Two University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa women’s volleyball players earned Big West Conference honors after the Rainbow Wahine swept University of California Riverside and University of California Davis last week.

Brooke Van Sickle and Kate Lang both earned their first Big West Player of the Week. Van Sickle was voted as the conference’s Offensive Player of the Week after the senior outside hitter scored 23 kills and just one error in 47 swings. Lang earned Big West Freshman of the Week following her first two collegiate starts.

It is the first time this season that Hawaiʻi players have earned a Big West weekly honor. The last Rainbow Wahine to earn Offensive Player of the Week was Jolie Rasmussen on September 9, 2019—the first week of the 2019 season.

The Wahine next face Long Beach State on October 1, at the SimpliFi Arena at Stan Sheriff Center.
