Trivia question: Which Wahine hit 1.000?

September 29th, 2010

Hewitt (.917) broke Victoria Prince’s rally-scoring record of .867 (vs. SMU on Nov. 19, 2004), while falling one attempt short of becoming just the second UH player ever to have a perfect hitting night with at least 10 attempts.

No fair peeking into old media guides. I’ll give you a few minutes to put out guesses

    kenyatta lovelace, 13 kills in 13 attempts

  • dasource808 September 29, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    wait a minute, actually, not sure the number of kills but I’m pretty sure it was her

  • Cindy Luis September 29, 2010 at 7:30 pm

    Yes, Lovelace 12-0-12 vs. CSU Fullerton 92

  • Cindy Luis September 29, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    BTW, Ka’aihue now has 1158 digs. passed Teee Williams for No. 5. She should pass sister-in-law Kamana’o (1220) some time this season.

  • a-townboi September 29, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    cindy, who’s all-time digs leader for wahine and how much?

  • Cindy Luis September 29, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    that would be Kim Willoughby 1440.
    2. Tita Ahuna 1384
    3. Tara Hittle, 1315

    • a-townboi September 29, 2010 at 7:45 pm

      mahalos, wow i’m way off, i was guessing like watanabe. didn’t see much of willoughby’s years, but was she as much of a defensive threat as she was offensively. similar to defensive play of kanani?

      • Cindy Luis September 29, 2010 at 8:08 pm

        similar although i feel Danielson is the better passer

      • HH September 30, 2010 at 12:11 pm

        Impossible for Watanabe to make the all-time list for total digs. She only played a lot in her last two years. Barely saw the court as a freshman and was only used to serve as a sophomore. But I believe she holds the single season record for both digs per game (4.22) and total digs, which Ka’aihue is on pace to break.

        • Cindy Luis September 30, 2010 at 2:58 pm

          Watanabe holds the top 2 spots for Digs per set. 4.22 in 04, 4.15 in 05.
          Watanabe No. 1 in single-season digs with 481 over 34 matches.
          Ka’aihue has 226 in 14 matches

  • Cindy Luis September 29, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    Watanabe not even in the top 10.
    6. Eagye. 7. Cincerova. 8. Kahumoku. 9. Villaroman. 10. Eleneki.

    • Warrior-15 September 30, 2010 at 7:12 am

      So cool to see a MB (Eagye) still in the record books for digs…

  • Eric September 29, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    Kenyatta Lovelace hit 1.000% with 10 kills and no errors. But I remember, when I watched that match before, it was like 10 out of 11. Hmmm.

    • Cindy Luis September 30, 2010 at 2:58 pm

      Eric, gave the answer above 12-0-12 v CSUF 92

  • RedZone September 29, 2010 at 11:33 pm

    The only trivia I know is that Victoria Prince is Kevin Federlines new girlfriend.

    • warriorfan September 30, 2010 at 1:00 pm

      that’s not new they have been dating for over a year now! V seems happy and I’m happy for her. She was on a Vh1 show earlier this year with KFed.

      • Cindy Luis September 30, 2010 at 2:42 pm

        Yes, very old news. been together for a couple of years. I know I mentioned it after the men’s volleyball match at CSUN ’cause Wade went out to dinner with Prince and KFed.

    Found this article from the Las Cruces sun-news

    Rainbow blues
    Hawaii sweeps AggiesBy Teddy Feinberg /
    Posted: 09/29/2010 11:12:54 PM MDT

    LAS CRUCES – The Hawaii Rainbow Wahine showed why they’re the No. 6-ranked volleyball team in the country, beating the New Mexico State Aggies 25-16, 25-14, 25-14 on Wednesday night at the Pan American Center.

    The Rainbow showed off a full arsenal of talent, led by Chanteal Satele (11 kills, six digs), Brittany Hewitt (11 kills), Kanani Danielson (nine kills, 11 digs) and Dani Mafua (36 assists, eight digs).

