Watched a replay of U.S. Bulgaria from May 25 last night. K.Shoji came in to set in place of Christenson in Set 2, after the U.S. dropped Set 1. Was on OC 211. Anyway, broadcasters has some nice things to say about Kawika and Erik, how they were from one of the first families of volleyball, mentioning Dave’s long career at UH. They also discussed the stiff competition for the setting spot that will be ongoing through the 2016 Olympics with Shoji, Christenson, James Shaw and Ryan Ammerman. Shoji the shortest at 6-3, the other 3 range from 6-6 to 6-8.
Others on the World League roster pool with Hawaii ties are Futi Tavana and Alfee Reft.
