Vanessa Valansi led BYUH with 19 kills. Ginelle Palau had 12 for the Vulcans.

CITY BANK HELPS: The team of Roy Ogawa, Reid Nakamura and Wade Nakamura took first-place honors with a 50.5 net score. But the biggest winner was the American Red Cross in the 21st City Bank Helps Invitational Golf Tournament yesterday at the Pearl Country Club.

A total of 213 golfers competed in the benefit tourney that raised $20,000 for the organization.

WAHINE SOFTBALL CLINIC: The University of Hawaii softball team will host the OIA/ILH Softball Developmental Clinic for high school athletes at the Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium on Oct. 31, 9 a.m.-12 p.m.

The clinic is free.

GENTLE, KA'AIHILI NAMED CAPTAINS: Seniors Kelly Gentle and Regina Ka'aihili have been selected as team captains for the University of Hawaii softball team.

Gentle, from Toongabbie, Australia, enters her final season as the school's all-time winningest pitcher (62). She was 22-8 last season with a 1.43 ERA and earned all-WAC and all-NCAA West Region honors.

This is the second team captain nomination for Ka'aihili. Last year the Kamehameha Schools graduate batted .372, finishing second on the team in home runs with five and driving in 26 runs.

BUCKNELL HONORS BLAISDELL: The late Neil Blaisdell, who quarterbacked Bucknell University's 1924 football team to an 8-2 record and went on to become mayor of Honolulu, will be inducted into the Bucknell Athletic Hall of Fame tomorrow at Lewisburg, Pa.

Blaisdell, for whom Honolulu's arena-concert hall complex is named, was a successful high school coach and athletic director before serving as mayor from 1954 to 1968.
