Warriors swing and miss on road
Hawaii's two-match winning streak came to a screeching halt last night as the Warriors dropped their volleyball road opener at UC Santa Barbara. Theo Brunner had a match-high 21 kills and the Gauchos overcame a 24-10.5 deficit in blocks to win the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation contest 29-31, 30-26, 25-30, 30-21, 15-13.
The loss prevented Mike Wilton from picking up his 300th career win at Hawaii. He goes for the milestone again when the teams meet again tonight.
