UH football on Kauai April 10
The University of Hawai'i football team will play an intrasquad scrimmage April 10 at Vidinha Stadium on Kaua'i, school officials announced yesterday.
The Warriors will travel to Kaua'i that Saturday morning aboard two Hawaiian Airlines flights, then conduct a two-hour scrimmage beginning at 11 a.m. An autograph session will follow.
The event is free and open to the public.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for our student-athletes to visit a Neighbor Island and meet the people of Kaua'i," UH athletic director Jim Donovan said in a news release. "We have tremendous supporters on the Neighbor Islands, and any chance we get, we'd like to thank them in person, such as last year's football scrimmage (on Maui), and this week's men's volleyball match on Maui.
"We've said all along we're Hawai'i's team, and we're excited for this opportunity and for our fans on Kaua'i."
Stephanie Ricketts pitched a six-hitter with four strikeouts as the University of Hawai'i beat Loyola Marymount, 8-0, yesterday in a non-conference softball game ended by the mercy rule after six innings in Los Angeles.
Amanda Tauali'i hit a two-run homer, Kelly Majam added a solo shot and Melissa Gonzalez had three hits and scored two runs for the Rainbow Wahine (8-3). The Lions are 2-4.
UH now travels to Palm Springs, Calif. for the Cathedral City Classic hosted by Oregon State, starting tomorrow.
