Silverswords upset

ANCHORAGE, ALASKA - Down two games to none, the University of Alaska at Anchorage roared back to hand Chaminade University's women's volleyball team its first Pacific West Conference loss, 3-15, 7-15, 15-9, 15-2, 15-12, last night.

April Hydak had 20 kills and Karen Moore contributed 13 for Alaska-Anchorage (11-11 overall, 3-4 PWC).

Danielle Robins led the Silverswords (14-7, 5-1) with 22 kills and Doris Bikar had 15.

The Sea Wolves, held to .077 and .147 hitting percentages in the first two games, rallied by hitting .303, .444, and .269 in the final three games.



HEAD SHOTS SPARK HPU

At Fullerton, Calif., Misha Dieguez headed Joey Borzoni's pass into the goal five minutes into the second half to lift the Hawaii Pacific University men's soccer team to a 2-1 victory over Pacific Christian College yesterday.

After the Royals took a 1-0 lead at the 16-minute mark, Brad Ventura tied the score for HPU (12-1) on a header off a cross by Diego Yemal at 24 minutes.



HAYES ADVANCES

At Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Conan Hayes of Hawaii fought his way into round three of the Rio Surf Pro yesterday with the highest score (31) of the meet. Hawaii's Derek Ho also advanced to today's third round. But Kaipo Jaquias, Shane Dorian and John Shimooka were eliminated.



VULCANS LOSE CENTER

Chad Glenn, a 7-foot junior center for the University of Hawaii at Hilo basketball team, has been diagnosed with Marfan's Syndrome and will be unable to play for the Vulcans.

The inherited condition affects the collagen system and includes cardiac, ocular and musculo-skeletal abnormalities. The disease claimed the life of former U.S. Olympic volleyball star Flo Hyman.

"We were unaware that Chad had been tested for Marfan's Syndrome during our recruiting," said UHH head coach Jim Forkum. "Doctors found some of the symptoms. We're disappointed he won't be able to play for us but his health is paramount. We hope he receives the medical help he needs."
