Hawaii junior middle Olivia Magill set a school record en route to being named the Big West Women’s Volleyball Player of the Week Monday.

The 6-foot-1 transfer from Arizona also was selected Most Outstanding Player of the Hawaiian Airlines Wahine Volleyball Classic after averaging 3.38 kills and 1.92 blocks per set, while hitting .440 (44-7-84) in three matches.

Her record-setting performance came in a four-set win over St. John’s, where she broke the Rainbow Wahine rally scoring mark for blocks in a 4-set match with 12.  Magill added 15 kills to secure the double-double, and hit .538 for the match with just one error in 26 attempts.

Magill opened the tournament by helping UH to a 4-set victory against New Mexico with 11 kills on .500 hitting, adding seven block assists.  She had another strong performance in a 5-set defeat to No. 22 Oregon, with 18 kills on .333 hitting to go along with six blocks.

Outside hitter Kalei Greeley was nominated for Freshman of the Week and senior libero Sarah Mendoza for Defender of the Week. They lost out to Fullerton’s Niki Withers and the Beach’s Tyler Jackson, respectively.
