Hartong wins another weekly BWC honor

September 23rd, 2013

Senior hitter Emily Hartong picked up her second Big West women's volleyball player of the week in four weeks today. It was the third for a Rainbow Wahine this month; senior setter Mita Uiato was honored last week.

Hartong averaged 4.18 kills and 3.09 digs en route to the MVP honors at the Shocker Volleyball Classic. The Rainbow Wahine defeated South Dakoto, No. 23 Creighton and Wichita State.

Hartong hit .284 (46-13-116) for the tournament with double-figure kills in each match and double-doubles in two of them.  She had a match-high 20 kills on .311 hitting (20-6-45) while adding 16 digs and a pair of service aces against the Bluejays, helping UH to its third win over a ranked opponent this year.

She opened the tournament with 13 kills, 13 digs and three blocks against South Dakota.  Hartong also swung at a .278 clip with 13 kills in the finale against Wichita State. She leads the Big West in kills per set (4.70).

    It's really surprising to me that Robins-Hardy hasn't committed anywhere yet with signing day just over a month away. She's a big talent.

    Really impressed with Mckenna Granato's powerful armswing and she can dig and pass pretty good too, Shoji will do wonders with her.

    50. don't think you'll see redshirts. this is the chance for the current players to get some court time.

    As the conference season begins, crosstown a.k.a. interstate rivalries are featured, and the Pac-12 is legendary for these rivalries. But (with few exceptions) it is already shaping up to be an upset-free week, even though the first week of conference play traditionally produces large applecarts being upset.

    Arizona @ [#16] Arizona St -- unfortunately, the Cats got swept as Madi Kingdon was held to .022, Croson to .107 ... obviously I say "unfortunately" not cuz I am a Sun Devils fan but because Arizona's W-L record affects UH's RPI

    9/25 (Wed)
    [#1] Washington @ Washington St
    [#11] UCLA @ [#4] USC
    [#7] Stanford @ [#32] California
    [#21] Oregon @ Oregon St -- hard to believe that just a few weeks ago Oregon was #8

    The Big Ten will showcase this week's only fight among two Top 10 schools:

    9/28 (Sat)
    [#10] Michigan @ [#1] Penn State

    Think this week I will be watching a lot of football instead.
