Advertiser Staff

The University of Hawaii women’s water polo team won two more matches yesterday to finish the Princeton Tournament in New Jersey with a 4-0 record.

The Wahine defeated Michigan, 12-6, and Hartwick (N.Y. ) College, 18-4, at DeNunzio Pool.

Amy Morrow, Karin vanHoff, Jennifer Hodge and Eko Lapp each scored two goals against Michigan.

Freshman Traci Trochinski and senior Mandy Crawford scored three goals apiece against Hartwick. VanHoff, Rebecca Angus and Erin Kocher had two goals each.

Goalie Christa Tackaberry made 10 saves against Michigan and eight against Hartwick.

The Wahine (5-0) open their home season Thursday against UC San Diego at the Duke Kahanamoku Aquatic Complex. The match starts at 6 p.m.


Vikings bow out: Defending state champion Hilo saw its hopes of returning to the boys state basketball tournament extinguished in a 66-60 semifinal loss to Honokaa Saturday night at the Big Island Interscholastic Federation’s postseason tournament.

Honokaa (12-0) and Waiakea (10-2) — which beat Kealakehe, 44-38, in the other semifinal — have clinched the Big Island’s two berths in the Feb. 21-24 state tournament.

Honokaa meets Waiakea at 7 p.m. Friday at Hilo civic for the Big Island’s overall title. If Waiakea wins, a playoff will be Saturday at Hilo civic.

Hilo stayed in contention in the Big Island tournament with a 79-62 win over Kohala (8-4) in Friday’s opening round, but fell behind Honokaa early the next night. Honokaa’s Derek Gabriel hit three 3-pointers in the first quarter to help the Dragons take a 20-12 lead.

Gabriel finished with 22 points as Honokaa improved to 21-3 overall and pushed its winning streak to 18 games.

Waiakea hit 20 of 24 free-throw attempts in turning back Kealakehe, which finished 9-4.

Earlier the better: The Interscholastic League of Honolulu has changed the first day of its Post Season Tournament from Wednesday to tomorrow.

In games at McCabe Gym, Maryknoll will play Mid-Pacific at 6 p.m. and Damien will meet Hawaii Baptist at 7:30.

The winners will play St. Louis and Kamehameha, respectively, in semifinals on Thursday at Punahou.

The final game on Friday at Iolani will determine the ILH’s third entry in the Feb. 21-24 state tournament.

Iolani and Punahou have already won the ILH’s first two state berths.


Pearl City prevails: Pearl City won the first Oahu Interscholastic Association Pep Squad Championships Saturday night at Radford High.

Kaimuki was second and Mililani third.

Kaiser won the junior varsity title, followed by Mililani and Radford.


Soccer snafus: The Mililani player in the photo on the cover of yesterday’s Advertiser was Jennifer Loo. She was misidentified in the caption.

Bryan Lenharr scored the third goal at 62:30 for Kamehameha’s boys soccer team in Saturday’s play-in game against King Kekaulike. Another player was credited in a story yesterday. It was Lenharr’s first goal of the season.
