Careena Onosai, the defending state champion in both the discus and shot put, announced last year that she planned to walk on to UH's women's volleyball and track and field programs.
"We felt as a family that her future was brighter in throwing," said Joe Onosai, a former standout football player for UH. "And UCLA is the top throwing school in the nation that has produced more Olympians than any other college."
