New Wahine commit?

January 17th, 2013
By

thank you for the link. Just catching up on a few things.

First, appreciate all the kind thoughts regarding my mom. She is getting better but still has a long road to travel back to wellness. The nice thing is my sister-in-law has been an angel for the past few months and mom has been in good hands in the rehab facility.

Now about the commit.  Kalei Greeley’s club … Rancho Valley, has posted that she has committed to UH for Fall 2014. She was the CIF Div 2AA Player of the Year as a junior at King High in Riverside.

RVVC is in San Bernardino.

She is a 6-3-ish middle turned opposite. very athletic from what I’ve read.

In the state final in November she led the team to the championship with 29 kills and 23 digs in the final.

not sure of the Hawaii connection with her name. perhaps someone knows. Her folks played Basketball at UC Riverside (dad both at UCR and USC).

    I looked online and it appears that King lost the state division II championship final this past november.

    I think we scored a real gem here. Good all around player. Hope we start hearing about more committing soon….Thanks Cindy!

      Thank one of the other bloggers who posted. just followed their link.

    Kalei Greeley has some smart coaching in high school. The coach saw a potential, as Hartong with Shoji, to convert her to a OH from a middle from her soph year, knowing that great success in D1 is being a 6 rotation player. Her stats shows she is accomplishing that with her dig numbers. Now if the coaches can sign up a couple more Hartongish gals in November 2013 UH should be in great shape in the aftermath of all the girls graduating in 2014.

    Hopefully Taylor Agost the high leaping middle and Brooke McDermott the all around outside are next.

    • vballfreak808 January 17, 2013 at 10:01 pm

      I hope Hawaii gets both of them. I just saw a video on McDermott and she has great lateral movement, speed, and is really athletic. She would be a nice addition to the Wahine.

      If Hawaii lands Agost, McDermott, and Greeley then we will have three 6’0-6’3 players that can play outside or middle. I only know about Greeley playing back row but Agost has a nice float serve. Also hope Jade’s sister comes as well.

      • warriofan January 17, 2013 at 10:06 pm

        Greeley is impressive in the backrow go watch the video of her high school team, posted by “yay”. I think I am more impressed than her as a junior than I was when I watched Croson as a junior…

        I really like Mcdermott too, she reminds me a bit of Jordan Burgess and not just because they are both from Florida.

        • warriofan January 17, 2013 at 10:07 pm

          I want to add Greeley also looks taller than 6′ 2.

          • windtalker January 18, 2013 at 12:31 pm

            She could pass for Jennifer Hamson’s younger sister.

          • warriofan January 18, 2013 at 8:23 pm

            I don’t see the resemblance with Hamson.

          • blindmice January 19, 2013 at 12:19 am

            I do.

          • warriofan January 19, 2013 at 7:39 pm

            It’s also really annoying that they made Taylor Crabbe look like a Player of the year. The blocking is just so bad.

  • warriofan January 17, 2013 at 11:36 pm

    BTW i am soo happy san diego state and Boise backed out of the big west, now the wahine can schedule teams that can help the rpi… get those sec, big east and acc teams out here.

  • Grammy January 18, 2013 at 8:56 am

    Good news regarding your Mom, hope she only gets better.

    As for new commit, from her name to her size, she seems like a fit for Coach Dave and Wahine team. I will hope she rises her game to help fill the Wahine’s Concept/needs and enjoys her time here as so many before her have. Welcome to Volleyball Paradise – Hawaiian Style, Kalei! And of course, Go Wahine!

    Tayler Higgins is 2012 Mizuno/Volleyball Girls’ High School All-American Second Team

  • rnr January 18, 2013 at 12:01 pm

    This is certainly stupendous news – what a great recruit!!! Excited for fall 2013 and for the upcoming new recruits.

  • KiMo January 18, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    What happened to that girl from Aotearoa? Is she not in the mix now? Did she commit to Minnesota?

    • warriofan January 18, 2013 at 8:40 pm

      She is a 2013 recruit and UH doesn’t have a scholarship for her I think.

  • Lanaiboy January 18, 2013 at 2:17 pm

    Change of subject but three Hawaii girls made the Mizuno All American Volleyball team. Carly Kan, 1st team; Tayler Higgins, 2nd team; and Pomai Recca, 3rd team. Congratulations to all!

  • vballfreak808 January 18, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    The Warriors let another one get away. They lose 3-2 and 16-14 in the fifth but they also had a match point.

    • warriofan January 18, 2013 at 8:22 pm

      Ugh they completely blew set 2 as well, they were up by like 8-9 points. and ended losing it 25-23…

    • warriofan January 18, 2013 at 8:38 pm

      Great game by Davis Holt and Nick West but Marks goes back to hitting in the zeros.. Olsen hasn’t been hitting good either.

  • jmy January 19, 2013 at 5:44 pm

    Down big time in the first set…Maybe Charlie Wade should consider starting Timmerf instead of Marks…

  • jmy January 19, 2013 at 5:48 pm

    Beach hitting .769; UH hitting .000…

  • jmy January 19, 2013 at 5:56 pm

    Beach wins Set 1, 25-14. UH hit .040, Beach hit .591…Pretty much says it all…

  • jmy January 19, 2013 at 6:23 pm

    UH was ahead 17-16, lost it 25-18…

  • KiMo January 19, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    So now that Boise & SDSU are staying in the MWC, does that mean Dave is gonna schedule 4 more OOC games to fill the void?

    • warriofan January 19, 2013 at 7:32 pm

      Yep.

    • Cindy Luis January 20, 2013 at 8:24 am

      believe that the original scheduled only included SDSU.the only thing this would do would be 2 more games, which allows you 3 3-team tournaments and 1 extra match.

  • jmy January 19, 2013 at 6:49 pm

    UH down 22-16 in the third…

  • warriofan January 19, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    Getting swept by Long Beach in a series for the second straight year is not okay!

    • jmy January 19, 2013 at 8:05 pm

      Agree…Maybe they can beat Pepp next week…They’ve always played pretty well against the Waves…

  • Dedicatedfan January 19, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    Fire Wade already enough is enough .
    Gibson Arnold needs to be let go as well, hire coaches that can win.

    • karmady January 20, 2013 at 5:59 am

      Jim Donovan didn’t exhibit the best judgement during his reign at UH, did he?

    • jmy January 20, 2013 at 8:05 am

      If Wade doesn’t have a good season, I have a feeling that this might be his last year at head coach…I hope he can turn things around…

  • Jake January 20, 2013 at 4:48 am

    Heard that Hagins is no longer on the team or at UH.Anyone else hear the same?

    • haleiwacrossfitter January 20, 2013 at 9:04 am

      That would be disappointing. She pushed the middles for playing time and I could actually see her starting over Kalei with a spring session under her belt while Kalei is playing basketball.

  • internet sucker October 17, 2014 at 4:34 pm
