Rainbow wahine take down Nevada

MANOA (HawaiiNewsNow) - The number seven. The Rainbow Wahine volleyball team hoped this number would prove to be lucky for them on Friday night.

A win against WAC foe Nevada would mean seven straight for Hawaii.

This match was a homecoming for four Nevada players, Kylie Harrington, Kelly Chang, Tatiana Santiago and Elissa Ji.

It also included one of the longest rallies in Wahine volleyball history, with 65 touches before Nevada finally took the point.

The rally lasted a minute and 16 seconds. That's when Lindsay Baldwin put the ball to rest.

And in the end, Hawaii swept Nevada, 19, 18 and 20. Kanani Danielson led the way with 12 kills.

The number five ranked Wahine are now 12-1 and 2-0 in WAC play.
