UH beach volleyball wins Queens Cup – KHON2








HONOLULU – The No. 6 University of Hawai’i women’s beach volleyball team took home the First Foundation Queen’s Cup Saturday at Queen’s Beach after a pair of wins, including a thrilling victory over Loyola Marymount in the title match. The Rainbow Wahine swept San Jose State, 5-0, in the semifinals before out-dueling a very game LMU squad, 3-2.
 
The SandBows moved to 23-7 on the season after going a perfect 5-0 during the tournament and maintained their winning momentum. UH has now won 11 of its last 12 matches.
 
UH started the day with a 5-0 win over the Spartans (11-12). That win set up a title match with LMU (22-10), a 5-0 winner themselves in its semifinal versus Washington. The ‘Bows got the best of the Lions, 3-2, on Saturday and for the second straight day the team’s would play down to the wire. Four of the five courts went to a third set.
 
LMU took a 2-1 lead which included an impressive 21-13, 21-18 win by Sara Kovac and Jessie Prichard over Morgan Martin and Pani Napoleon on the No. 3 court. Kovac and Prichard did what no other pair could this year in defeating the UH duo. The loss ended Martin and Napoleon’s 20-match win streak – the third longest ever at UH – as well as the pair’s school-record of 40 consecutive sets won.
 
UH knotted the score at 2-2 after Ari Homayun and Julia Scoles took down Reka Orsi Toth and Savannah Slattery 18-21, 21-16, 15-10 on Court 2. The match came down to Court No. 5 and Paige Dreeuws and Sofia Russo would come through, avenging a loss to Erin Martin and Paige Panter the day prior with a 27-25, 19-21, 15-8 victory to clinch the dual and tournament championship.
