The latest rally by the University of Hawaii volleyball team helped coach Dave Shoji move one victory from another milestone.

Jane Croson posted 18 kills and 15 digs, and Jade Vorster added 13 kills for a .360 hitting percentage as Hawaii (23-2, 15-0 Big West) ran it’s NCAA-best conference winning streak to 70.
