The Warriors’ walk-on tryouts have been moved from today to March 5.
But running back Casey Lambert of American River College won’t have to wait for a slot on the Warriors’ spring roster. Lambert, who transferred to UH in January, is participating in the offseason conditioning program and is set to compete in spring training.
Lambert is 5 feet 10 and 195 pounds.
Here are his highlights: Lambert videos
As a Roseville (Calif.) High senior, Lambert rushed for 1,789 yards and 13 touchdowns, averaging 7.6 yards per carry and 162.6 yards per game.
As a junior, he ran for 1,587 yards and 18 touchdowns, averaging 8.3 yards per carry and 144.3 yards per game.
He also can be used as a kickoff returner and on defense.

With a rare full week of preparation, the volleyball Warriors take on Cal State Northridge tonight in the Stan Sheriff Center. First serve is at 7:05 p.m.
Last year, the Warriors had consecutive sweeps in the two-match series at Northridge. Head coach Charlie Wade did not use a timeout in any of the six sets.
For volleyball fans, this is another chance for the Friday combo: Taylor Averill in the front row and garlic fries on the cardboard tray.

Corie Kaimikaua was a woman whom everybody liked. Scratch that. Many people loved her.
Corie was smart, kind, gorgeous, generous and spontaneous. (Hips don’t lie. During a sales meeting several years ago, she broke into a Tahitian dance.)
Corie was a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, an altruistic organization dedicated to helping others and the community. It was fitting. She dedicated her life to helping others and the community.
Corie also led the sales team that worked behind the scenes in the early years of this blog.
Cancer won again, dammit. But Corie put up a good fight — with grace, humor and aloha.
We’ll miss her.
