Beaching It….

Walked down to Waikiki Beach for University of Hawai’i Wahine beach volleyball since today was the only scheduled home date. It’s officially called sand volleyball (if your school doesn’t have an ocean conveniently located nearby.)

The matches are held at the Queen’s Beach Sandbox which has four adjacent courts.

There was a nice crowd of fans and tourists. Diamond Head makes for a nice backdrop.

Here’s our #1 pair, with “Walls” in the background.

On the way back, I stopped by Marukame Udon for lunch. It’s the only restaurant in Waikiki that has a constant line all the time.

You go down a cafeteria style assembly line to pick up your udon and assorted tempura side dishes. Mmm, so ono….

Girls Rule….

Seems like the University of Hawai’i Wahine teams are starting to overshadow the men’s Warrior teams. The softball team made it to the College World Series for the first time, guaranteeing a top 8 finish. The Wahine volleyball team ended its season at #3 in the nation. Pretty sweet….

The future does look bright for the entire sports program. The men’s baseball team just won the WAC and the basketball team’s recruiting class was ranked as the 7th best in the country.

The only question mark is the football team. Hopefully, Coach Mac can get things back together again. Until then, the Wahine will continue to have the lead story on the local sportscast. Girls rule….
