Several ‘Bows
play summer ball

By Al Chase


A number of Hawaii Rainbows will try to improve their baseball skills this summer competing for teams from here to Kansas. Others will concentrate on academics and some will just rest.

Outfielders Derek Honma, Scooter Martines and Rah-Miel Mitchell and right-hander Sean Yamashita are playing for the Hawaii Island Movers.

Right-hander Gavin Garrick will pitch for the Topeka (Kan.) Capitols of the Jayhawk League.

Left-hander Aaron Pribble joins the San Francisco Seals of the California Coastal Collegiate League.

Corey Miller will play for the Fresno Barons in the same league.

Right-hander Chad Giannetti and catcher Kramer Aoki, two 'Bows who redshirted this past season, will play for the Carson City (Nev.) Capitols if housing arrangements are made. Otherwise, Giannetti and Aoki would join Oahu Summer League teams.

Infielders Lane Nogawa, Lon Tanigawa and Wade Taguchi and righty Grant Sato have joined Oahu Summer League teams.

First baseman/pitcher Jamie Aloy and pitcher Randon Ho will attend summer school. Both are on track to graduate in 2000.

Right-handed reliever Ian Jones has returned home to Las Vegas, where he'll take summer classes at UNLV so he'll be able to graduate on schedule.

Ex-Buffanblu Terna
signs to punt for Bucs

By Pat Bigold


Former Punahou and Ohio State punter Scott Terna has signed a two-year free agent contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Terna becomes the 16th player with Hawaii ties currently under contract in the National Football League. He signed on Friday and is already working out with the club.

The Bucs have yet to come to terms with 12-year NFL veteran Tommy Barnhardt. That opens the way for the 27-year-old Terna and two other punters to compete for a job.

"I just want to get in the loop," said Terna, who has had numerous tryouts since he graduated from Ohio State in 1995 with a degree in sociology.

The 6-foot, 212-pound Terna, who spent two years kicking, punting and holding for the Buckeyes, played in the 1995 Hula Bowl. At Punahou, the Kaneohe native also played linebacker.

Since college, he has stayed in shape while working as a certified personal trainer and has traveled with an ESPN setup crew.

OCC Invitational
starts tomorrow

Brandan Kop will defend his title in the OCC Invitational golf tournament that begins tomorrow at the Oahu Country Club course.

Kop won last year's title with a 54-hole score of 213, overtaking Jim Seki Jr., who had a four-stroke lead going into the final round.

Seki, who finished one stroke back, is also entered in the top amateur field, along with 1997 winner Damien Jamila, Regan Lee, Guy Yamamoto, Wendell Kop and Shane Hoshino. The second round will be played Friday and the final 18 holes Sunday.

Lavalava scholarship golf

The Samoan Service Providers Association will host its third annual Lavalava Scholarship golf tournament June 24 at Olomana, with proceeds targeted for young people from economically disadvantaged families.

Olympic triathlon camp

A triathlon training camp will be conducted at Waimea on the Big Island by the International Olympic Committee and the International Triathlon Union from June 27 through July 7.

The camp begins the day after the ITU Big Island Triathlon World Cup at Waikoloa, which is an invitational Olympic qualifying event for men and women. The sport will make its Olympic debut in the 2000 Sydney Games.
