UHH athletics honor roll

  • Women’s basketball player Sara Shimizu helped UH-Hilo athletics achieve a banner year in the classroom.

A school-high 117 student-athletes earned Pacific West Conference Scholar Athlete honors, meaning 68% of the Vulcans’ athletes in 2019-20 who competed in at least one competition accumulated a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher.

Women’s basketball had the highest percentage of scholar-athletes (eight of nine) – Jessica Goodluck’s 4.0 led the way – while women’s soccer had the most honorees with 19.
