Senior middle Emily Maglio put down a match-high 14 kills without a hitting error and Hawaii easily won its first road match, sweeping Cal State Fullerton 25-8, 25-9, 25-16 in tonight’s Big West volleyball contest in Fullerton, Calif.
The Rainbow Wahine (9-5, 3-0) set a new program record with 17 aces, including a career-high six by junior hitter McKenna Granato in winning their seventh straight. Granato tied a program-record held by 10 others; the last Wahine to have six aces was Emily Hartong in a four-set win over Wichita State in 2011. Amber Kaufman holds the program record with 11 in 2008
Hawaii ran its record to 37-0 against the Titans (4-12, 0-4).

Tyler Fezzes had seven kills for the Titans.
Hawaii had just two hitting errors, both coming in Set 2, and finished with a .494 hitting percentage. Fullerton, hitting .143, didn’t reach double digits in points until Meagan Carlson’s kill made it 18-10 in Set 3.
