For the second straight day, University of Hawai’i men’s volleyball player Brook Sedore was honored for his performance in last week’s two-match sweep of UCLA, earning AVCA National Player of the Week honors.
On Monday, Sedore was named Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Player of the Week, the first award for a Rainbow Warrior this season and the second of his career.
With the AVCA award, Sedore becomes the 18th UH player in program history to receive national player of the week honors and first since Sinisa Zarkovic on March 12, 2013.
Sedore, a junior opposite from Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada, averaged 5.11 kills per set and hit .427 during the series. He matched his season-high of 24 kills on .452 hitting in the team’s four-set victory on Friday and tallied 22 kills, hitting .400, in the five-set win on Saturday. He also served an ace each night, and combined for seven digs and three blocks. Prior to the weekend, Sedore had only one 20-plus kill match this season.
Sedore and the Rainbow Warriors host No. 8 UC Irvine Friday, March 7 and Sunday, March 9 in a pivotal MPSF series this week. Following the two wins, UH moved up three spots into a tie with UCI for eighth in this week’s AVCA Top 15 poll.
