Juniors Hanna Mar and Rachel Kahan, and sophomore Annie Mulholland joined the coaching staff as they tested their balance, strength and wave-riding-abilities during a morning paddle boarding session. Despite a number of falls (both graceful and not so much), the team had a great time stepping outside of their comfort zone. When asked if they would do it again, the three all shared similar responses...probably not.
After a morning at sea, the third-ranked Blue Devils travelled back to the courts at the University of Hawaii for a fantastic afternoon practice. While the team was working hard on the court, members of the staff including team psychologist, trainers and strength and conditioning coaches joined the party by hosting a workout session of their own just steps away from the court.
The Blue Devils will have their last practice Tuesday before the two-day Hawaii Invitational Jan. 9-10.
