Rainbow Warrior volleyball player Brook Sedore was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Volleyball Player of the Week after his contributions in Hawai‘i’s two-match sweep of UCLA during the weekend.
The junior opposite averaged 5.11 kills per set and tallied a .427 hitting percentage during the series. He matched his season-high of 24 kills on .452 hitting in the squad’s four-set victory on Friday and tallied 22 kills, hitting .400 in the five-set upset on Saturday. He also served up an ace each night and combined for seven digs and three blocks. Before the Bruin series, Sedore had only one 20-plus kill match this season.
Sedore currently leads the team with a 3.62 kill average while hitting a .320 clip. He also leads the team with 18 service aces.
He is the first Rainbow Warrior to be honored by the conference this season, and it marks the second weekly award of his career.
The Rainbow Warriors host No. 8 UC Irvine on Friday, March 7 and Sunday, March 9 in a pivotal MPSF series this week. After the sweep of UCLA last weekend, the Warriors now sit in fifth place in the MPSF. Ranked eighth in the nation, this is Hawai‘i’s first time in the top 10 since the final AVCA poll in 2011.
