Wahine falls one spot In AVCA Poll, Receives First-Place Votes

LEXINGTON, Ky. (HawaiiNewsNow) – The University of Hawai‘i women's volleyball team (24-1) received the most first-place votes of the season, but dropped one spot to No. 8 in the latest AVCA National poll.

The Rainbow Wahine fell one spot despite dropping just one set in a trio of wins this past week. The top five ranked teams from last week all lost matches as UCLA, Hawai‘i's lone defeat of the season, bolted from No. 6 to No. 1. Five matches were played between Top 5 opponents with No. 1 Nebraska losing to No. 8 Penn State and, in arguably the biggest upset of the week, No. 3 Illinois was swept by No.15 Minnesota.

Along with 12th-ranked Northern Iowa (24-1), the ‘Bows have the best winning percentage (.960) and more wins than any other Top 25 team. They are coming off a nine-match, 18-day, five-city stretch, going undefeated including three Western Athletic Conference road wins this past week.

Hawai‘i is undefeated in the WAC (12-0) having clinched the conference regular season title this past week for the 16th straight time.

UH hosts its final WAC regular season matches on Thursday, Nov. 10, against Louisiana Tech, and Saturday, Nov. 12 versus New Mexico State. Saturday's match with the Aggies will be senior night, as the Rainbow Wahine bid farewell to seniors Kanani Danielson, Chanteal Satele, and Alex Griffiths. Start time for both matches is set at 7:00 p.m.
