Wahine move up to No. 13
Moving ... up and out.
That sums this week for the Hawaii volleyball team.
The Rainbow Wahine (8-3, 2-0 Western Athletic Conference) moved up two spots to 13th in this week's CSTV/AVCA Coaches Top 25. They are also headed out on their first road trip of the season.
Hawaii left this evening for a week-long trek that includes WAC matches at Louisiana Tech on Thursday, at No. 25 New Mexico State on Saturday, and at San Jose State next Monday.
The one thing the Wahine know they need to bring along is a consistent passing game. It was there in Friday's win over Idaho but disappeared Saturday against Boise State.
"Passing is all mental," junior hitter Jamie Houston said. "We have to be ready to play, no matter who we're playing. If we play like we did Saturday, we're not going to be a very good team."
