Warrior alumni match Sunday, Beach commits

Someone asked about cost. I believe it is free.

The No. 3 Hawaii men’s volleyball team tunes up for its inaugural Big West Conference season with Sunday’s annual alumni match at the Stan Sheriff Center.

More than two dozen former Rainbow Warriors are expected to attend the event which begins at 5 p.m. with a skills competition between alumni and varsity players. Among those expected to play in the best-of-three match are All-Americans Mark Presho (1990-93), Tony Ching (2000-03), Brian Beckwith (2004-07) and Siki Zarkovic (2013-16).

An autograph session will follow at approximately 7 p..m. with both Warriors and Rainbow Wahine players.

Hawaii (8-1) opens conference play hosting No. 4 UC Irvine (10-3). Matches are at 7 p.m. Friday and 5 p.m. Sunday.

    Thanks, Warriorfan! I didn’t realize there was another Widener! I actually didn’t see the press release or anything when I first saw the mention. Thanks for clarifying.

    Autograph with the Wahine players??? Or do you mean Alumi players? Not sure anybody can get the Wahine together on a Sunday afternoon during their off season.

    6. UH said Wahine players. I was a bit surprised too since it is a 3-day weekend.
    Thanks for clearing that up about Widener. The one I was thinking about was done with eligibility last spring
