Sweep clinches tournament for No. 3 Hawaii

Junior hitter Stijn van Tilburg put down down 14 kills without an error and No. 3 Hawaii claimed the title of the inaugural Waikiki Beachcomber Classic men’s volleyball tournament with a 25-17, 25-16, 25-22 sweep of Thompson Rivers tonight at the Stan Sheriff Center.

The Rainbow Warriors didn’t drop a set in winning their second tournament at home. Junior setter Joe Worsley finished with 24 assists and a team-high four blocks, including two solo, en route to being named the most outstanding player.

Joining Worsley on the all-tournament team were Warriors van Tilburg, Dalton Solbrig and Tui Tuileta. Also named were Nemanja Komar of Academy United, Tim Dobbert from Thompson Rivers and Robert Bowling from Lees-McRae.

Dobbert had 15 kills for TRU out of the Canada West Conference. The match lasted 87 minutes and was considered an exhibition.

In the de facto third-place match early today, Peter Edwards put down 10 kills to lead Academy United of the National Volleyball Association over Lees-McRae of Conference Carolinas, 25-19, 25-17, 25-9.
