Dig Pink tonight Hawaii 3, Cal Poly 0
I like the pink uniforms. Shoji has forgotten about ordering them in time. Finally put Ah Mow-Santos in charge.
Looks like they went back to the non-Mendoza starting lineup. Longo, Taylor, Vorster, Manu-Olevao, Uiato, Hartong, Adolpho.
Hawaii’s passing much better tonight, they seem looser and it seems that Cal Poly’s attack is slower and they aren’t hitting as hard as UCSB did last night. Helping out the Wahine a bit tonight is they already had 3 SEs. UH up 15-9. Vorster 2-0-2. Still think they are going to Hartong when they don’t need to. but she is 5-0-8. You might see Kastl earlier tonight. Manu-Olevao is 2-3-8.
UH is making the off plays that they didn’t last night. They are up 18-11. TO CP. Mustangs hitting 208, Wahine 375.
Cindy, are they going to auction off the pink jerseys like a few years back?
The wahine look a lot more energetic tonight. Go Bows.
Don’t know if they will do that. They obviously should.
UH wins Set 1 25-17.
Hartong 5-0-10, Taylor 3-0-4, Manu-Olevao 3-4-10, dolpho 3-2-6, Vorster 2-0-2. Hitt 333 to CP’s 188. UH 1 block, CP 0. Wahine 17-7 edge in digs, Uiato with 7, Longo with 4.
Really impressed with how Uiato is playing tonight. Seems like everyone is back on their game. Think we sometimes forget that Taylor is just a freshman. She is 5-1-8. UH up 7-2 in Set 2. TO CP.
Adolpho has nice hands for a ‘big girl.’ Did a very nice back set. UH up 12-6
Hartong from the left didn’t even leave her feet. hit sharp angle cross court. Taylor with her 6th kill. it’s 14-7
Nice solo stuff by Manu-Olevao on the slide by cal poly. 17-9
Is it an option to play Taylor on the left and let Goodman be the opposite? Manu-Olevao and Kastl are interchangeable, both extremely error-prone.
Hartong with an ace, Taylor with her 7th kill. UH wins 25-16.
Anyone know why kawamura doesn’t play/serve anymore?
10. it is an option.
12. Kawamura played last night. got in 2 sets served 5 times, 1 SE. 0 ace
Wahine hit 467 in Set 2. CP 267
Taylor 8-1-11, Vorster 6-1-7, Manu-Olevao 7-4-17, Uiato 2-0-2, Hartong 8-1-17, Adolpho 3-2-9.
2 aces, both by Harton, 2 SE, both by Uiato 28 digs, 10 by Uiato. 3 blocks.
CP 0 aces, 5 SEs, 1 block Chelsea Hardin (‘Iolani) 7-1-16.
Cindy who does the stats for UH?
Is Lelepali playing Kawamura’s role? Kawamura needs to cut down on her errors. Hopefully, Shoji doesn’t let Long serve. I’d like to see her attack from the back row, but keep her away from the service line.
15. They have a stat crew that uses a computer stat program. not always the same people doing stats every night tho.
Hartong with another ace, her second of this serving rotation. UH up 7-2
Mustangs stuck in a bad rotation. Hartong still serving (8-0) it’s 12-2. TO Cal Poly.
I thought I wasn’t going to comment tonight but now I feel compelled to. I was thinking too bad Cal Poly didn’t come last night instead when Hawaii didn’t have much energy. They could have still beaten them. Tonight with their energy they would have been far more competitive with Santa Barbara. This time Shoji didn’t have the order right unlike the first week with Texas.
Shoji did not make the Big West schedule. He only agreed on the playing dates.
Kastl in. Vorster just set Uiato much to the crowd’s approval. it’s 20-9.
tickets 7314, turnstile 5659
Long in on the right. 22-10
Higgins in, Hartong & Uitao out. Ponce serves long. it’s 23-12
Kastl with the kill. it’s 24-13
Mustangs can’t return the ball. 25-13. Be back later
The defensive specialists need to keep their serve in. Kawamura, Ponce, Mendoza. Long had a nice night. 1 kill, 1 ace, 1 dig
I think Lelepali is the designated server now. She hasn’t made any service error in a long time and that is why she is in. Cal Poly did not present much a block tonight. Shorter than UCSB and less athleticism (they don’t jump too high). Hartong was extremely sharp with her serves tonight. Got lots of aces and caused Cal Poly lots of problems in passing. Vorster returned to form and had a nice night hitting-wise.
I like their uniforms. How about that kill Uiato had when Vorster set her. Shoji must not have been in a good mood,his Dodgers lost again today.
So Lelepali is sharing the middle server role with Kawamura? And Long, who used to share the spot with Kawamura, is now splitting time with Mendoza as the right side back row sub?
