Aloha, Hawaii; Miyashiro on USA Cup roster; Anae on US JNT

Slowly recuperating from Thursday, a very long day.

There will be new videos and photos up in a few days on Hawaii Warrior World. Stay tuned.

We left the hotel at 545 a.m. for hour-long flight from Prague to Amsterdam.

Amsterdam airport is huge, about a 3/4 mile walk from arrival gate to departure gate. much longer than walking HNL main terminal to neighbor island baggage claim.

Then, like the H-1/H-2 merge, Magill, Maglio and Huff went off for a flight to Seattle, the rest of us flight to LAX. our flight took about 10:20. Enjoyed the service on KLM, the Royal Dutch Airlines. they had 2 meals and snack time, which was your choice of ice cream or “salty snack” not sure what that was but little cup of ice cream was refreshing.

Customs a little different than the last time I had to use it in 2010. Much more high tech.

Shoji, who is staying in California to watch USA men play (both boys on the team) Greeley and Koelsch left us there. Koelsch excited to get her stitches out of her hand today. It wasn’t a happy trip for her but she is such a positive person. Even on the bench, very encouraging, making observations to the coaching staff. She and Higgins spent a lot of time on the trip together.

Then LAX to HNL, flight about 5:30. a little delayed. landed around 9:30 p.m. so from hotel to Prague to HNL, a long travel day of over 27 hours.

Not sure what all the players will be up to until second summer session. Both Adolpho and Long beginning master’s programs.

Have a few days off then USA Volleyball Cup next week. U.S. V China.

    looks like somebody was right about hawai’i letting adora anae getting away.

    to previous thread po’okela: are you sure you looked at the right video? nuts about 30 second video? where? you mean the ad? do you mean the other posts video?

    to cindy: can you ask SA where is the video found on SAs youtube concerning Hawaii wins 3-1 over Slovenian junior team? if it exists then obviously its found on SAs youtube because thats where it would be embedded/linked from. wherever it is, it sure isnt in that post and it sure aint my browser or anything else as ive used different mediums including electronics that not are mine to look at the post to find the said video.

    1. wait i just noticed this. “Video:” was removed. cindy was there no video in the first place/typo?

    Hawaii didn’t let Adora Anae go. She opted to leave Hawai’i for better opportunities. As much as Hawai’i would love to keep ALL the top talent in the state, not all of them want to stay home.

    2. don’t know. think the video was mis=catalogued. and it’s on another thread. Which is what everyone else has been able to view and which is why the ‘video’ tag was removed.

    3. Agree. Players choose to go elsewhere for various reasons and opportunities. Sometimes it’s all about the timing and scholarship availability.

    also, new gallery up on second week of WahineEuro
