Vulcans were downed in straight sets by Azusa Pacific
AZUSA, Calif. – The Hawai’i Hilo women’s volleyball team embarked on a four-game Pacific West Conference journey to southern California and opened with a 3-0 loss to Azusa Pacific Monday evening at the Felix Event Center.
The Vulcans were dropped in straight sets by scores of 25-19, 25-11 and 25-17.
The Cougars controlled much of the match, led by junior Annaka Jorgenson’s 14 kills, two blocks and six digs.
Kamryn Childs (Syracuse, Utah/Syracuse HS) led the Vulcans in points with 10 kills. Sophia Charpentier (Rosemount, Minn./Rosemount HS) followed with six kills and three blocks – two solo – as Samara Cruz (Escondido, Calif./Escondido HS), Chloe Culanding (Chesapeake, Va./Grassfield HS) and Nikki Logan (Huntington Beach, Calif./Edison HS) each totaled five kills apiece.
Emerson Reinke (Arvada, Colo./Ralston Valley HS) had 28 assists as senior Kendall Kott (Shingle Springs, Calif./Ponderosa HS) returned to very limited action — only the last three points of the match — after having not played since the second game of the season.
Hawai’i Hilo fell to 1-10 overall and 1-4 in PacWest play while improved to an even 7-7 (3-2 PacWest).
The Vulcans continue their road trip with a match against Point Loma Nazarene (5-0 PacWest) this Wednesday, Sept. 28 followed by contests against Biola (Sept. 29) and Concordia Irvine (Oct. 1) to wrap-up the week.
APU remains at home to host Hawai’i Pacific and Chaminade this week.
