University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Wahine volleyball earned top Big West Conference honors—Brooke Van Sickle was named the Big West Conference Player of the Year and Robyn Ah Mow earned Coach of the Year. The awards were voted on by the league coaches.
Three other Rainbow Wahine were recognized—Amber Igiede, Kate Lang and Skyler Williams each earned a spot on the all-conference first team. Lang was also named to the all-freshman team.
For guiding the Rainbow Wahine to back-to-back conference titles, Ah Mow earned Coach of the Year honors for the second time. In 2019 she was named Co-Coach of the Year while winning the Big West for the first time as a head coach. Ah Mow helped UH navigate through last year’s canceled season to come back strong in 2021 with a 18-2 conference mark.
Van Sickle proved to be the driving force in that run for a conference title. The senior captain has led Hawaiʻi all season in numerous statistical categories—including kills, kill/set, service aces and points. Van Sickle finished among the Big West leaders in points (1st), kills (2nd) and service aces (2nd) per set, while also tallying 11 double-doubles on the season.
UH’s dynamic middle blockers Igiede and Williams gained first-team recognition once again after each earned the same honor in 2019.
Igiede proved to be one of the most versatile players in the Big West, earning defensive and offensive Player of the Week honors in consecutive weeks during UH’s title run.
Williams is second on the team and was among the Big West leaders in hitting percentage and blocks.
Lang earned a spot on both the first team and freshman team after a superb inaugural campaign. She led the conference in assists/sets and is fourth on the team in digs and blocks.
