2014 University of Hawaii
Aloha United Way
From its inception in 2006, the University of Hawaii-Aloha United Way Softball Tournament has developed into a tradition that sparks camaraderie and friendly competition among the University of Hawaii's Oahu campuses and administrative offices. Team entry fees and other donations raised during the softball tournament go towards the University's Aloha United Way (AUW) campaign.
In support of the 2014 AUW Oahu Campaign, UH once again held the tournament at Les Murakami Stadium. Teams from each Oahu campus and the UH System administration competed in the double-elimination tournament for bragging rights and went to bat in support of bettering lives within our community.
AUW Participation Challenge
To make this friendly competition even more exciting, the Oahu campuses and UH System offices held a participation challenge that positively impacted three teams during the softball tournament. See the Tournament Rules for more details.
A final tally of participation for this challenge was taken on Wednesday, October 15, 2014.
Congratulations to the First Place winner Leeward CC with a total of 25% participation. Their softball team received a "bye" in the first round of the tournament.
Coming in Second Place was the UH System with 19% participation, earning their team a 2-run advantage which they used in their first game. Third Place went to Honolulu CC with 15% participation, earning their team a 1-run advantage which they used in their first game.
Mahalo to all the Oahu campuses and UH System offices for taking part in this challenge and helping to support the Aloha United Way!
