Katie Hoekman was named to the All-Tournament team.

HONOLULU, Hawaii -The University of San Diego women's volleyball team (2-1) stunned No. 11 University of Hawaii, 3-2, Sunday evening at the Chevron Rainbow Wahine Classic in front of an announced crowd of 7,049.

"I am so proud of our girls. The fact that they were able to come back from the tough loss to Texas the night before, and to turn around and play on that level, is just amazing. And to beat Hawaii in Hawaii is just so amazing," stated head coach Jennifer Petrie.

After UH (2-1) rallied back to force a fifth and deciding set, the Toreros didn't go into panic mode, then went in to finish mode. After trailing 4-1, an Alaysia Brown kill sparked a 7-0 run to give the Toreros the momentum and an 8-4 lead. After the two teams switched sides of the court, UH scored three straight points to pull to within one at 8-7. USD then responded with a 4-0 run to force the home team into a timeout, leading 12-7. Hawaii then grabbed the next two points, forcing USD into a timeout. San Diego then closed out the match on a 3-1 run to complete the upset win.

Sandra Lozic led the team with 22 kills, on 54 swings to hit for a .296 clip, and she recorded 12 digs to record her first double-double of the season. Brown recorded 14 kills and had four blocks, while Katie Hoekman 13 kills and hit for a .409 clip. Chloe Ferrari recorded 11 kills and she had seven blocks. Jianna Bonomi recorded 34 assists and had nine digs, while C'era Oliveirarecorded a team-best 25 digs.

The Rainbow Wahine grabbed the first set by a score of 25-15. In the early going it was a back and forth affair, with the home team holding onto a 1-2 point lead. Then with the Toreros trailing 4-3, Hawaii went on a 4-0 run to take the momentum and a 7-3 lead. The Rainbow Wahine never really looked back and they steadily built up a 7-point lead, before going on to claim a 10-point win.

The Toreros then bounced back in the second set, as they evened the match at one-set-a piece with a 26-24 win. A Ferrari kill sparked a 7-2 run to open up the frame for USD, giving the Toreros the early momentum. However, Hawaii answered right back with a 5-0 run of their own to tie things up at 7-all. The two teams then began to trade point-for-point over the next several possessions. Then with the score knotted at 12-all, Hawaii went on a 6-2 run to take an 18-14 lead, grabbing all the momentum. USD would then close the gap to one at 19-18 on a Hoekman kill. UH then went on to take a 23-20 lead, seemingly in control of the set. But the Toreros had different ideas, as a Hoekman kill sparked a 4-1 run to knot things up at 24-all. Back-to-back Brown kills then gave USD the win, to even the match at 1-1.

San Diego then continued that momentum into the third set, as they raced out to a 7-1 lead. The Toreros would then manage to keep a 6-7 point lead for a majority of the frame, and cruised their way to a 25-19 win, to take a 2-1 lead in the match.

Hawaii then battled back and managed to force a fifth and deciding set as they captured set four, 25-23. The Rainbow Wahine raced out to an 11-3 lead, and appeared to be in complete control. USD then began to slowly chip away at the lead, and pulled back to within one at 21-20, and again at 22-21, but they could not get overt the hump, as UH held on to win 25-23.
