Wahine Clinch 7th Consecutive WAC Title

(Fresno, California-AP) -- The University of Hawaii has clinched its seventh consecutive women's volleyball regular-season Western Athletic Conference title. The Rainbow Wahine did it Friday night with a 30-19, 30-24, 25-30, 22-30, 15-10 victory over Fresno State.

Lily Kahumoku had a career-high 33 kills and Kim Willoughby added 30 as the third-ranked Rainbow Wahine extended their WAC winning streak to 64 matches.

The two games dropped to the Bulldogs were the first two Hawaii lost in conference play this season. The match also marked the first time the Rainbow Wahine went to five games this year and the first time they were taken to five games by a WAC team since October 18th, 2001.

Hawaii improved to 24-1 overall and 12-0 in the WAC, while Fresno State dropped to 23-4 and 10-3. The Rainbow Wahine are set to end regular-season play tonight at San Jose State.

They will then return home for a few days before heading to the WAC Tournament, which opens next Friday in Reno, Nevada.
