Bellow is Jennifer Carey. Carey, a former award-winning standout setter at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa

In 1999, Carey was the starting setter for the Rainbow Wahine
as a freshman where she earned All-Western Athletic Conference second-team honors. She helped lead Hawai'i to a 29-2 record, an NCAA regional semifinal appearance and a No. 8 AVCA final ranking in her first season. In her four-year career, Carey took the Rainbow Wahine to two NCAA national semifinal appearances, two No. 3 rankings, and a 123-12 record. She earned All-WAC second team honors three times and finished her career ranked fourth all-time for Hawai'i with 3,540 assists. Carey was also selected to the WAC All-Academic team in each of her four years with the Rainbow Wahine.
Carey's first collegiate match was a 3-0 (15-8, 15-7, 15-5) win against Cal on Sept. 1, 1999, at the Recreational Sports Facility in Berkeley, Calif.
