Hawaii is adding Oregon junior hitter/libero Brooke Van Sickle, the third former Duck who will be on the Rainbow Wahine roster in fall.
Dad Gary played for the Rainbow Warriors (1988-90) and mom Lisa (Bragado) played for Hawaii Pacific and was on the AVP. Brooke missed most of 2017 (played in six matches) after a season-ending injury.
Van Sickle played in 67 career matches spanning three seasons. She started 30 matches and played in all 31 matches as a freshman. Last year as a redshirt sophomore, Van Sickle appeared in 30 matches and finished third on the team with 31 service aces, fourth with 252 digs. She also posted 108 kills.
She joins Kyra Hanawahine and Jolie Rasmussen from Oregon. The other transfer is Bailey Choy who graduated from Utah.
Here’s UH’s press release.
Been on vacation.
One thing announced last week: Former Wahine Tara Hittle was named the new assistant at Pepperdine.
A belated thank you for all the kind words regarding my AVCA award. Very honored.
