Hawaii Grown Report:
Ogoshi is happy to be setting again
Hofstra senior Shellane Ogoshi
(Roosevelt '04) is back playing the position she loves the most.
After spending three years at setter, Ogoshi was moved to libero for her senior season. The move paid off early, as the Pride won their first five matches.
Since then, Hofstra has lost six of its last eight, and Ogoshi now is back starting at setter.
"Setting is my passion," Ogoshi said in a story from ncaasports.com. "I love being in control and running the game and being involved in every play."
Ogoshi had 30 assists and 20 digs in a five-game win over Long Island last Saturday. She was named to the UCONN Toyota Classic all-tournament team.
Ogoshi needs only 28 assists to move into second place on the school's career list. She's also sixth in school history in digs. Her 5.02 digs per game average for the season ranks her in the top 75 in the country.
» Washington sophomore Tamari Miyashiro (Kalani '05) had a match-high 24 digs to help the eighth-ranked Huskies win their 11th straight match to start the season.
» Kristal Tsukano (Kamehameha '06) recorded a team-high 16 digs in San Jose State's four-game victory over Weber State.
Brianna Amian (Moanalua '07) had three blocks for the Spartans despite playing in just one game.
» St. John's junior Lena Yee (Moanalua '05) was named MVP of the Indiana University/adidas Classic last weekend.
Yee had 28 digs in two games to help the 21st-ranked Red Storm win their second tournament championship of the season.
Navy quarterback Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada
(Kapolei '04) rushed for 124 yards and two touchdowns -- including an 80-yarder -- in the first half of last week's game against Ball State.
Kaheaku-Enhada sprained both ankles on different plays in the first half and left with 38 seconds remaining. He did not return in the game.
He has practiced each of the last two days and is "good to go," according to coach Paul Johnson at his weekly press conference for this week's game against Duke.
