Following the match, four Rainbow Wahine seniors – Angel Gaskin, Ari Homayun, Hi'ilawe Huddleston and Emily Maglio were honored as part of Senior Night festivities.
While Senior Night is usually a unique and once in a collegiate career experience, the same couldn’t be said for Magliom, a fifth-year senior who has been through these festivities on two separate occasions with the indoor and beach volleyball squads.
“(I’ve) been through a couple already, but yeah it’s always an emotional time. It’s the end of something great and it;’s been an amazing five years here. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. I wouldn’t want to spend my college years anywhere.”
For Homayun, she couldn’t have written a better script to end her college career.
“It’s been the best four years of my life,” she said. “I wouldn’t trade this experience for the world and I’m so sad that it’s coming to an end but I’m so happy t6hat I got to experience all of this.”
