Beach Volleyball's Rooks/Schucht Earn First Big West Weekly Honors

QUEEN OF THE BEACH STORY:  UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII BEACH VOLLEYBALL

IRVINE, Calif. – For the fourth consecutive week, a University of Hawai'i Rainbow Wahine beach volleyball pairs team has been selected as the Big West Conference Pairs Team of the Week. The tandem of Hannah Rooks and Ka'iwi Schucht earned their first award and bring the total to three different pairs teams from UH who have earned the honor this season.
 
After No. 5 pair of Ari Homayun and Hannah Zalopany claimed the honor last week, it was time for the No. 3 pair of Rooks (Jr., Honolulu, O'ahu/Kaiser HS) and Schucht (So., Escondido, Calif./Serra HS) to get their due, going 5-0 on the week against all-ranked opposition to receive their first-ever Big West Beach Volleyball Pairs Team of the Week honors.
 
After four weeks, no other conference school has earned weekly honors this season.
 
The No. 3 Rainbow Wahine tandem earned all five of their wins against top-20 teams, including three top-10 programs in No. 2 Florida State, No. 9 Stetson and No. 10 Florida International. Four of the pair's victories came at the Stetson Beach Invitational over Spring Break in DeLand, Fla., where the duo recorded three straight-set victories.
 
Perfect in match play, the twosome helped UH to a 4-1 upset of the No. 2 Seminoles and contributed to wins versus No. 9 Stetson and No. 10 FIU.  The duo also aided the Rainbow Wahine in stringing together now six-straight wins to improve to 9-5 on the season.
 
The Rainbow Wahine will be back in action on O'ahu this weekend, taking on the 2016 Outrigger Beach Volleyball Challenge with a first-day pairs tournament at the Clarence T.C. Ching Athletic Complex on Friday, April 1, followed by meetings with Arizona State and UCLA on Queen's Beach on Saturday, April 2.
