Weekend Recap IV
What an exciting weekend, local boy Yancy Medeiros defeats Damon Jackson in UFC 177 with an unusual choke. Putting Yancey with a professional record of (10-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC). Yancy Medeiros capitalized when Jackson, anxious to take the bout to the ground, exposed his neck and offered up a submission opportunity. Congratulations Yancy, keep making Hawaii proud!
This past weekend our own University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors faced off against the #25 ranked Washington Huskies. Even though our boys fell short of the victory, they sure did put a fight! Denying the Huskies any points during the 2nd half, the Warriors left the field with pride. A strong start for our football team this year despite all of the controversy and fuckery the UH staff and media are stirring up. The game is about our boys putting in hard work and representing for Hawaii, let the old folks worry about the rest. Anyway, ending the game with a score of 17-16 with the Huskies pulling in the victory, its safe to say our Warriors came to play and came to Defend Hawaii. This weekend they will be playing Oregon State. Good Luck Hawaiians, we all believe in you!
Support Local Athletes IV
This weeks local athlete is not one, nor two people, but an entire team of dedicated women. We would like to congratulate Neko and the entire Deep Roots team for winning this past weekends Softball tournament in Molokai. The tournament was August 16th-18th held at Kaunakakai Molokai Regional Park. ASA Rules applied.
Being an athlete does not necessarily mean you need to be apart of a professional team or organization. Being an athlete means you have the hard work & determination to excel in however big or small the sport you play is. These women showcased that this past weekend & represented #DefendHawaii doing so. Thats how you support local everything. Local brands, local athletes, locals supporting locals. Once again we would like to congratulate team Deep Roots for the victory & thats it this week for our #SupportLocalAthletes segment. Until next time, keep supporting local & always Defend Hawaii
