Hartong and Geena Urango def. former SandBow Katie Spieler and Delaney Knudsen, 21-19, 21-10
These quotes didn’t make it into the print edition Friday but from Hartong
On facing the top seeds: Always exciting to play against one of the best teams in the world and opportunity to compete at a high level. We’ve worked hard all season so now it’s time to just play free and leave it all on the court.
On Speiler: It’s always tough facing your friends especially when you know your fellow Rainbow Wahine wants it just a much as you do while being back here in Hawaii. Katie’s someone who has taught me a lot about playing on the beach. I learn from her every time I’m out there sharing the court whether we’re on the same side or across the net.

    Can anyone make heads or tails of the Washington-Wisconsin live stats? I think Washington won it in four, but it looks like something is flipped…Colorado State looking very impressive so far…

    Cindy – Any word on whether Rasmussen made the trip to TX with the team?

  3. Andrew September 19, 2019 5:58 pm

    Yes, Washington won in 4

    That win by UH is looking better and better as each week goes by

    1. et al
    scores update above
    USD-USC going 5

  5. jmy September 19, 2019 6:04 pm

    That win against St. John is looking pretty good too…

  6. Andrew September 19, 2019 6:24 pm

    I can’t remember a season when UH has been getting this much potential RPI help from their opponents

  7. Cindy Luis September 19, 2019 7:27 pm

    5. Agree. USD hanging on against USC will help as well

  8. jmy September 19, 2019 7:31 pm

    Interesting matches tomorrow (besides Baylor-Missouri) are Pepperdine-UCSB and Penn St.-Pitt…Pitt can prove whether or not it deserves that first place vote…

  9. kapakahi September 19, 2019 7:49 pm

    The Wahine’s victory over St. John’s looking better with St. John’s 3-1 upset over Oregon…..with Alexakou producing 28 kills in just 4 sets.

    3 Iolani alums and 1 Kahuku alum on the BYU & Utah rosters.

    True frosh Gracie Wee was in the rotation for BYU as DS, while true soph Saige Ka’aha’aina-Torres played S the entire match in Utah’s 5-1 attack (now that Bailey Choy transferred to be with the Home Team). True frosh L/DS Naya Dong didn’t get into the game for the Utes. Meanwhile, Kahuku redshirt soph Phoebe Grace is the starting MB for the 2nd straight season for the Utes.

    Doesn’t look like Jolie is traveling, at least to Baylor.

    Maybe she’ll fly up later for the LBSU series

  12. H-Man September 19, 2019 8:46 pm

    What happened to Cal Poly? They lost badly to No. 22 Colorado St. Yeah, St. John’s win over Oregon and Washington’s win over Wisconsin really helps Hawaii. Just would like to see the Wahine beat Missouri on Saturday. Baylor looks too strong. But I suppose never know.

    new thread up for Friday
    8. have listed the Top 25 schedule there
    12. Cal Poly now without Van Winden sisters now that Torrey out with concussion protocol. She may not play this season. Plus new head coach.
    Former Poly coach Sam Crosson has Cal undefeated at 9-0.
