UH-Florida State softball game canceled
Tuesday’s rainy weather put the University of Hawaii softball team’s pursuit of the longest winning streak in the program’s history on hold.
UH’s game against Florida State scheduled for Tuesday night was canceled due to the wet conditions. The game will not be rescheduled. The Rainbow Wahine will play Thursday against Radford to open the four-day Pepsi Malihini Kipa Aloha Tournament.
The Wahine moved up three places in both national polls after winning five games in the Bank of Hawaii Invitational over the weekend. UH is 19th in the USA Today/NFCA coaches poll and tied for 19th with Auburn in the ESPN.com/USA Softball Collegiate Top 25.
At 17-0, UH is off to the best start in the program’s history and is one victory shy of the win-streak record set in 2010 when the Wahine won 18 straight during the Western Athletic Conference schedule.
