Croson suspended from Hawaii volleyball team

The sophomore outside hitter will not make this week's road trip

By Star-Advertiser staff


Hawaii’s eighth-ranked volleyball team flies out tonight for its second Big West road trip and it will be without all-conference hitter Jane Croson. The sophomore is suspended indefinitely for breaking team rules, according to Rainbow Wahine coach Dave Shoji. He called it a “serious offense,” but would not elaborate.

Shoji said Croson she would be reinstated later if she “meets some obligations.”

The Wahine had hoped to redshirt freshman Tai Manu-Olevao this season, but have taken her on the trip and now expect to use her. She helped Punahou to the state championship a year ago as an all-state hitter.

Hawaii will decide on a lineup after Thursday’s practice. The team is scheduled to arrive in Los Angeles early Thursday and take a four-hour bus ride up to San Luis Obispo. The wahine play Cal Poly (1-14, 0-3) Friday and UC Santa Barbara (8-10, 1-2) Saturday.

My guess is that they will need a Senate inquiry to get the facts on this latest UH situation.

seriously? - from the BOR on down the chain, those who have taken noticeable "mis-steps" must rethink in great introspection and come to the realization that they are but a minor cog in the larger body - the larger scheme of the total environment. for too long, there have been those who are more pre-occupied with their personal gain and/or satisfaction instead of applying themselves as a contributing member of the whole. some might call it the result of the "entitleist" attitude which has been growing beyond decorum. unfortunately it is these few who are making the entire community look very bad. but all is not lost if surgical precision can be implemented to remove the proven "cancers".

Playing teams with a combined (9 - 24) (1 - 5) record. How difficult can it be without Jane? One person does not a team make, and the team will be stronger for it. Hope Jane gets her act together.

On the contrary, this has restored some of my respect for the UH. If Shoji had swept it under the rug and not said anything, that would have been more akin to the Wonder Blunder. I'm sure suspending Jane wasn't what he wanted to do, but it was probably in the best long term interest of the kids including Jane.

Get it going Jane, do what ever it takes, we (fans) want to see you get back on the court. And remember A QUITER NEVER WINS AND A WINNER NEVER QUITS.

I hope the team pulls together and plays as they are capable of and takes both mainland matches, but more I hope Jane sees how much she means to the team and does what she needs to do to get herself reinstated. If she can't then I'd say she was letting down her team mates, her school, her fans, but most of all herself. Young people make mistakes, but can learn and grow more mature from working through them. From the way she competes in big matches, I'd say that Jane is more than capable to find away to 'get the point' and help her team, school and fans with 'that good inside feeling.'
