Sandhoff sets seven
marks for Pirates

KIM Sandhoff (Pearl City) concluded her career at East Carolina University as the most prolific offensive player in Pirate history.

The 5-foot-6 senior striker holds the single-season and career records for goals (10, 27), assists (15, 28) and points (27, 82). She compiled those numbers in 71 matches.

She also unloaded 60 shots on goal in 2000, breaking her own single-season record.

"Kim is the best player to come out of the ECU program thus far, and she has the numbers to prove it," ECU head coach Rob Donnenwirth said.

Sandhoff also was named all-Colonial Athletic Conference second team for the fourth consecutive season.

The Pirates finished 10-7-2.


Carla Overbeck, the United States national women's team captain for three world championships and the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, will play her final international match Sunday against Japan at Phoenix.

Two world career leaders, Mia Hamm with 127 goals and Kristine Lilly with 223 international appearances, also will be in the U.S. lineup.


Starr Johnson (Punahou) has been named to the Pacific 10 All-Academic first team. She maintains a 3.74 grade-point average in ethnic studies.

She also was an All-Pacific 10 honorable mention selection as a defender. Johnson, a junior, started 19 matches for the 4-15-1 Ducks.

Allison Hamada (Punahou), a nutrition major, was named to the Pacific 10 All-Academic honorable mention team for the third consecutive season. The senior defender and co-captain returned from a broken collar bone in preseason to play in Oregon State's last 13 matches.

Also in the Pac 10, Tiffany Sabado (Castle), a junior midfielder, scored one goal in 20 matches (17 starts) for Arizona. The Wildcats struggled to a 3-15-2 record under first-year head coach Kathy Klein.


Freshman midfielder Ann Kamae (Leilehua) played 1,551 out of a possible 2,000 minutes this year for the Teikyo Post University (Waterbury, Conn.) Eagles and scored one goal.

"Ann played a good bit and had ample opportunity to be involved (we only had 14 players on our roster)," said head coach Rick Bryant. "Unfortunately for us, Ann has not taken well to the cold weather here and plans on transferring out after this semester."


Kurt Kagawa, a freshman midfielder from Mililani High School, scored a goal and assisted on four others for the 7-4-3 Whitworth College Pirates during the 2000 season.

Sophomore defender Nick Schreiner (University High) had one assist.

Both played in 16 matches.


Despite missing the final seven matches this year with a leg injury, Shanon Hopkins (Hilo) still finished as Linfield College's second leading scorer. The junior striker hit the back of the net 10 times and assisted on two goals for 22 points.

The Wildcats (22-1-1) lost to Messiah (Pa.), 3-2, in an NCAA Division III semifinal match.


In two matches, Nate Adams (Iolani), played 55 minutes, 29 seconds as the backup goalkeeper for the 15-7-2 Bradley University Braves.

The redshirt junior allowed one goal, his first in 222 minutes of limited duty over three seasons, and had one save.


Freshman midfielder Erin Sayegusa (Kaiser) scored one goal on 21 shots and had one assist in 19 matches (nine starts) for Fresno State.
