Hawaii's No. 3 Pair Earns Weekly Award
Hawaii’s No. 3 pair in Emily Maglio and Laurel Weaver earned Big West Pairs Team of the Week honors after going 4-1 during the Outrigger Hawai‘i Invitational.
Sophomore Emily Maglio (Coquitlam, Canada/Pinetree Secondary) and junior Laurel Weaver (Winnetka, Calif./UCLA) went 4-1 at the No. 3 flight at the Outrigger Hawai‘i Invitational and extended their streak of consecutive sets won to 18 after a straight-set victory over Nebraska (21-8, 21-11).
Despite dropping their first loss of the season to No. 4 Florida State, the pair bounced back with three consecutive wins including a straight-set victory over No. 7 Arizona (21-15, 21-3). The duo also defeated No. 1 USC’s No. 3 pair in Nicolette Martin and Terese Cannon (21-10, 21-23, 15-7).
The tandem improved to a team-best 21-1 mark and has dropped just three sets in 13 matches played.
This is the first honor for the pair this season and Hawaii’s second award in 2017.
Others nominated: Heather Pembroke & Reann Greisen (Cal Poly), Rachel Nieto & Nele Barber (Long Beach State)
