  1. Hiya Cindy! Looking at various blogs concerning Wahine Volleyball! Many speculations&rumors about some of the Wahines returning for next season! I know that Anna&Chandler are dealing with medical problems.Since Kendra/Tiff&Annika didnt make the trip to Brazil speculations by some bloggers suggest that they think that these players aren’t coming back! Will be waiting for your take! Thankyou?

    • Don’t know why Ham, Westerberg and De Goode did not make the trip to Brazil. Cowell has retired from collegiate volleyball due to an ACL tear. No sure about Kiraly. just throwing it out there … except for Ham, the others hold foreign passports. Westerberg is fairly newly married, husband in the military. Perhaps he got transferred. Of course, that is just a guess
