Kalameli Matuatia

Kodiak’s Kalameli Matuatia has meant double trouble for opposing volleyball teams in the NWAC.

The Columbia Basin College sophomore has posted double figures in kills in five of the last six matches and digs in two of the last three.

All the while the Hawks had soared to the top of the NWAC’s East Region with a 5-0 start.

Matuatia, of Kodiak High fame, recently posted a marvelous 17-kill, 17-dig effort to spark a 5-set win over Spokane.

It was the fifth match in a row in which she increased her kill total from previous match, building from 8 to 10 to 11 to 15 to 17.

The 5-foot-9 outside hitter ranks second on her team with 102 kills and third with 66 digs.
