Itoman, Dartt winners
of UH Bonham Award

BJ Itoman of the University of Hawaii women's basketball team and Michael Dartt of the UH baseball team are the winners of the 1999 Jack Bonham Award.

The Bonham Award is presented annually in memory of the late UH assistant athletic director who died in a 1974 plane crash in America Samoa.

Itoman, a four-year letter winner at guard, is the Wahine's all-time assist leader and has excelled in the classroom with a 3.78 cumulative grade point average. She is an exercise science major with a minor in mathematics and will graduate with honors next month.

Dartt also has lettered for four years and is a two-time All-Western Athletic Conference scholar-athlete. He holds a 3.48 GPA and plans to graduate this year with a degree in secondary math education.

Johnson signs with Wahine

Autumn Johnson, a 6-foot-2 power forward who can play center, signed a letter of intent to play basketball for Hawaii next season, concluding head coach Vince Goo's recruiting effort for the 1999-2000 season.

Johnson averaged 7.6 points and 5.9 rebounds this past season for Midland (Texas) College. She was the leading shot blocker for the 34-3 Lady Chaps, helping them finish third in the NJCAA National Tournament.

Three high school players, 6-1 Natasja Allen, 6-2 Julia Washington and 6-4 Christen Roper, also signed giving the Wahine their best height in recent seasons.

Golf course rules changes

Three rule changes for municipal golf courses were announced last weekend by Dave Mills, the city's golf course system administrator.

The use of golf carts no longer is mandatory at the Ewa Villages and West Loch courses. Golfers playing in groups of four or fewer may now choose to walk those courses, carrying their own bags or using pull carts.

Golf carts now may be driven onto fairways at Ewa Villages. To minimize turf damage, carts must access the fairways using the 90-degree entry rule.

Beginning June 1, a new tee-time reservation system will be implemented. Golfers who fail to show up for their reservations may be subject to suspension of reservation privileges. Notification letters will be sent to individuals with three or more no-shows in one calendar month. Continued no-shows will bring suspensions of privileges ranging from 60 days to one year.
