• Rainbows finish last: Despite shooting its best round of the tournament, the University of Hawai'i women's team finished last out of 17 teams in the Kent Youel Invitational yesterday at the Kapolei Golf Course.

UH closed with a 318 for a three-round total of 963.

California won with 870, followed by UCLA (888) and Stanford (893).

Stanford's Kim Rowton won medalist honors with a 1-under 215. Cal's Ria Quiazon and Texas A&M's Nicole Melton tied for second with 217.

Kristin Scholl was the top UH golfer with 75—233, tying for 44th place, although she was not a member of the five-player squad.


• Social at Schofield: The Hawai'i Pacific Tennis Foundation will hold a Social Scrambles Doubles Tournament Saturday at Schofield Barracks, from noon to 4.

The foundation will provide awards, beverages and balls. Cost is $10 plus a pot luck dish. Because there is no draw, there is no need to sign up before the event.

The foundation is also looking for volunteers for its junior program that morning. The keiki/junior "scrambles" go from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Call the foundation (479-6727) for more information.
