Maglio helps Canada to bronze; Volleyball clinic with 3 Olympians Monday

Former Hawaii All-American middle Emily Maglio had five kills to help Canada defeat Brazil today for the bronze medal at the NORCECA Pan American Cup in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Maglio added an ace and a block in the 25-19, 25-20, 25-21 match that lasted 83 minutes at Palacio de Voleibol Ricardo Arias.

Think this got buried a week ago
Three members of the 2016 USA Men’s Volleyball Olympic team will be hosting a special one-day volleyball clinic in Honolulu on Monday at the ‘Iolani Gym.
Micah Christenson (Kamehameha ’11), Kawika Shoji (‘Iolani ‘06) and Erik Shoji (Punahou ’08) are back for a second year.
Clinic open to students entering 8 through 12. Portion of the proceeds benefiting Special Olympics Hawaii.

The clinic will be divided into two age groups and cost $60 per athlete. The first clinic will take place from 4:45-6:15 pm for students entering grades 8 and 9. The second clinic will immediately follow from 6:30- 8 pm for students entering grade 10 through 12. Both clinics will be capped at 60 participants. Christenson, the Shojis, and other volleyball coaches from the community will be sharing instruction on setting, defense, lessons on leadership, and some of their experiences from around the world.

Those interested in attending the clinic can email their name, age and grade level to Registration will remain open until registration space is filled.

    Go emily. Not sure if she’s starting. But getting PT is awesome fora first year national team player.

    Emily is starting in the MB2 position.

    Here’s a link to the Bronze Medal match:

    Mags started and played every match at MH2. She did well. Canada hadn’t won a medal at the PanAmCup since 2002, the 1st year of the Cup. It’s a young team with a lot of former NCAA talent. Lot’s of fun to watch.

    Congrats to Maglio! She was starting most of the tournament which is pretty cool.

    Sand Bows pick up a transfer from Utah, Kristen Abels! She only played indoor there so she should have four years of eligibility here.

    I say we got a players with lots of potential. Played OH in HS and Libero in college so she got the tools. Also got some volleyball smarts so I can see her being a starter in the near future.

    Go Emily! You make us proud carrying on your legacy like that!

    On another note, boy howdy I musta missed the memos on our current indoor Wahine Volleyball team cause I noticed they’re building up the roster page and I saw people I hadn’t seen before. I knew about Trinity Castaneda and Angel Gaskin, but didn’t know about Kamalei Krug (Fr), Reyn Akiu(Sr) and Sarah Liva(Sr). Anyone shed any light? Go Bows!

    Just reviewed updated Wahine VB roster and did not see Liliana Light listed. Is she coming?

  8. Ran July 17, 2018 8:06 am

    Liliana Light is at Santa Clara, I believe…

  9. aaaaa July 17, 2018 3:37 pm

    Is Leka Kiner-Falefa redshirting?

  10. Hot July 17, 2018 4:04 pm

    8. She’s not attending UH. Maybe on her final year, she’ll transfer to UH, if she’s eligible.

    6. She’s not.

    5. They’re walk-ons. Akiu was the Libero for Texas Tech before getting injured. Liva is a basketball player who played volleyball for Portland State in 2014-2015. She was a starting middle there. IIRC, Krug is a middle but may also play left or right at UH.

    Mahalos Hot for the update! I thought I read somewhere that Robyn may try Howling at oppo. Any truth to that?
    Can’t wait for the season to start!
    Go Bows!

    Anyone know if Skyler Williams has grown since enrolling as a freshman? Looking at recent photos, she really looks to be nearly 6-3.

  13. rabbit ears July 19, 2018 8:41 am

    #11 Hope she shares the secret with her teammates.

  14. Kahuna July 19, 2018 10:03 am

    Skyler was one of the players working the youth camp about a week ago and I didn’t really noticed her being any taller. I’m sure she got stronger with her going thru a strength and weight program but I doubt she is 6-3. She still looks shorter than Sophia who is listed at 6-2.

    Doesn’t matter how tall she is though. If she can get quicker and increase her vertical, she can be very effective.

  15. H-Man July 19, 2018 4:27 pm

    Thanks Ran, Hot and Kahuna for the feedback. Appreciate it much.

  16. Cindy Luis July 20, 2018 5:50 pm

    Sorry for the delay
    6. mentioned the walk-ons a while ago, particularly Akiu when going to national team tryouts with Granato and Ionia.
    7. No, mentioned a while back she was not.
    9. currently not in school. may be available in 2019
    as for who plays where, they have options to move players around. We’ll see if Howling ends up on the right.
