University of Hawaii beach volleyball player Katie Spieler and men’s swimmer Kacy Johnson were the recipients of the 2016 Jack Bonham Award in recognition of their outstanding performances on and off the playing field. T

The award is given annually to the top male and female senior student-athlete who “best exemplifies the ideals for which Jack Bonham stood for in the areas of athletic excellence, academic achievement, public service, leadership and character.”

On the court, Spieler is a four-year starter and captain and holds the program-record with 102 career victories.

In the classroom, she graduated summa cum laude in three years from the Shidler College of Business with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and will receive an accelerated master’s degree in accounting next week with a perfect 4.0 grade point average. She was selected to the Dean’s List seven times; was a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) for three years; and received two other “H” Awards on Tuesday – The Jenny (top academic scholar-athlete) and Rainbow Wahine Athlete of the Year – in addition to her “Heart of the Team” award at the 2015 “H” Awards.

    Just a thought on why FSU was the overall #1 seed. If USC was the #1 seed, USC, UCLA, and Hawaii would have been on the same side of the bracket.

    Looks like the warriors got a commitment from captain of the Bulgarian junior national team, Radoslav Parapunov. He looks like a good one. Now Stijn can maybe play outside hitter.

    Good news now hope the wahine take down UCLA tomorrow, will there be a live stream? Anyone waking up at 5 am to watch?
