The HPU Sharks held its first golf tournament at Pearl Country Club.

HONOLULU —  The Hawai‘i Pacific University Athletics Department held its first HPU Sharks Golf Tournament at the Pearl Country Club in Aiea, Sept. 29, a sold-out event that supported student-athletes.

More than 30 three-person teams participated, with golfers getting to meet and greet HPU student athletes and coaches along the course. Vince Baldemor, HPU executive athletics director, said he was thrilled to see so many people in the community coming out to show their support.

“We thank everyone who participated in the tournament to show support for our program,” said Baldemor. “We are very excited and now look forward to seeing our fans and supporters at our S.H.A.R.X Benefit and Hall of Fame, later this month. Go Sharks!”


The HPU Hall of Fame Class of 2014 will be inducted on Oct. 28. This group includes some of the greatest people ever associated with HPU Athletics, including former Sports Information Director and Assistant AD Neil Everett Morfitt (now a renowned ESPN sports anchor), national championship winning volleyball coach Nahaku Brown, multi-sport star Lisa Blomme, and the entire 1992-1993 NAIA National Championship Men’s Basketball Team.

The 2014 S.H.A.R.X Benefit will be held at the Hawaii Convention Center on Oct. 28th at 5:30 p.m. The event will include a cocktail hour and a silent auction. For more information, see hpusharks.com/support.
