No Ka Oi Tournament
Schedule: At Waipio Peninsula Soccer Stadium, tomorrow: Hawaii vs. Northern Arizona, 7 p.m.; Saturday: Northern Arizona vs. Oregon State, 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, Hawaii vs. Oregon State, 7 p.m.
Coaches: Hawaii, Pinsoom Tenzing, 7th season (43-59-7, .431); Northern Arizona, Tracy Custer, 5th season (19-36-0, .345); Oregon State, Steve Fennah, 3rd season (15-24-2, .390).
Season records: Hawaii (1-0-1 overall); Northern Arizona (1-2-0); Oregon State (1-1-0).
Top players: Hawaii, Freshman striker Arlene Devitt, who has scored all the Wahine goals in 2000. Senior Camille Kalama and junior Erin Schremser, who marshall the defense in front of senior goalkeeper Demarre Sanchez ... Northern Arizona, Raegin Eyre, senior striker, all-time Lumberjacks leading scorer, All-Big Sky Conference player three consecutive years; Erin Beckman, junior goalkeeper, set school single-season record for saves (115) last season, and junior striker Holly Jones, two goals in three matches ... Oregon State, Junior Christy Castalanelli and sophomore Whitney Horn are returning starters on defense. Sophomore midfielder Katie Henderson tied for the team scoring lead (6 goals, 2 assists) a year ago. Junior striker BreeAnna Jolin led the Beavers with 7 goals in 1999.
Match keys: The Wahine need to play the way they did against Wyoming, protect the ball, make sure tackles, and work the ball upfield by passing into open space and using the whole field ... The Beavers will be almost at full strength, regaining the services of senior defender Christy Castalanelli, senior goalkeeper Jerika Duran and junior forward BreeAnna Jolin for the tournament. The trio had been suspended for OSU's first two games for playing in an indoor game that violated NCAA regulations.
Interesting facts: Senior co-captain Allison Hamada (Punahou '97), a starting defender for the Beavers since her freshman year, returns this weekend. Unfortunately, she won't be playing after breaking a collarbone in practice two weeks ago. Also returning is Lyn Nakagawa (Punahou '96), who is in her first year as a trainer with the OSU team.
Tickets: Admission and parking are free.
