Ineligible player forces
Campbell out of states

The Campbell High School softball team will not participate in next week's state tournament after discovering an academically ineligible player participated in games during the season.

Campbell athletic director Duane Izumi said the school discovered Thursday the player played in games despite not meeting academic requirements. After meeting with parents and league officials yesterday, the Sabers forfeited an undisclosed number of games and withdrew from the Chevron State Softball Championships.

Campbell beat Kaimuki 10-7 in 10 innings on Jan. 18 to claim fifth-place in the Oahu Interscholastic Association playoffs and the league's last spot in the state tournament.

This is the second time an OIA team forfeited games for using an academically ineligible player. Earlier this month, the Pearl City boys soccer team forfeited seven games after a player forged a grade-check.

Sea Warriors top 'Bows on the tennis court

The Hawaii Pacific men's tennis team is not only the best in the nation in Division II, it proved to be the best on the island, regardless of division.

The Sea Warriors, ranked No. 1 in Division II, beat Division I Hawaii 5-2 yesterday at Manoa, getting wins from its top two singles and all three doubles teams.

"It was a good match for us," Hawaii Pacific coach Henry Somerville said. "UH had some chances in the doubles, but we were able to close things out."

Mike Maata started things off for the Sea Warriors (2-1), beating Reginaldo Moralejo 6-4, 6-3. No. 2 Blaz Jurjec took care of Justin Monolascino in straight sets, 7-6, 7-5. Matey Pampulov and Karl Sloss were HPU's other winners in singles while Jan Tribler and JorgeGonzalez won their matches for UH(2-4).
