Hawaii women’s volleyball junior hitter Jolie Rasmussen has been ruled out to play in tonight’s match against Utah Valley because of a right ankle injury.

Rasmussen went down injured in the third set of Thursday night’s four-set victory over West Virginia. She collided with a Mountaineers player under the net and remained down in pain for several minutes before being helped off the floor.

Rasmussen, a transfer from Oregon, was named the AVCA national player of the week last week. She leads the No. 18 Rainbow Wahine (7-0) in total kills (96) and is first on the team in kills per set (4.17). She was listed by UH as “doubtful” this afternoon.

First serve against the Wolverines (2-6) is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Stan Sheriff Center.
