Cats win t o tourneys, and bu season 34-18 Coach Kathy Moore, who has been sociated with the women's volleyball im seven of its 10 years, says she thinks is year's team was the strongest she's n. Efhe Wildcats finished the year with one the best records the school has seen, 34- . Individual and team records were oken during a season that included only ren home matches. The Wildcats began their schedule by rnning the Lady Chap Tournament at lbbock Christian College, ACU's first Ei-in that tourney. he next weekend the team played four ttches in San Antonio, winning two and ing two.

State. Weak defensive play characterized the Cats' three wins and two losses in the San Angelo tournament Oct. 2 and 3. The team followed the tournament with a loss to Texas Tech. But the Wildcats won their home tourney Oct. 10-ll with wins in matches against Howard Payne University, Mary Hardin-Baylor, Lubbock Christian, Tarleton State and West Texas State. The tournament was the first ACU has sponsored. Two more wins Oct. 13 brought the Cats' consecutive wins to seven, but a disappointing loss to Angelo State Univer- sity Oct. 19 ended the team's longest winn- ing streak. The team won three and lost two in Texas Wesleyan's tournament in Fort Worth in late October. In their last home game the Wildcats beat Texas Wesleyan but lost to Texas Tech. The team closed out the season a week before the Nov. 5-7 state tournament with a loss to Angelo State in San Angelo. The first night of the ll-team state tour- nament in Huntsville the Wildcats lost to Rice and Angelo State. In the next day's play the team lost to Sam Houston State but defeated Hardin- Simmons University. The Wildcats' outstanding player in the tournament was Doris Leverett, a transfer from HSU. Team captains for the year were seniors Pennie Dacus, Susan Scott and Jan Johnson. As the season began Moore said she expected them to be the team's nucleus. They fulfilled those expectations. Although the seniors were strong, the Wildcats' talent was well-distributed among all 14 team members, and Moore said she expects all but the seniors to return. At the season's end Moore also said she was pleased that team members who did not get to play much stayed with the team. Dacus emerged as the individual leader and won the Most Valuable Player title with a record of setting with 98 percent ac- curacy. She also missed only four out of 627 serves for the year and set records in every area but blocking. Also strong were sophomore Karen DeArmond, who set with 96 percent ac- curacy, and Abilene High graduate Susan Ogle, a strong spiker. Not only were team statistic totals more than in past years, Moore said, but percen- tages also were higher. The increase in percentages was significant because the team played twice as many games as it did in 1980. Moore added a new offense, the shoot- set, which uses a well-timed low set that looks as if it will go out of bounds, but is spiked just before it does. The play was ef- fective because of its quickness and power. Co-captain Scott said the only teams they played who knew a defense for the play were Texas Tech and Angelo State. Moore, in her second year of coaching the team, said the season had convinced her not to schedule as many games, especially road games, in coming seasons. "The traveling took its toll on us. We played much tougher teams and were out of town too much. Not only were we out of town more, but we took very long trips at the same time," she said. Volleyball 85
