I was able to catch up with Kanani Danielson before dinner at the 2018 UH Sports Circle of Honor induction ceremony. (Pictured with Coach Chris McLachlin)
She is working and coaching JV volleyball at Punahou.
Also was at her table and got to reconnect with her family. Wonderful evening at the Stan Sheriff Center. She is now one of 12 volleyball players inducted. Said she was very humbled and surprised by her selection. Thought she hadn’t been away long enough.
Someone asked about ESPN3 replay. Here is the link for UH’s five-set comeback win over UC Irvine.
Big West weekly awards came out. UCSB’s Lindsey Ruddins POW (McKenna Granato nominated), UCSB’s Emilia Petrachi the DPOW (Tita Akiu again nominated)
Somewhat surprised that Granato didn’t receive the award. Ruddins pretty much the UCSB’s entire offense. IMHO Hawaii has a more varied attack and Granato was the most outstanding of that.
