The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa won the 6th Annual AUW Softball Tournament held on Friday, September 30 at the Les Murakami Stadium. The tournament raised $1,731 to support the 2011 Aloha United Way Oʻahu Campaign.

Teams from the six Oʻahu UH campuses—Mānoa, West Oʻahu, Honolulu, Kapiʻolani, Leeward and Windward—along with the UH System administration and Aloha United Way competed in a double elimination tournament.

Aloha United Way President Kim Gennaula delivered the inaugural pitch, with UH System Vice President for Student Affairs and University/Community Relations Rockne Freitas serving as catcher and Mānoa Assistant Athletics Director Marilyn Moniz-Kahoohanohano at bat.

With dedicated fans, door prizes, garlic fries and donations collected throughout the evening, the teams played hard until the final game between Honolulu Community College and UH Mānoa with Mānoa claiming the 2011 championship. Debra Ishii, Mānoa team captain, and her team took home the coveted President’s Trophy along with bragging rights for the year.
