2015 Hunting Tournament to benefit the keiki of Punana Leo o Manoa.
Punana Leo o Manoa is one of five Hawaiian immersion language preschools located on the island of Oahu. The student body consists of 18 students, ages 3-5 years of age. Each year, the families, organized as the Hui Makua of Manoa, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, fundraises to support programming at the preschool and create additional learning opportunities for the keiki and their ohana. This is our first hunting tournament and we ask for your kokua to make the event a success.

“The University of Hawai’i women’s basketball team (22-7, 14-2 Big West) enters this week’s Big West Conference tournament as the No. 1 seed with the double bye. The Rainbow Wahine will start their play in the tournament in the semifinals and will face the lowest remaining seed on Friday, March 13 at 12:00 p.m. PT (9:00 a.m. HT) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.” – Hawaii Athletics
“The Rainbow Wahine are taking their 14-game win streak into the tournament. It is the longest win streak during newly named Big West Coach of the Year Laura Beeman’s three-year tenure. The 14-game win streak ties the 1989-90 team’s longest win streak in program history. It is also the longest since UH won 19-straight games under then head coach Vince Goo in 1997-98. Hawai’i clinched their first conference title with a 47-46 win at Long Beach State on Feb. 26. It is their first conference title since the ‘Bows won the Western Athletic Pacific Division crown in 1997-98 under Goo. It also marks UH’s third Big West title after Goo led the ‘Bows to back-to-back first place finishes in 1992-93 and 1993-94. Hawai’i is looking for its second conference tournament title, UH won the Big West tourney in 1995-96.” – Hawaii Athletics
After reading this article through the Hawaii Athletics webpage, all I can say is this is great news for our Wahine representing UH Basketball. Showcasing their hard work and dedication to excel is a great look. We wish the entire team GOOD LUCK in this years Big West Tourney. Everyone back home will continue to support you ladies, continue to represent and show ’em how Hawai’i do!
