Wahine sweep Wyoming

September 5th, 2008

In her first career start, Stephanie Ferrell put down 13 kills to lead No. 11 Hawaii past Wyoming 25-15, 25-10, 25-18 tonight at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Jamie Houston did not play for the first time since 2006. Coach Dave Shoji said it wasn’t disciplinary but that he wanted to give Ferrell more reps. Match lasted 84 minutes.

Thought Ferrell played well. Tara Hittle was at libero for first two sets, at OH for last one.

    Cindy, last nite I noticed that when the Wyoming players were being introduced, three of their players ran over to Dave Shoji and gave him a hug and peck on the cheek. What was their connection to Dave or was that some sort or psychological ploy to garner a bit more compassion on their team? Thanks

    maybe that was their way of saying thank you for having them in this tournament….

      The answer of an expter. Good to hear from you.

    No, don’t think there is a connection other than a couple of the players did play in the same club as Stephanie Brandt.
    All the Wyoming players shook hands with all the UH coaches, Dave got a couple of kisses.
    It’s a very common thing if you watch Hawaii high school girls volleyball and basketball, kissing the opposing coach before the match. I’ve seen in where a player fouls out or leaves the game permanently in basketball and shakes hands or kisses the opposing coach. only in Hawaii

    Wyoming coach felt it was very gracious of Hawaii to have them, knew they weren’t at the caliber of the rest of the field. Loved the experience.

    If I remember correctly, the three players that ran over to give Coach Dave a kiss were the Wyoming co-captains.
