Spieler, Maglio Dominate at the No. 1 Spot
Hawaii’s duo in Katie Spieler and Emily Maglio earned Big West beach volleyball Pairs Team of the Week honors after a dominating performance over Boise State. This is the Rainbow Wahine’s sixth recognition in the conference’s inaugural beach season and the third award for Spieler and Maglio (March 7, March 14).
Senior Katie Spieler (Santa Barbara Calif./Dos Pueblos HS) and freshman Emily Maglio (Coquitlam, B.C./Pinetree Secondary School) faced Boise State over the weekend and recorded a straight-set victory after stepping up to the No. 1 position (21-11, 21-14). The pair averaged an 8.5-point margin of victory.
With the win, the tandem moved to 14-1 on the season as Spieler and Maglio helped UH take the W over the Broncos. The pair has not dropped a matchup since March 15 or a set since April April 2.
The duo helped Hawai‘i improve to 11-6 overall to maintain the top spot in league with a .647 win-percentage.
