    Hi Cindy,

    new thread up for Tuesday.
    6. She spells it Robyn, not Robin.
    9. only teams I am aware of are Washington, UCLA, West Virginia and perhaps Utah Valley. but UH won’t announce schedule until contracts are signed.
    10. Bailey Choy has not committed to UH yet. We’ll see if she ends up here. Wouldn’t be surprised.
    But am pretty sure they’re getting a foreign player who is a setter for fall.
    11. thanks. it is up on the new thread

    If Bailey Choy has not committed to the Wahine, then why did UH athletics issue a formal press release that she is?
