HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - After averaging 3.17 blocks per set last week in a 3-0 stretch for the Rainbow Warrior volleyball team, middle blocker Patrick Gasman was named the Big West Conference Defensive Player of the Week.
Gasman is the second Warrior in a row to earn the weekly honor.
The California native recorded a career-high eight blocks against Saint Francis in a three-set sweep last weekend, accumulating 19 blocks over nine sets of play during the road trip.
Thanks to Gasman’s efforts on the defensive end, Hawaii is currently 8-0 on the season, marking the best start under head coach Charlie Wade and the best start to a season since 1996 when the ‘Bows began 13-0.
The Warriors are back home to take on Lincoln Memorial in a two-match, non-conference series on Friday, February 15th and Sunday, February 17th at the Stan Sheriff Center.
