No. 1 UH volleyball team sweeps Stanford


The Stan Sheriff Center rocked, then the Hawaii volleyball team rolled to its 15th consecutive victory — 25-17, 25-22, 26-24 — over Stanford. 

A crowd of more than 5,000, the largest since 2010, watched the Warriors chisel the Cardinal’s defense for two sets, then score the match’s final four points for the sweep.

The top-ranked Warriors are 17-2 in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, .028 ahead of 18-3 UC Irvine, which defeated UCLA in four sets on Friday night.

"We don’t watch what Irvine does," said outside hitter Siki Zarkovic, who led the Warriors with 12 kills. "We watch what we do."

UH coach Charlie Wade said he does not bother to monitor the Internet for Irvine updates.

"No need," Wade said. "We know we control our own destiny. We have to do our own thing."

Irvine has two regular-season matches remaining. The Warriors have three left, including Saturday’s "senior night" rematch against the Cardinal.
