Wahine sailing team sweeps in California

Advertiser Staff

The University of Hawai'i Wahine sailing team won both the A and B divisions of the Bryson Women's Intersectional in Redwood City, Calif., last weekend.

The Wahine, ranked seventh in the Sailing World magazine college poll, finished ahead of host Stanford, California, UC Irvine, UC Santa Barbara, Washington and UC Santa Cruz.

Marin Diskant, Kili Chivers, Renee DeCurtis and Sarah Hitchcock won the A division race, and Jennifer Warnock, DeCurtis and Hitchcock teamed for the B division victory.

The Wahine and coed teams will compete this weekend on the Mainland.

The UH sailing program will be holding a fund-raiser tomorrow through Tuesday in a partnership with Leonard's Bakery. Fifteen percent of all sales at the Leonard's Jr. malasada wagon in the Kailua Daiei parking lot will go toward the Wahine and coed teams to help defray travel costs.

For more information on the fund-raiser, call head coach Andy Johnson at 956-5177.


• UH scrimmage: The University of Hawai'i men's volleyball team will hold an intrasquad scrimmage 7 p.m. Saturday at the Pearl City High School gym.

Present and former UH players will play in the scrimmage. It is the second consecutive year the Warriors are using Pearl City's gym for the scrimmage.

Doors open at 6 and an autograph session will follow the match.

Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students.


• Kawano at clinic: Bruce Kawano of Hawai'i was one of 34 coaches who attended the Elite Boxing Coaches Clinic last month at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The five-day event included instruction on the components and principles of training, sports physiology, nutrition, and injury prevention of boxers as well as elite athletes in general.
