HONOLULU—The University of Hawai’i women’s volleyball team (4-5, 1-0 Big West) began defense of its back-to-back Big West titles with a sweep over UC Davis (6-6, 1-1 BWC), 25-22, 25-14, 25-21 on Friday night at the SimpliFi Arena at Stan Sheriff Center. Junior outside hitter Riley Wagoner led the Rainbow Wahine with her first double-double of the season putting down a match-high 12 kills with 11 digs. It marked her fifth double-digit kill match and the third time she’s put up 10+ digs in 2022.
UH’s middle blockers had a solid night on both sides of the net. Amber Igiede came through with 10 kills and added four blocks, two digs, two service aces and an assist for a stuffed stat line. She now has recorded 10+ kills in eight of UH’s nine matches this year. Fellow middle Tiffany Westerberg tallied a season-best .412 hitting percentage with eight kills and one error in 17 attacks. On defense Westerberg was in on a match- and season-high five blocks.
