Hawaii senior hitter Emily Hartong was named the Big West women's volleyball player of the week today, the second time in four weeks for the All-American.

It was the third time a Rainbow Wahine had been honored by the conference this month. Senior setter Mita Uiato was cited last week.

Hartong averaged 4.18 kills and 3.09 digs en route to the MVP honors at the Shocker Volleyball Classic. The Rainbow Wahine defeated South Dakoto, No. 23 Creighton and host Wichita State.

Hartong hit .284 (46-13-116) for the tournament with double-figure kills in each match and double-doubles in two of them.  She had a match-high 20 kills on .311 hitting (20-6-45) while adding 16 digs and a pair of service aces against the Bluejays, helping UH to its third win over a ranked opponent this year.

She opened the tournament with 13 kills, 13 digs and three blocks against South Dakota.  Hartong hit .278 clip with 13 kills -- all coming in the first two sets -- in the finale against host Wichita State. 

She leads the Big West in kills per set (4.70) and has been named the MVP in three of Hawaii's four tournament appearances. Uiato was named the MVP of the other.
