Congrats to Averill 1st team; Sedore second

Averill on first team along with Taylor Crabb (Punahou, Beach); Micah Christenson (Kamehameha-USC), Josh Taylor (Punahou-Pepperdine)

Second team to Sedore along with Henry Cassiday (Punahou-USC)

very surprised Zarkovic didn’t get anything.

Sander of B YU POY, Yoder of USC FOY

And very interesting to see the number of second-generation players :

Crabb, Yoder, Shaw, Hanley … i’m sure I’ve missed a few.

    It was a tight race between sanders and Taylor. I personally felt sanders deserved it though. And I’m also shocked siki didn’t get anything. He IMO deserved at least HM, and I had him on second team.

  2. Tiki808 April 17, 2014 12:58 pm

    Averill 6-3 on first team along with Taylor Crabb 6-0 (Punahou, Beach); Micah Christenson 6-3 (Kamehameha-USC), Josh Taylor 6-3 (Punahou-Pepperdine)

    Good! All MPSF teams consist of players 6-5 and above. I am not sure if someone else questioned this 1st team All MPSF lineup.

  3. Brandon April 17, 2014 1:03 pm

    2. What? How could the mpsf teams be all 6-5 and above when half of the people you listed aren’t 6-5. You need help

  4. setaone April 17, 2014 1:21 pm

    3. NONE of the players Tiki listed are above 6-5!

  5. Brandon April 17, 2014 1:27 pm

    4. Just noticed that lol. Well my point still stands. He makes zero sense

  6. Cubicle1126 April 17, 2014 2:50 pm

    congrats to averill and sedore!

  7. Cubicle1126 April 17, 2014 2:54 pm

    is tiki808 saying the mpsf had heights listed incorrectly? the mpsf release at the link above doesn’t list player heights.

    averill is listed at 6’7″, christensen listed as 6’6″, and josh taylor at 6’7″ on their respective schools’ rosters.

    unless tiki808 has info on their actual heights or is referencing something else completely?? hard to tell with him … oh well.

  8. Ron April 17, 2014 3:12 pm

    Yoder may be third generation. They have been around San Clemente/USC a long time.

  9. formerlywarriorfan April 17, 2014 4:15 pm

    Congrats to Taylor and Brook, hopefully this means Taylor will be first team all american. He deserves it.

  10. Hot April 17, 2014 8:23 pm

    A lot of these top players are Hawaii products.

  11. setaone April 18, 2014 9:56 am

    Sand VB appears to have beaten LBSU 4-1. Hopefully this solidifies their spot at Nationals.

  12. Turfwar April 18, 2014 9:59 am

    Hope Wade has another big outside and a middle coming next year. Heard he is going after a good sized setter. Maybe Siki’s dad can help recruiting with his connections to his country’s junior national teams.

  13. FormerlyWarriorfan April 18, 2014 10:06 am

    Way to go wahine beach bows, taking care of business!

    I know that the Wahine swept IVC and I’m just assuming that they did the same to Cal Poly who isn’t very good.

    Amazing match. Swept all the matches they won and the one match they lost was a three setter. Go bows!

    From the UH athletics website. Thank you LC for grabbing the UH-LBSU results

    HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. – The No. 3 University of Hawaii sand volleyball team won its final three dual matches of the regular-season at the Big West Challenge in a performance that put UH in position for its first-ever team appearance into the AVCA National Championship. The Rainbow Wahine blanked Irvine Valley College and Cal Poly, while picking up a key win over No. 5 Long Beach State Friday in Huntington Beach.

    With an 18-3 overall record—and its only losses to the top two teams in the nation in USC and Pepperdine—UH is poised to gain an invitation to the third annual AVCA Sand Volleyball National Championship to be held May 2-4 in Gulf Shores, Ala. The official announcement for the six- team field will be made on Monday. The field will be made up of the top two teams from each the West and Southeast regions, the Atlantic Sun champion and an at-large selection for which UH would likely qualify.

    The Rainbow Wahine were its usual dominant self with a pair of 5-0 wins over Cal Poly and IVC and a 4-1 win over Long Beach State. UH won in straight sets in 14 of the 15 matchups during the day. In the most critical match of the day, UH rose to the challenge, taking down a 49er squad also vying for a spot in the nationals as the defending champions. It marked UH’s second win over LBSU this year after also defeating the 49ers, 3-2, in Honolulu on March 7, the opening day of the season.

    The Big West Challenge will continue tomorrow with pairs competition as tandems will be broken up into three separate single-elimination brackets.

    Amazing! Every single match being a sweep with the one loss coming in three close sets. The wahine surely proved they deserve the spot and they’re one of the best teams in the nation

  25. Warriors!! April 19, 2014 12:26 am

    Great to hear the Wahine had a great weekend! On to Bama to win a National Championship! It’s amazing to see what Wong and Co have done in such a quick amount of time

  26. Cubicle1126 April 19, 2014 2:50 pm

    great job by the wahine … not just for winning, but winning decisively. a trip to nationals is well-earned and well-deserved. great job by coach wong on the progress made in just a few short years of the program!
