Forgot to post this Sunday night
Former University of Hawaii All-American middle blocker Taylor Averill scored eight points in his first start to help the U.S. Men’s National Team sweep host China 25-20, 26-24, 25-18 in a Volleyball Nations League match Sunday in Ningbo.
Taylor, one of three players with Hawaii ties who competed, had four kills, two aces and two blocks. Setting for the U.S. was Kawika Shoji (‘Iolani) with younger brother Erik (Punahou) as the libero.
Also on the roster is setter Micah Christenson (Kamehameha), who did not play last week.
UH will have final Wahine volleyball schedule out this week with the finalization of contracts.
As for some of the comments on previous thread.
1. We never know if scoles may rejoin and play indoor.”
Yes, we do know. Scoles has made it pretty clear she has retired from indoor.
2. Sydney Kidd and Chloe Luyties will not be returning to the Sandbows next year.
Have not heard that but will check. Not surprised if it is true, more because of lack of playing time.
the best freshman the SandBows had this spring may have been Napoleon, who redshirted and had surgery.
3. wonder if there is a graduate transfer.
Haven’t heard of one but the roster is pretty stacked already with a lot of talent.
4. Taylor Borup, another one transferring out of UNC, and Scoles’ good friend.
6-4 OH also injured last season
Don’t think UH is in them mix.
