Hawaii rallies to beat Pacific in 5

By Ann Miller

Ninth-ranked Hawaii got hammered early, then hammered back Saturday to hand Pacific its third consecutive five-set loss, 14-25, 22-25, 25-16, 25-14, 15-11.

The Big West volleyball match was played before 5,944 at Stan Sheriff Center.

The Rainbow Wahine’s resiliency allowed them to overcome their worst set loss of the season to open the match and their first 0-2 deficit. They are 17-2 overall and 10-0 in conference heading into their next road trip.

Emily Hartong rallied from another slow start to lead Hawaii with 20 kills. Ashley Kastl had her second straight double-double (11 kills, 15 digs) and freshman Jade Vorster added 13 kills and eight blocks, hitting .650.

Pacific (17-5, 5-4) was led by Jennifer Sanders (14 kills) and Kat Shulz (15).

That was awesome and would have been so easy minus the first hour of volleyball. But the way it went down, down then up, up, and up made it another classic Wahine vs. Pacific match to remember. I'm glad that we tamed the Tigers and turned them into Tabby Cats near the end. And I hope that we have Jane back for round two and beyond. Good job, Wahine team, because it did take a team this time to turn back a team that looked like they were going to ruin the night for Hawaii. I also was intrigued by the subbing that had Tuaniga playing right side for two rotations? but it did work for the Wahine.
