School record broken at Sunset Meet
University of Hawaii senior Meghan Weaver set a school record, heaving the shot put 51 feet, 7 1/4 inches during the Sunset Meet at Cooke Field on Saturday.
The meet was the first of six that UH will host throughout the track and field season.
The Rainbow Wahine will travel to Seattle to compete in the University of Washington Invitational this weekend.
Ochoa will skip Hawaii swing
World No. 1 Lorena Ochoa will not play in either LPGA event in Hawaii this year, two sources confirmed yesterday.
She will instead begin her 2009 campaign at a new tournament in Singapore, skipping the SBS Open in two weeks and the Fields Open the following week for the first time since those tournaments opened the season in Hawaii. There are some indications that Annika Sorenstam will play in these tournaments for the first time, although that has yet to be confirmed.
Michelle Wie will begin 2009 at the Fields Open on her old course at Ko Olina. Paula Creamer will be here to defend her SBS Open title at Turtle Bay and Stacy Prammanasudh is back to defend her championship at the Fields.
Hawaii gets three more recruits
Local football recruits have been taking their time to commit to colleges lately, but Hawaii coaxed a few mainland players to give their word to the Warriors.
Hawaii received commitments from Saddleback College wide receiver Mike Tinoco, College of the Canyons defensive back Chris Black and defensive back Jeramy Bryant of Los Angeles Harbor College yesterday.
