Roundup: No. 7 Hawaii sweeps South Dakota

No. 7 Hawaii 3, South Dakota 0

WICHITA, Kan. -- Tai Manu-Olevao unleashed a career-high 13 kills and the No. 7 Hawaii swept South Dakota in the opening match of the Shocker Volleyball Classic at the Charles Koch Arena. Set scores were 25-19, 25-21, 25-21.

Emily Hartong had 13 kills and 13 digs for her fifth double-double of the season and Kalei Adolpho added six kills and four blocks.

Kendall Kritenbrink led the Coyotes who fell to 9-4 on the season. She drilled a match-high 14 kills to go along with 11 digs.

The 'Bows (9-1) never trailed en route to the set one win. A Kritenbrink kill gave the set its fifth tie but it would be Hawaii who would take control. A pair of kills by Manu-Olevao highlighted a 5-1 run to give the 'Bows a 14-10 lead, but the Coyotes would not go away. A Tori Kroll (6 kills) kill cut the Rainbow lead to one point and block assists by Kritenbrink and Melissa Firtko (4 kills, 4 blks) evened the set at 17-17. Down the stretch though it would be all UH, as kills by Adolpho, Manu-Olevao, and Hartong helped seal the six-point win.

No. 3 Washington 3, Coppin State 0

SEATTLE -- The third-ranked Huskies used a wide array of contributors Thursday to overwhelm Coppin State in consecutive sets in front of 1,310 fans at Alaska Airlines Arena. Twelve Huskies saw the court, as Washington (7-0) cruised to a 25-4, 25-1, 25-18 win. The four points allowed in the first set is a school record since rally scoring began in 2001.

The Huskies hit .388 for the match and opened things with a 20-1 run on senior Jenna Orlandini’s serving. Junior Kaleigh Nelson had 10 kills and senior Kylin Muñoz had nine on a .471 attacking clip.

Sophomore Melanie Wade had six kills and six blocks, hitting .400, and senior Jenni Nogueras had 29 of the 39 assists. Orlandini had team-highs of four aces and 12 digs. Junior Krista Vansant only played the first set, posting six kills on eight swings for a .750 attack percentage. Every Husky saw the court save for freshmen Bailey Tanner and Carly DeHoog who have yet to make their collegiate debuts.
