2015 University of Hawaii -
Aloha United Way
From its inception in 2006, the University of Hawaii-Oahu Campuses Softball Tournament benefitting the Aloha United Way 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 2015 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 a double-elimination tournament for bragging rights and to support the bettering of 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.
Congratulations to the First Place winner Leeward CC with a total of 28% participation. Their softball team received a "bye" in the first round of the tournament.
Coming in Second Place was UH System with 14% participation. Third Place went to Honolulu CC with 12% participation. The UH System and Honolulu CC teams earned a 2-run and 1-run advantage, respectively, used in either of their first two games.
Mahalo to all the Oahu campuses and UH System offices for taking part in this challenge and helping to support the Aloha United Way!
