University of Hawaii men’s volleyball standout Kana‘i Akana is our featured guest on our latest episode of ESPN Honolulu “Fan Friday: Talk Story.” Hosted by Dave Kawada, this exclusive Zoom interview will be available for viewing starting today at 10:00 a.m. on our ESPN Honolulu Facebook page.
Akana, a 6’5” junior outside hitter out of Punahou School, should see increased action for the Rainbow Warriors this season after primarily serving as a serving specialist and backup outside hitter. He appeared in 10 matches in 2021, recording season-highs of five kills, three digs and a block against CSUN on April 10.
Before joining the UH program, Akana played two seasons at BYU.
The defending national champion Rainbow Warriors will open their 2022 season next Wednesday with a home date against Loyola-Chicago.
