HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The No. 5 ranked Hawaii beach volleyball team took down No. 19 TCU this morning at Manhattan Beach Pier in California by a 4-1 margin, but dropped a five-set thriller against No. 4 Florida State later in the day, 3-2.

After splitting the first two matches, Paige Dreeuws and Pani Napoleon won in straight-sets against the Horned Frogs before Ari Homayun and Julia Scoles followed suit with a 21-14, 17-21, 15-8 win over Taylor Bradley and Claire Doyle (TCU) to put the series away.

Against Florida State, the SandBows took a 2-1 lead with wins from Morgan Martin and Amy Ozee and Homayun and Scoles.

The Seminoles roared back, however, and it came down to Emily Maglio and Hi'ilawe Huddleston, who fell short against Alaina Chacon and Madison Fitzpatrick.

The Wahine will be back on Sunday against No. 9 Florida International (6:00 a.m. HT) and No. 6 LSU (10:00 a.m. HT).
