  • This is the year. The height, the power, the hitters, the setter and when the passing becomes more consistent the Wahine can get to the final four and win it all. The team is forming and coming along. It is noticeable that they have multiple talented players, which many teams of the past did not have.

    • Yup, Granato, who Cindy raved about a few days before, had an AWESOME night with two powerful kills in a tense 3rd game with everything on the line against a fearsome opponent.
