Chat with Deitre Collins

Got a chance to chat with her this morning before her practice in San Diego.
She’s looking forward to coming out this week. Said her team is very young, two starters out with injuries and that it’s a very tough tournament to open the season with.

She said she wished she could make it to alumnae matches but it has always conflicted with her season.

    At least, as the head of her own program, she can bring her team over to play. People here probably think of her more as a UH alum than as the HC of an opposing team.

    I don’t know why that would be. She has brought many of her teams to UH, from UNLV to SDSU two years ago.

    Cindy, did the “RAINBOW WAHINE” selection disappear under VOLLEYBALL, or am I wrongly remembering that it was available at some point?

    1. Mahalo Cindy for keeping us updated as we wait for the season to start.
    2. Deitre Collins is “all class” and we will always remember her as a player and coach.
    3. I know that I saw a picture/update about Jade V. yesterday – and was ready to reply to the first (rude) comment…Can’t find it now – however, wish her the best and she will be a great success in whatever she does!
    4. Echoing ‘ohana…Where did that drop-down go?
    and one more comment – Let’s go ‘Bows!!

    Cindy, just wondering what happened at Wednesday’s practice? Are you having the same problem as your counterpart ST, and having your post to into the Rainbow Wahine Twilight Zone, never to be seen again?

  12. 'ohanaInBellingham August 29, 2014 5:38 am

    Ehhh, no worries braddahs and sistahs: (@0:18)!

  13. Cindy Luis August 29, 2014 7:38 am

    6. nothing has changed as far as the lineup. Doesn’t mean it won’t change when the lineup sheet gets turned in
    11. Nikki’s been out, nothing really has changed with her. not cleared to practice, still undergoing treatment.

    Nikki will also miss matches next week according to Tiff Wells at ESPN 1420.

    I believe we will all see Greeley before Sunday. Dave will play Kalei Greeley before Sunday. Would not be surprised if Dave plays her at least 3 or 4 sets before Sunday. I do not believe Dave would just have her start on Sunday, without some court time before that.

  16. Cindy Luis August 29, 2014 9:33 am

    Pretty much a given since she hasn’t been cleared to practice. Even if she does next week, she won’t be game ready. Short week with matches Thurs, Fri & Sat.

  17. Cindy Luis August 29, 2014 9:36 am

    15. agree, been saying that. Mentioned it in today’s paper as well.
