Rainbow Wahine celebrate Sheriff Center's 25th Anniversary with a thrilling five set victory over UC Davis
Posted: / Updated:
Playing for the first time since October 4, Junior hitter Brooke Van Sickle returned from injury to provide a spark as the University of Hawaii women's volleyball team rallied to beat UC Davis on Sunday night, to celebrate the 25th anniversary celebration of the opening of the Stan Sheriff Center.
Van Sickle, who sat out the last four matches with what she described as a knee injury, entered the match in the third set and posted seven kills to go with eight digs in the final three frames as UH recorded a memorable 22-25, 21-25, 25-22, 25-17, and 15-12 win.
The victory takes UH to 16-3 overall, 6-2 in the Big West Conference. While the Aggies fell to 12-8, 4-3.
After the match, the Rainbows celebrated by cutting a white-strawberry cake with the 25th Anniversary of the Sheriff Center logo, which head coach Robyn Ah Mow shoved in the face of setter Norene Iosia, setting-off a short-lived foot fight on the teraflex.
Iosia had nine kills, nine digs and 23 assists.
Up next for the Rainbow Wahine, a two-match road trip starting with Cal State Fullerton on Friday.
