Hayashi tied with
Sieradzki for golf lead

Kevin Hayashi and Henry Sieradzki are tied at 5-under 139 after 36 holes going into today's final round of the Callaway Hawaii State Open at the Hawaii Prince Golf Course.

Hayashi, a pro at the Hilo Municipal, shot a 70 yesterday while Sieradzki, a teaching pro at Kaneohe Klipper, posted a 71 after sharing the first-round lead with Ko Olina's Mark Chapleski at 68.

Chapleski had a 1-over 73 yesterday to stand at 141, a stroke behind Makena pro Brian Sasada, who carded his second straight 70.

Sixty-one players made the cut at 155.

Defending women's champion Christel Tomori took a six-stroke lead over Joan Shimozaki with a blistering 7-under 65 for a 36-hole score of 143.

Tommy Ukauka shot a 69 for a 139 and a one-stroke lead over defending champion Dean Prince in the senior flight.

Klein's picks added up
to Football Fever win

As Waianae High School math teacher Daniel Klein made his Football Fever picks last week, one would figure there'd be a lot of calculation involved in his method of selection.

"I usually go by my feelings and sometimes I even flip a coin," said Klein. "Last week, I just had a feeling that TCU would beat UH and that the Cleveland Browns were due to finally win one."

Choosing mainly by instincts, Klein was a perfect 10-0. His ballot was chosen as this week's Football Fever winner.

Klein will receive the weekly prize of $500 and a pair of Hula Bowl tickets.

He has submitted multiple entries per week for two years now, but this was his first perfect ballot, thanks in part to Cleveland's last-second Hail Mary touchdown pass that beat New Orleans.

Klein says he won't have a problem finding uses for his prize money as he and his wife recently had a baby girl.

Bown WAC Player of Week

For the third time this season, University of Hawaii women's volleyball star Heather Bown has been named the Western Athletic Conference Player of the Week.

Bown keyed the Wahine's two road victories last week at San Jose State and Fresno State, recording a combined 32 kills and hitting .338 with five aces.

The 6-foot-3 senior middle blocker also had 23 total blocks, including a 16-block effort against the Spartans that was her career high as well as an all-time UH record for a four-game match.

Her 14 block assists against San Jose State tied a WAC single-match record. Sharing the mark is BYU's Ann-Mari Lindqvist (1995).

UH Wahine stay at No. 3

The University of Hawaii women's volleyball team remained ranked third in the USA Today/AVCA Coaches Top 25 poll released yesterday.

The Wahine (19-1) received 1,350 points. Holding onto the No. 1 spot is Penn State, with 58 first-place votes and 1,495 points, while Stanford stayed at No. 2 with the remaining two votes and 1,418 points.

PacWest award to HPU's Friis

Freshman cross-country runner Christian Friis of Hawaii Pacific was named the Pacific West Conference male newcomer of the year yesterday.

Friis finished second by five seconds at last weekend's Regional Meet at Bellingham, Wash.

The top 10 finishers in the men's and women's races earned all-conference honors. They included Friis, Ryan Drobnick and Elinor Klang, also of HPU; Hawaii-Hilo's Jesus Villavicencio, and Monique Mata of Chaminade.

UH harrier earns WAC honors

Casey McGuire-Turcotte, a sophomore cross-country runner for the University of Hawaii, was named second team all-WAC yesterday.

McGuire-Turcotte placed 11th at last weekend's WAC championship meet
