Over 70 apply for Wahine
track coach opening

By Pat Bigold


More than 70 applications have been received for the University of Hawaii women's track and field coaching job, according to assistant athletic director Marilyn Moniz-Kaho'ohanohano.

She said that if she receives 80 applications postmarked by the Feb. 29 deadline, it will be the most interest ever shown for a women's coaching position at UH.

Athletic director Hugh Yoshida has put the program "on hold'' while he looks into other options for the women's athletic program, including outrigger canoe paddling. But Moniz-Kaho'ohanohano said she is proceeding with the hiring process.

She said she is surprised with the number of applications for the position because the job was not advertised on the NCAA website until Feb. 22.

It was only posted in local newspapers before then.

Moniz-Kaho'ohanohano also is exploring the feasibility of other sports, including riflery, bowling, rowing and wrestling.

Moniz-Kaho'ohanohano said Yoshida told her that he will make a decision by March 31 on whether or not the women's track and field program will become a reality, as originally planned, in spring 2001.
