Online Extra: Rainbow Wahine stop Cal Poly
Emily Hartong hammered a match-high 20 kills and the No. 8 University of Hawaii volleyball team beat downtrodden Cal Poly in four sets (25-15, 25-17, 17-25, 25-19) in San Luis Obispo, Calif.
Jade Vorster hit .500 and she an Ashley Kastl each added 11 kills as the Rainbow Wahine (6-0, 13-2 Big West) won their sixth straight.
Kastl also had 10 digs and helped make up for the absence of Jane Croson with her first double-double of the season. Croson was suspended indefinitely this week by coach Dave Shoji.
Even without one of its best outside hitters, UH was right near its season average, swinging .259 against Cal Poly (1-15, 0-4).
Molly Pon had 12 kills for the Mustangs, who hit .186.
UH’s hitting took a bit of a dive in the third set, and Kastl made three of her four attack errors during one stretch as Cal Poly reeled off seven straight points to cut its deficit to 2-1.
Hartong hammered eight kills in Game 4, a set that UH never trailed. Mita Uiato finished with 44 assists for UH, which finishes its two-match road trip at 4 p.m. HST today against Cal Santa Barbara.
