Warriors keep volleyball playoff hopes alive


Sophomore opposite Brook Sedore put down 19 kills and sophomore middle Taylor Averill added 13 as No. 13 Hawaii downed UC San Diego 25-20, 15-25, 25-21, 25-23 tonight in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation volleyball match in La Jolla, Calif.

The Warriors (11-16, 9-14 MPSF) remained alive in the hunt for the eighth and last MPSF tournament playoff spot. Hawaii needs to beat UC San Diego again Saturday and have Cal State Northridge (11-14, 9-14) lose at Long Beach State (21-7, 17-6).

The Warriors were without their two leading outside hitters, freshman Siki Zarkovic and sophomore JP Marks. Zarkovic, injured during practice last week, was available to play if needed.

Marks, a German national, did not make the road trip over questions regarding his eligibility. 

Carl Eberts led the Tritons (7-20, 4-19) with 13 kills.
