HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Rainbow Wahine beach volleyball team had a stellar regular season, highlighted by a Big West conference win.

Emily Maglio and Ka'iwi Schucht were named the Big West Pairs Team of the Year, Lea Monkhouse was named Freshman of the Year and last but not least, Jeff Hall was named Coach of the Year.

It marked the third straight year that Hawaii took home Pair Team and Freshman of the Year honors. This is the second time in three years that Hall has earned Hall Coach of the Year honors.

Maglio and Schucht have a 34-4 record on the season while setting a program record of 25-straight wins. T

Monkhouse set a new single-season win mark as a freshman (34) and has gone 19-0 this season when paired with sophomore Morgan Martin at the No. 2 flight.

In his fourth season at the helm of the SandBows, Hall has led the team to a school-record 35 wins, including 30 straight, heading into this weekend's NCAA Tournament.

He is the winningest coach in program history and has guided the 'Bows to three-straight Big West Tournament titles.
