� ��� ���� � ���� ���� �� ������ for BYU-Hawaii students. Fans of NCAA basketball may have struggled to focus on their studies last week, as March Madness set in, while students from Japan and Korea watched as their countries battled it out in the World Baseball Classic championship game on March 23. Japan repeated as world champions in a thrilling extra-inning final. In addition to these larger events, here are the highlights of several !"# $% #& '(#& # BYUH sports stories of the past week:


SOFTBALL ďšť The Seasiders split

games with Chaminade on March 21, in a Pacific West Conference doubleheader. Katresha Veazie, senior in exercise and sports science from Erda, Utah, was the star, pitching a five-inning one-hitter in the 9-0 opening win for BYUH. The Seasiders pounded out ten hits on the way to winning the game in five innings due to the eightrun rule. BYUH struggled in the second game, falling 4-0 to the Silverswords while giving up three unearned runs.

TENNIS ď&#x161;ť The Seasider women have

been nearly perfect on their road trip to the Eastern United States. BYUH continued its perfect season, defeating Fort Valley State (GA) 7-2 on March 19; and Division I school Alabama State, 7-0; and Tuskegee (AL), 5-0 on March 20 for a 17-0 season record. The only two losses sustained by the women were forfeits by Ayako Ikeda, sophomore from Kyoto, Japan, who was unable to play due to illness. The men matched the Seasider women, sweeping competition from the same schools, 9-0, 6-0, and 6-0. The menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season record stands at 13-3 through March 20.

BASKETBALL ď&#x161;ť Lucas Alves can now

add NCAA II Player of the Year to his already impressive resume. Earlier this week, Alves, junior in exercise and sports science from Casa Branca, Brazil, was named the Daktronics NCAA II National Player of the Year and to the All-America First Team. Alves has been garnering awards since coming to BYUH as a freshman in 2006 and has scored over 1,500 points and grabbed over 600 rebounds in his career as a Seasider. Alves helped lead the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team to a school-record 27-2 season this year. Alves attributed the award to the success of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is really a team award,â&#x20AC;? said Alves, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the team had not done so well, it would not have happened. I thank my teammates for this honor.â&#x20AC;?

GOLF ď&#x161;ť The BYUH menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golf team was just two shots out of first place in the three-team match on March 19. The Seasiders fell to Hawaii Pacific at the Ewa Beach Golf Club with a 305 on the par-72 course. Chaminade was third with a score of 368. Derek Hall, sophomore from Bountiful, Utah, led all golfers with a one-over 73 to claim medalist honors. The golf team will participate in the Thunderbird invitational on March 30-April 1, hosted by Grand Canyon, before the final match of the season, which BYUH will host on the Fazio course at Turtle Bay on April 6. 1 2
