Maglio at AA banquet; Warriors sign 3

A couple of pictures from today’s AA banquet in Kansas City, Mo.
Second pictures a little ironic. Ah Mow-Santos’ last match as a Wahine was when Hawaii lost to Stanford with Kerri Walsh as a freshman.

As for the men, mention Hogland last month. Other two are Devon Johnson, and Filip Humler for the 2019 season.

From UH:
The 6-foot-5 Hogland is a two-sport standout at ‘Iolani School He led the Raiders to a semifinal appearance in the HHSAA Division I tournament last year and was named to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Fab 15. Hogland also helped Outrigger to a national championship last summer at Junior Nationals.

Johnson, a 6-foot-7 outside hitter is a member of the Westlake Village High School team and the Bones Volleyball Club. Last summer, he was a member of the gold medal-winning team representing the region of Southern California at the USAV High Performance Championship. oldest sister played volleyball at UC Davis.

This summer, Humler, a 6-foot-7 outside hitter, helped the Czech Republic to a seventh place finish at the 2017 Youth World Championship and a European Championship. His VK Jihostroj Ceske Budejovice club team also captured the Czech National Championships in 2017.

In addition to Hogland, UH has secured verbal commitments from two additional local players for the 2018 season, continuing in Wade’s priority to recruit the state of Hawai’i.

    Just curious, why was Kerri Walsh-Jennings in the pic with Robyn and Emily? Was she a presenter or host or something?

  3. Jared December 15, 2017 4:35 pm

    Who are the other 2 local guys who verbally committed? I wonder if John Stanley Jr is one of them.

    Apparently, there are talented athletes who were either missed or dismissed by the rating services. You just have to find them. (Ditto the NCAA All Americans.)

    Moreover, the critical area of “passing” is often overlooked. It usually makes or breaks a team.

    I was surprised that the National Player of the Year was Kathryn Plummer despite the fact that she’s only a sophomore and that Stanford lost in the semifinal. I had expected Kelly Hunter, the setter of Nebraska, a senior, to win that award as she orchestrated the successful Nebraska offense and also scored the last point. Isn’t Kathryn Plummer the first sophomore to win this award? Even Misty May had to wait till her junior year to win that award and she won it also in her senior year.

    As for the irony of Kerri Walsh in the same photo as Robyn Ah-Mow due to the 1996 championship loss. it wasn’t Ah Mow’s fault and I don’t know whether Kerri Walsh was the MOP of the national championship final. I only remember that the loss was attributed to Angelica Lindquist (can’t spell her name right) whose performance was diminished by a serious flu. I felt so sorry for her.

    For those whom criticized RAMS for her attire @games, she’s dressed well for this… who cares how she suits up for the games, right, if she can bring home a championship, she can dress how ever she wants to. Pau.

    Like the men’s recruitment pool, 2 more locals for 2018, exciting. Who dem?

  8. Warriorfan December 15, 2017 8:42 pm

    Wow Filip Humler looks like a very nice get. He hits really hard.

  9. Lori December 15, 2017 10:24 pm

    Very nice pictures.

    #4 Our very own TEEE Williams won that award as a Sophomore and shared that award as a senior with Tara Cross, as Teee Williams-Sanders.

  11. ManoaFan December 15, 2017 11:29 pm

    #4 Also Greichely Cepero from Nebraska also won that as a Sophomore. Going back to Teee… who knows, she was so good maybe she could have won it as a freshman, but she was academically ineligible.

    Ferd’s article today pointed out the disadvantages of the non-power five schools in recruiting
    ” The game changer is the big TV contracts that fatten the coffers of the Power Five. They enable a lot more than their football and basketball teams these days. The moolah trickles down to volleyball, softball and other teams as well.
    That’s money to invest in attracting the top coaches and bucks to build or improve the best facilities and underwrite recruiting the top-shelf recruits. And, it shows more and more every year.”
    I see only BYU of the non-power teams five made it to the 3rd round of the NCAA tourney this year.

    Wow ! According to Volleyball Mag Haley fired as USC head coach. All the old timers is slowly going. Penn State and Texas have coaches ready for retirement too.

  14. Big Island volleyball fan December 16, 2017 1:19 pm

    12. That was a surprise. Until I read the Volleyball Magazine online, I thought that maybe he was fired since his team could not make it to the Final Four when they had so many opportunities to do so. Now I found out it’s because of a contentious relationship with an athletic director and ageism. So he’s 74, one of the oldest if not the oldest volleyball coach. Russ Rose, the Penn State coach, is much younger than him so it doesn’t look like he’s retiring any time soon. Neither the Texas coach.

    Thanks for sharing the photos Cindy. Maglio looks very happy! What a great experience for her. She represents Hawaii well. Hopefully the exposure helps attracts more recruits and motivates current team to continue to work hard!

  16. Brandon December 16, 2017 1:28 pm

    Jerrit elliot is absolutely NO WHERE close to retiring lmao.

  17. Ki December 16, 2017 2:07 pm

    Sucks what happened to Mick. This may be an opportunity for Robyn to pursue some of SC’s recruits or maybe even transfers

  18. blunite December 16, 2017 2:53 pm

    Hopefully the Texas coach remains, it balances the playing field.

    Banking on UH getting the missing pieces to make a deeper run.

  19. warriorfan December 16, 2017 4:21 pm

    Lets get Brooklyn Schirmer lol

  20. H-Man December 16, 2017 5:24 pm
