Coming off the disappointing five-game loss, the Lady Sea Warriors hoped to triumph over rival school Chaminade at the Silverswords’ home gym, Sept. 15.

HPU, seemingly unable to concentrate in front of the rowdy Chaminade crowd, fell to the Silverswords 30-18 in the first set. Although HPU out-blocked Chaminade 10 to 4, the Silverswords led in kills, 49 to 26 and defeated the Lady Sea Warriors, 30-18, 30-21, and 30-Martin led HPU with 13 kills and 5 blocks, while Trina Kauliakomoa led the Silverswords with 11 kills and 5 digs.
On Sept. 18, HPU took on undefeated Grand Canyon University at St. Andrews Priory. HPU’s offense continued to struggle with a team-high hitting percentage of .163. Only one player reached double-digits in kills (Martin, 11 kills). Grand Canyon also outblocked the Lady Sea Warriors 9-4 to sweep HPU 30-22, 30-21, 30-25.

Head Coach Daryl Kapis said he is determined to find a way for his team to improve. “I think the biggest part about how the season is going to turn around will be with experience,” Kapis said. “We have such a young group of girls playing, the season can only get better because we’re going to get more experience under our belt.”

All-American Martin agreed, saying that the newcomers on the team need to focus and make a stronger effort.

“We’re still learning to adjust to his (Kapis’s) different coaching style, but overall we just have to learn to win and play as a team.”
