A fun event today, with the Gov. showing up. Shoji was his humble self as always. He was at the capitol for Lingle’s state of the state address and she acknowledged him and how the Wahine lifted the state. Today, she promised to be at the 2011 regional since she would have some free time then.
The seniors gave their speeches, Cubi-Otineru’s through a taped phone call from Puerto Rico and Kaufman from Albuquerque through SKYPE. Cubi-Otineru’s mom said that Aneli had been asked to come to the national team but decided to go play pro for a few months then go to the training center.
Athletic Director Jim Donovan said the Shoji’s three-year contract has been extended another two years so he’s under contract through the 2014 season.
And no, no Amanda Gil sighting. Pretty much a done deal that she’s at UW.
