    Our Condolescences and Deepest Sympathy to Coach Robyn and the entire Ah-Mow Ohana.

    I expect that Robyn Ah Mow will stay home and mourn her father’s death and the practices in Hilo will be canceled. Right? I need to know as I was going to attend, but now I don’t think it will happen. Sorry for her loss. My condolences, too.

    Condolences to Coach Robyn and her family.

    It’s probably too early to know one way or another regarding upcoming events being cancelled or not. Not everyone grieve the same way.

    Condolences to Robyn and her family and may the good Lord watch over her.

    Just finished watching alternately two five-game thrillers, UCLA vs. BYU and Long Beach vs. UCSB. First five-game match (win) for Long Beach while BYU was nearly upset on its own home court but came back down two sets to zero. So far, no one beat BYU or Long Beach on their home court this season and for a very long time, too.

    Lesson for UH men: competition will get much tougher. BYU, UCSB and Long Beach are all tenacious teams, never say die! UH will definitely be challenged more than ever in the rest of the season. Can’t take any more victories for granted, let alone three-set ones. We fans have been spoiled to the max. Better keep the pedal on the metal as commentators say, and grind it out. Good luck!

    Yo….UC Irvine did beat BYU in Provo (3-1) so BYU is not undefeated at home.

    6. Thanks for correcting me. Sorry for my error. But still Long Beach is undefeated at home this year.

    May the Lord watch over the Ah Mow Ohana and all their loved ones. May the Peace of the Lord be with them all!
