After two season opening losses it's back to the drawing board for the University of Hawaii Rainbow Wahine volleyball team.
Take nothing away from Hawaii. Dave Shoji never shys away from tough competition and this year's no different. The Wahine opened the season this past weekend on the road against both of last year's national finalists.
Losses to national powers Nebraska and Wisconsin put the Wahine in an unusual position. They're 0-2 to start the 2001 season but as setter Jen Carey points out it's winning at the end of the season that counts most. And that starts with getting back to work in the gym. The Rainbow women know that two matches do not make a season.
Next up for Hawaii is their home opener. And if the Wahine are down after two losses a packed house at the Stan Sheriff Center will take care of that. K5 The Home Team's coverage of over a hundred UH athletic events gets rolling this Friday. It's all begins with the 14th Hawaiian Airlines Rainbow Wahine Classic. Four teams, six matches spread over three days. On day one it's a pretty good Rose Bowl match-up on Friday with Michigan taking on UCLA at 5:30. Then at 7:30 Hawaii hosts Kansas State.