    “They’re a great team, unbelievable defensively,” NMSU head coach Mike Jordan said. “As is the case with them, you hit a lot of great balls that are usually kills and they come back and they frustrate you … We’re not even in their stratosphere defensively. Not even close.”

    The win was Hawaii’s seventh in a row and 27th straight in conference, as the team moved to 12-1 overall, 3-0 in Western Athletic Conference play in 2010.

    New Mexico State dropped to 2-1 in league and 8-8 on the year.

    Early stages of the first set saw the match tied at 6, 7 and 8. Hawaii slowly pulled away, however, closing out the set with a 10-3 run.

    Hawaii took a double-digit lead, 22-12, in the second set and led from start to finish in the third, eventually taking a 19-8 advantage and not looking back.

    NMSU was led by Kayleigh Giddens’ 12 kills. Whitney Woods and Kelsey Brennan had six kills apiece for NMSU. Jennah DeVries finished with 27 assists and six digs.

    and did you see how quickly they buried that article ? It was put up around 8 pm last night and move to the back burner by morning. They have a really difficult time saying we lost.

    • Warrior15 September 30, 2010 at 1:55 pm

      are you talking about the school or the newspaper?

      -Coach Jordan’s quote seemed very humbling. He gave a lot of credit to UH, saying they weren’t in Hawaii’s “stratosphere” on the defense end.

      -The Las Cruces paper is a different story. It probably has less to do with being able to “say” or admit that NMSU lost … than with the paper not devoting a lot of column inches to volleyball in general.

      Not everything in this world is a slight to Hawaii… just saying …

      • Cindy Luis September 30, 2010 at 2:46 pm

        Regarding the paper’s website. It likely went up as ‘breaking news’ then moved down the list as other stories were added, much as our website.
        When I posted the result, it was the No. 1 story. It was quite low on the list at 10 p.m.

  • ingoodstanding September 30, 2010 at 12:51 pm

    Would’ve thought that it were to’ve been Deitra (or someone like Joanna Salmes (sp?) who was a setter rarely in the lineup…with a ‘dump’ shot, or two)

    In anycase, here’s hoping that outside of the Wahine the USC Trojans win it all this year. That would make it Mick’s fourth–or fifth, depending on the way you’d ‘see’ things–as his AIAW title was really a gimme with the ‘competition’. ;-)

    I wonder how much longer before Utah St. cracks the Top 25 ??? It would be nice to see it happen in the WAC Champs. this Christmas in Las Vegas! :-D

    • Cindy Luis September 30, 2010 at 2:49 pm

      IGS, could you elaborate on Deitre and Sahm? Not sure what you were referring to.

  • Yabba - Dabba - Doo September 30, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    Got this from one of the aggies web sites.

  • ingoodstanding September 30, 2010 at 1:23 pm

    Any such banter about the local girls who’d played (over the years) at UHH, HPU, or BYU-HI?

    If I’d to guess:
    HPU: Sheila Bing, maybe Lisa Bregado (Van Sickle’s wife)…Nobreiga (Chas’s sister)

    BYU-HI: Mona Afalava…Pam Nihipali

    UHH: Perhaps Flo Alo, Sheila Scott (Sean’s sis), Carla Carpenter-Kabalis


    • ingoodstanding September 30, 2010 at 1:26 pm

      It would be really cool if some body (hint, hint) could prompt the Div. II school’s to come up with media guides as none are online. If nothing else…for historical purposes, only! ;-)

  • Cindy Luis September 30, 2010 at 3:01 pm

    Yes, the DII are not good about that. BYUH probably the best. HPU does have a media guide out but not online. I’ll suggest that to John Barry. Had Nahaku Brown calling me for her coaching record from her first stint since Chaminade didn’t have records.
    IGS, not sure what you’re asking about th elocal girls who played at the DII schools. Dig leaders? kill leaders?
