The No. 1-ranked University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa men’s volleyball team completed the first undefeated regular season in program history following a straight-set win over UC Irvine, April 17, at SimpliFi Arena at Stan Sheriff Center. Set scores were 25-17, 25-18, 25-13.
The Rainbow Warriors also finished with a perfect conference season for just the third time in school history and the first since 1996. UH hosts next week’s Big West Conference Tournament and will enter as the No. 1 seed with a 16-match win streak. UH will receive a first round bye into the semifinals where they will meet one of the quarterfinal round winners.
Following the match, six seniors—James Anastassiades, Colton Cowell, Patrick Gasman, Rado Parapunov, Jackson Van Eekeren and Gage Worsley—were honored during a toned-down, but still emotional Senior Night ceremony.
