University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa women’s soccer senior forward Kelci Sumida claimed a spot on the 2022 Big West Women’s Soccer Preseason Coaches’ Team after being selected to the Big West Second Team a year ago.
In 2021, Sumida led the Rainbow Wahine with five goals scored while starting in all 14 matches. Four of her five goals were against conference opponents, including her first career multi-goal match against California State University, Northridge.
As a team, UH also received a No. 7 ranking in the 2022 Big West Women’s Soccer Preseason Coaches’ Poll.
The Rainbow Wahine are placed one spot above where they finished their 2021 campaign. UH wrapped up with a 2-9-3 overall record while going 2-5-2 against the conference. The squad was selected at No. 6 heading into last season.
UH will officially begin its regular season on August 18 as the team takes on Western Athletic Conference preseason favorite, Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona.
