From the Big West:
Junior Sky Williams captured her second Big West Women’s Volleyball Defensive Player of the Week award this season as her play at the net helped Hawaii clinch sole possession of the 2019 regular season conference title.
The 6-foot-1 middle blocker tallied 10 total blocks and averaged 1.67 kills per set to help the Rainbow Wahine sweep CSUN and Long Beach State on back-to-back nights.
Williams recorded a match-high six blocks (one solo) against the Matadors while adding five kills and two digs.In the regular season finale, Williams logged four blocks while hitting .500 with seven kills and two digs.
Williams was a force at the net, and a major reason UH edged CSUN and LBSU by a combined 19.0-8.0 margin in the blocks category.
