Hawaii sweeps CSU Northridge in volleyball

Junior opposite Brook Sedore and senior hitter Jace Olsen each put down 10 kills and No. 11 Hawaii celebrated the return of senior middle Nick West in a big way, sweeping No. 13 Cal State Northridge 25-20, 25-15, 28-26 in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Friday night in Northridge, Calif.

West, missing the past three weeks with a broken finger, and junior middle Taylor Averill combined for 13 kills with no errors in 17 swings for the Rainbow Warriors (6-4, 4-3 MPSF). West was in on six of the team’s 12.5 blocks as Hawaii snapped a two-match losing streak.

Greg Faulkner led the Matadors (3-5, 3-4) with 10 kills in the 99-minute contest at the Matadome.

The teams meet again Saturday at 5 p.m. Hawaii time.
