Pirates In Paradise - Day 4
March 6, 2010
Aloha Pirate Nation,
Day four here in Hawai’i and the weather is gorgeous with the temperature sitting just under 80 and a slight breeze. Due to today’s two games, the team did not get much free time. The players woke up, ate breakfast, got ready for the games and loaded into our sport utilities to head to the field.
Sumner Home Again
“I’m really excited about playing UH tonight. I know a lot of the girls through travel and high school softball and am really looking forward to playing them.
“Growing up, I watched a lot of Hawai’i softball games on TV and came to the park to watch the team play. Now I’ll have the opportunity to play in that same stadium. Hopefully the atmosphere tonight will be friendly, but of course it will be intense and maybe a little heated at times. It’s all for fun, but we really want to win.
“We’ve played lots of ranked teams this season (Washington, Florida and Georgia Tech), but this is the game we have had circled on the calendar. We know Hawai’i usually has a good team, so this will be a big test for us.”
Aona And Tom On Playing Hawai'i
To give people more of an idea about what it means to play the Rainbow Wahine tonight, Tom explained it as, “People from North Carolina get really excited to play the University of North Carolina. It’s that same kind of importance and excitement for us playing Hawai’i here tonight.”
