Pearl City's Calpo to play for HawaiiCarmen Calpo, a four-year player for Pearl City High School, has verbally committed to play soccer for Hawaii next year.
She had received interest from Fresno State and made an official visit to State University of New York at Stony Brook.
"I realized when I visited Stony Brook that I did not want to go away from home," Calpo said.
Calpo was an Oahu Interscholastic Association West Division first-team selection and a Star-Bulletin second-team all-state pick last year.
"Carmen is probably at 50 percent of her potential because she constantly improves," said Chargers coach Frank Baumholtz.
"She is a totally open-minded player who is becoming a team leader because of her own confidence. She has a sense of seeing the play before it happens."
The 5-foot-8 striker was the second leading scorer in the West Division last year. She also participates in cross country and track (800 meters).
