While there is the seemingly endless debate on Aloha Stadium’s viability, we have learned — through Tom’s daily reminders — that UH has more pressing concerns on the Lower Campus.
Because of construction, a staircase and the main entrance to the athletic complex are closed, at least through spring break.
Gym I, used for volleyball practices (as well as a badminton club), appears old and worn.
What appears to be the original wallpaper is disintegrating.
There are three scoreboards that have not been operable for years.
A-House’s once gorgeous rock garden is in disarray, like a sore loser’s Scrabble board.
The sand volleyball courts look nice. Let’s hope they remain that way in a few years.

Mahalo to Rainbow Cliff for the coming up with the encased-jersey display that will serve to honor the memory of Reggie Carter and other UH athletes who have passed. Former UH basketball player Henry Hollingsworth will house the display. That relationship shows the bonds of sports. Carter was a New York City guard who also was a skilled rebounder. He might have been the program’s second-best player (behind Tom Henderson). Hollingsworth joined after competing in an open tryout.
