This will take a lot of fun out of the games with LBS moving forward . He has been great for the sport and like Dave, he always gave his all.

Mol sent out congrats to Kupono for also signing with an Italy team along with Franciscovic on the same IG post. Stoked for them. Not sure if news on Fey was mentioned on earlier post, i’ve been down and out with a cold. Happy to hear about Iosia as well as the guys on JNT. Hawaii well represented

Brian G, the coach UH volleyball fans love to hate. Dave & BG brought out the best of each other’s teams over the years and they had some EPIC matches. Women’s volleyball won’t be the same without Shoji, Dunning, BG, Feller, etc…Thanks for everything you’ve done for women’s volleyball Coach Gimmillaro! Enjoy your retirement!

Prep VB just posted 2018 commit Kamalei Krud a 6-0 class of 2018 MB from Anuenue School and Monaoa Beach VBC (Previously Imi Ike, coached by Kaleo Baxter and Danny Alaverz), has committed to Hawaii as a pin.

Good to see local girls getting recruited by UH, don’t think the class of 2017 had any local girls going to UH.

6 turfwar June 9, 2017 at 9:59 am Kamalei Krug. Class of 2018, looks like a pin hitter probably on the right.
