Women’s volleyball to take on BYU-Hawaii


After winning the Varney Invitational and boosting its record to 5-2, the BYU women’s volleyball team is looking to defeat sister school BYU-Hawaii.

The Cougars are currently on a winning streak after defeating Idaho, Georgia Southern and Kansas State last weekend but are looking to get another win under their belt.

Sophomore opposite hitter Jennifer Hamson, who was tournament MVP this past weekend, and junior setter Heather Hannemann will be key players in the upcoming match.




The Cougars said they plan to use Wendesday’s match and this weekend’s tournament to prepare for conference play.

In a recent news release, head coach Shawn Olmstead said the team tries perfect their offense and defense with every match.

“We try to make our offense and defense a little better with each opportunity to practice in a match setting,” Olmstead said.

The Cougars will face four different opponents in four days during this upcoming week.

“Our focus will be on each individual opponent as things progress,” Olmstead said in a news release. “We look forward to the challenge this presents and can’t wait to get going.”

The BYU-Hawaii women’s volleyball team is 3-0 this season, but the Cougars have a 7-1 all-time record against the Seasiders.

The Cougars will take on the Seasiders in the Smith Fieldhouse on Wednesday at 7 p.m. The match will also be televised on BYUtv.
