HONOLULU—University of Hawai’i head coach Robyn Ah Mow announced the addition of Chandler Cowell to the 2022 Rainbow Wahine roster. Cowell is a 5-10 outside hitter who has two years of eligibility left after beginning her collegiate career at St. Mary’s (CA).
Cowell is an athletic pin-hitter with a high volleyball IQ and valuable DI experience. In 2021, she had her best season as a Gael.

She finished third on the team with 20 service aces and 174 digs while logging 37 total blocks. She recorded 13 matches with at least 10 kills—including six-straight double-digit kill matches from Sept. 28-Oct. 28. Cowell also notched three double-doubles last season. For her career, Cowell leads St. Mary’s with 391 kills (2.43 k/s), 306 digs, 70 total blocks, 31 service aces, 36 assists and 460.5 total points (2.86 p/s).
