U H Hilo golfer
Dustin Franko

University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo volleyball player Alexandria Parisian and men’s golfer Dustin Franko helped lead their teams to dominating tournament victories this past weekend, earning each a Pepsi award.

Parisian was a big factor in UH Hilo sweeping its island rivals twice to improve to 7-1 on the season. Parisian totaled 39 kills in four matches with 10 service aces, eight block assists and 40 digs. She had 10 kills and hit .444 in a 3-0 win over Hawaiʻi Pacific University (HPU) and had 14 kills and 13 digs in a win over Chaminade.

Franko continued his solid season with a second-place finish at last weekend’s Hawaiʻi Challenge at the Waikōloa Beach Course. The sophomore finished at even par over two rounds 69-71 (par 70), to help his team win the challenge, topping HPU by nine strokes and Chaminade by more.
