Jared Kinoshita

Kinoshita went tee-to-tee this past week at the 28th annual Amer Ari Intercollegiate Golf Tournament. Playing in a field that featured all NCAA Division I golfers and UH Hilo, Kinoshita finished 12 out of 109. The senior shot a 66 on the first day, and completed the three rounds with -7, shooting a two-under 70 on the final day.

Allie Navarette

Sophomore Navarette had another pair of big games—one in a Vulcan win and another in a impressive upset attempt. In the 84–51 victory over Academy of Art University, she had a career-high 32 points and 12 rebounds. Against second-place Dominican, she went toe-to-toe with PacWest Player of the Year, Natalie Diaz, and came away with 18 points and 10 rebounds—her 11th double-double of the year. The Vulcans led the Penguins in the fourth quarter before the title contender pulled away late in the game.
