Wahine bring deHay
back to Hawaii

Former Kamehameha Schools soccer standout Robyn deHay will transfer from Stanford and join the Wahine, Hawaii coach Pinsoom Tenzing said yesterday.

DeHay spent the last two seasons with the Cardinal, who were nationally ranked and made the NCAA tournament each year. DeHay played eight games as a freshman and nine games as a sophomore, scoring two goals.

"Robyn brings a wealth of experience to us," Tenzing said. "She spent some time at one of the top programs in the country and played in two postseasons. Robyn is a wonderful one-on-one artist who has phenomenal speed and we are absolutely pleased to have an experienced talent like her in our program."

DeHay, a former Gatorade State Player of the Year, is the fourth player to transfer to Hawaii in the past two seasons and second from Stanford. Erin Quattromani came from the Cardinal last year.

UH falls to No. 1 UCLA 10-2

LAS VEGAS >> The ranked teams just don't stop coming for the Hawaii softball team.

After being routed yesterday by No. 1 UCLA 10-2 in the UNLV Desert Classic, the Rainbow Wahine get another chance today -- against the defending national champions.

Hawaii (4-5, 2-2 tournament) rebounded yesterday to win its second game against Central Michigan 3-1, and plays No. 3 California in its last game of the tournament today. Cal (10-1) was beaten for the first time yesterday, losing 6-1 to Nebraska.

UH lost earlier in the season to No. 6 Washington.

Shannon Tabion (2-3) struck out eight and scattered five hits to beat the Chippewas. Stacey Porter hit a solo home run.

Against the Bruins, Melissa Coogan (2-2) gave up 11 hits and eight runs -- four earned -- in 5 1/3 innings. The game was shortened to six innings.

Cal sophomore outfielder Kaleo Eldredge helped the Bears win the NCAA title last year. Eldredge was a teammate of Tabion's at Baldwin High School. The two guided Baldwin to the 2001 state championship.

Eldredge, who has missed five games this season, is hitting .308 with three RBIs, including one yesterday in the loss to Nebraska.
