Cole Hogland Big West Defensive Player of the Week

University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa men’s volleyball player Cole Hogland earned his first Big West Defensive Player of the Week award following UH‘s series sweep of Long Island University on February 22 and 24.

Hogland, a junior middle blocker, became the fifth Rainbow Warrior this season to earn a conference weekly award and the third to be named Defensive Player of the Week following Brett Sheward (January 16) and Guilherme Voss (February 13).

Hogland led the team with 13 total blocks in the two-match series, averaging 2.17 blocks per set. He had eight in UH‘s straight set win in the series opener and followed with five in the rematch. The junior also hit .667 with nine kills in 12 attempts and had a team-leading three aces in the series.

Hogland currently leads the team with a 1.07 blocks per set average, which ranks No. 10 nationally and No. 4 in the Big West.

The Rainbow Warriors continue their five-week homestand with a pair of home matches against former conference rival Pepperdine University on March 1 and 2.
