Very early practice but the norm as they start school, 6-8 a.m. then lifting
Back in Gym 1. Three nets, a lot of by-position drills.
Kalei Adolpho rolled right ankle stepping on someone’s foot. about halfway through practice. we joked that it was the new ice bucket challenge as she was icing it laying down. didn’t look serious. she was able to put weight on it and walked out.
Asked Shoji about starting lineup. He said probably tomorrow. But givens are Higgins, Adolpho, Magill.
Said he was still undecided about libero. Mendoza and Kahakai, but who ever didn’t play L would be on the court as the first DS in there.
As for outside … likely Passi on the right and then Manu-Olevao, Long, Greeley. not in that order. said Greeley one of the best passers on the team and could see time in the back row. She hits well from the 3-meter. Obviously Greeley will start Sunday, along with Long and Passi since Manu-Olevao and Taylor are out.
Ljungquist dropped by again. She is here through Saturday and will be at first match. She went golfing for the first time last Saturday, went out with former assistant coach Kari Anderson Anbrozich. And then she and Ah Mow-Santos were hiking Diamond Head this morning.
