23 Wahine did not win that set decisively. they hung tough. if it wasnt for UA's Service error along with Hartong's critical kills towards the end of set 1, Arizona could have pass them. Wahine was getting roofed.
UH hit 290 in Set 2, UA 139. UH outblocked UA 5-1.5. Adolph 2 solo, 2 BA
both teams at 27 digs, Longo 7, Manu-Olevao and Uiato with 5
Kingdon 12 kills for UA, not getting a lot of help. Torres next with 4.
Hartong 11-3-27, Manu-Olevao 6-2-16, Adolpho 6-2-12, Vorster 3-1-4, Taylor 4-0-10.
UH 3 aces, 3 Ses. UA 0 aces, 5 SEs.
be back in a bit. but all-tourney team Uiato (MOP), Hartong, Adolpho; from Arizona Kingon and Magill; Patton from PSU and NU's Stephanie Holthus.
Nice that Kahuku VB team was here to cheer on UA setter Penina, who played for Kahuku last year. They stayed and sang the alma mater
Looks like Arizona decided that it would not be beat by Hartong; tracked her with two blockers all night long; Rubio was mad when Hartong was left uncovered in her back row attacks. This left the right and middle with one blocker or late arriving 2nd blockers all night, of which Adolpho and Taylor took advantage. Good for them. Vorster still not taking good swings but still effective enough. Sort of irritated when Kawamura, Mendoza, and Long had five service errors among them. Hey, they are suppose to be serving and back row specialists. Sort of forgive them because they give opponents trouble when their serves do go in, especially Kawamura. Her jump float dances.
76. Not poor sportsmanship. they had a plane to catch. believe the flight was at 11. They would have been in trouble if it had gone 5. Not the first time a team was a no-show at the end because of needing to get to the airport. UH has shipped a lot of awards out over the years because teams had to leave. Texas was gone at 5 a.m. the Sunday for the opening tournament. may have been back in Austin by the time UH played USD.
