HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The top-ranked Rainbow Warriors volleyball team continued their streak of dominance, downing UC San Diego in two-straight matches in their first home series in Manoa.

The VolleyBows took down the Tritons 4-1 in Friday’s series opener 25-21, 23-25, 25-21, 25-15 in front of a cardboard crowd.

UH would struggle early, dropping set two, but would find a way to squeeze out the victory — UH’s Chaz Galloway tallied a career-high 13 kills, while Rado Parapunov notched 17.

In game two, the ‘Bows looked sharp, making easy work of UC San Diego sweeping the Tritons 25-15, 25-19, 25-21 to move to 9-0 on the season.

Maui’s Colten Cowell and Parapunov combined for 23 kills on the night, while Gage Worsley got a game-high 13 digs with three assists.

The ‘Bows stay at the Stan next week for a two-game series against Long Beach State on Friday and Saturday — first serve for both games is set for 7:00 p.m. Hawaii time on Spectrum Sports.
