HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The No. 3 Rainbow Wahine beach volleyball team set a new record for consecutive victories earlier today with a pair of 5-0 shutouts of Cal State Bakersfield and CSUN.

With today’s shutouts in the books, the Wahine extended their win streak to 15 matches, surpassing the former mark of 13 set in 2015.

The last time the team lost came on March 10, and they haven’t looked like losing since.

Seven of Hawaii’s wins have come against ranked opponents and more than half (8) of the team's 15 straight wins have occurred on the mainland.  

With the pair of dual wins, UH pushed its record to 20-3 overall, the program's second-straight 20-win season and third all-time.

The SandBows conclude the Big West Challenge on Saturday with a trio of matches, including a pair of big matches vs. No. 5 Long Beach State and No. 6 Cal Poly. Hawaii will face Cal Poly (6 a.m. HT), followed by host Sacramento State (9 a.m. HT), before concluding the tournament against Long Beach State (3 p.m. HT).
