Nov 01, 2012 No Comments by

SAN RAFAEL, CA— On Tuesday, Oct. 24 2012 Brigham Young University “BYU” Hawaii (15-2/10-0), who came in to the match ranked eighth in NCAA Division II, visited the Conlan Center to take on the Lady Penguins (6-13/4-7).

Not only had the Seasiders from Hawaii not lost a match in league play, they had won every single set. Despite the Lady Penguins’ best efforts, that would not change.

BYU-Hawaii swept Dominican in three sets, 25-12, 25-12, 25-16.

The Lady Penguins received a solid effort from junior outside hitter Hannah Stocking-Siagkris. In the
losing effort, she racked up seven kills to go along with her seven digs.

Ashlee Sand, the senior middle blocker out of Rohnert Park had a steady match in the middle with six kills.

In the end it was too much BYU-Hawaii as they continue to dominate the PacWest Conference, advancing to a perfect 10-0 in league play.

Taiwanese sophomore Shih Ting Cheng had a monster game with 15 kills and 16 digs. 6-foot 1-inch senior Lauren Hagemeyer contributed 12 kills to the Seasiders victory. Sophomore Ying Chun Chen, another Taiwanese player, lent a large helping hand in the win with
her 41 assists.
