SandBows Split On Day 2 Of The Rainbow Wahine Classic

Posted: Updated:

HONOLULU – The No. 5 University of Hawai'i beach volleyball team split a pair of matches  on the second and final day of the Rainbow Wahine Classic at the Clarence T.C. Ching Complex, falling to No. 3 UCLA and defeating No 17 Stanford by identical 3-2 scores.
A day after beating UCLA and Stanford by a combined 9-1 count, the scores were much closer on Sunday. UH swept UCLA, 5-0, on Saturday, and the Bruins avenged the loss with a tight win over the SandBows. Each team picked up a pair of straight set wins and the No. 3 flight proved the pivotal one going a full three sets. Madi Yeomans and Elise Zappia outlasted Morgan Martin and Lea Monkhouse 21-13, 15-21, 18-16 to give the Bruins a 2-1 lead.

After the match was tied, 2-2, UCLA clinched the dual at the top of the order when Megan and Nicole McNamara took down Carly Kan and Laurel Weaver, 21-18, 21-16.
In the second dual of the day versus Stanford, UH bolted out to a 2-0 lead with wins on the No. 5 and 3 courts. But Stanford responded with wins at No. 4 and No. 1. It came down to the No. 2 flight as Ka'iwi Schucht and Emily Maglio secured the UH win with a 21-17, 21-16 victory over Morgan Hentz and Amelia Smith. Schucht and Maglio were magnificent over the weekend, going a perfect 4-0 over the weekend.
The Rainbow Wahine will next head to the road where they will have a another rematch with the Bruins, this time at UCLA on March 8. UH will also face LMU on the same day, before competing in the East Meets West Invitational, March 10-11 in Manhattan Beach, Calif.
