BYUH sweeps Chaminade

Brigham Young University-Hawai‘i sophomore All-American middle blocker Chun Yi Lin shattered the all-time school record for single match hitting performance as she hammered 16 kills in 19 attacks with just one error for a .789 percentage as BYUH defeated Chaminade on Saturday night.

Lin, who leads the Pacific West Conference in hitting percentage, erased the .778 mark established by Vanessa Valansi against Bellarmine back in August, 1997 as the Seasiders outgunned the Silverswords, 30-20, 30-13, 30-26.

The win, combined with Hawai‘i Pacific’s loss to UH-Hilo, gives the Seasiders, now 15-2 for the season and 7-0 in the PacWest, sole possession of first place in the conference.

BYUH’s other All-American, sophomore outside hitter Yu Chuan Weng, broke out of a mild slump to blast 14 kills while hitting .458. Ashley Moeai, the Seasiders’ other middle blocker, put away 14 kills with a .500 hitting percentage.

Freshman outside hitter Sylvia Oliveira also reached double figures in kills with ten recorded, and led both teams in digs with ten. Junior setter Kaala Lo assisted on 50 kills for the Seasiders who outhit the Silverswords .380 to .140 for the match.

Valaso Sepulona led the Silverswords with 14 kills and Kahala Kabalis added 10 despite sitting out the second game after twisting her knee.
