University of Hawaii junior outside hitter Tara Hittle, sidelined the past three matches with an injured ankle, is out for the year.

Hittle made the announcement after she asked to speak with the media.

Under a new UH policy, the school is not allowed to disclose the status of a student-athlete.

Hittle is the team's primary passer and best ball-handler. She was an all-Western Athletic Conference selection last year and was the WAC's Freshman of the Year in 2004.

UH, ranked No. 12, is 5-3 and plays No. 23 Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo Thursday and Friday.
