BY KATHY HANSBERRY — The University of Hawaii (UH) Women’s Soccer team kicked off their 2016 season with three back-to-back Outrigger Soccer Classic Series at the Waipio Soccer Complex.
As tournament sponsor, #teamOutrigger was on-site with UH/Outrigger hand fans for the first 500 enthusiasts at each game and free ice cream cups for the first 200 fans on opening day of the first series, courtesy of our partner Brio Ice Cream. The ever-popular Kona Shaved Ice truck was also on-site for all the other games handing out free shaved ice to the first 200 fans, courtesy of Outrigger.
To top things off, attendees who visited our Outrigger tent were entered to win a prize pack filled with logo merchandise worth over $100, and participants of the halftime Keiki “On-field Promo” walked away with an Outrigger goodie bag.
Congratulations to the Rainbow Wahine for taking home the trophy for all three tourneys. Special thanks to Stephanie Nojima and David Carey who represented Outrigger and awarded the trophies to the winning teams during the awards ceremonies.
