oliver. “We knew that would be a key going in to the match and we served well enough but our serve receive let us down. That is easily fixed as we begin conference play next week. TCU is a great team in a great conference and definitely helped us prepare for league play.”

Freshman Camryn Freiberg hit .467 with seven kills in the match and freshman Haley Barnes added six kills. Senior Kristin Heldt led HPU with nine kills and eight digs. Junior Wavie Chin added eight digs.

Barnes and Wavie Chin were named to the TCU Molten Invitational All-Tournament team. For Barnes, it is the second honor of the season as she was also named to the All-Tournament team last weekend at the Wildcat Classic.

High Point stayed with TCU in the first set, trailing by just two points for most of the frame. HPU was down 18-20 on a kill by Chelsea Davis when the Horned Frogs started to pull away. Ashley Smith put down three-straight kills for TCU to open up a 24-19 lead. The Panthers sided out once but Blaire Pickens ended the set with a kill for TCU. HPU hit .400 with 15 kills in the first set.

TCU controlled the second set with a 25-11 win. HPU was down 7-8 in set three before the Horned Frogs went on a seven-point run to take a 15-7 lead and open up the match. TCU went on to win 25-14.

High Point will spend the week preparing for the Big South Conference opener at Campbell on Friday at 7 p.m.
