Rainbow Wahine sweep Wyoming
Wyoming has had no success against Hawaii in nine previous meetings.
Nothing has changed since the Cowgirls' last visit to Honolulu 12 years ago.
That Western Athletic Conference volleyball match lasted about an hour as the Rainbow Wahine rolled, with the Cowgirls totaling just nine points in three games.
Last night, No. 11 Hawaii again made quick work of Wyoming, needing only 84 minutes to complete a 25-15, 25-10, 25-18 sweep at the Stan Sheriff Center.
Redshirt freshman hitter Stephanie Ferrell, in her first career start, put down a match-high 13 kills as the Wahine improved to 3-2 overall, 2-0 in the Volleyball Challenge.
The tournament continues today with No. 12 Minnesota playing a doubleheader, taking on Cincinnati at 11 a.m. and Wyoming at 1 p.m. Admission is free.
The Challenge concludes tomorrow with the 5 p.m. match between Hawaii and Cincinnati.
"I think Cincinnati will have to play real well, shut down Hawaii's outsides," Wyoming coach Carrie Yerty said. "That will be tough." » Full story
