MANOA (KHNL) - Elizabeth Ka'aihue's family is full of athletes, and most of them are attracted to one sport in particular.

"Dad played professional baseball, and then my two older brothers are playing professional baseball with the Kansas City Royals and the Oakland A's, they're still in minor ball, so it's not the major leagues yet, but it's still something," said Ka'aihue.

But it wasn't something for Elizabeth. She gave softball a try, and it just wasn't for her.

"A little too dirty, they put me in as catcher, I got a lot of bruises, didn't really like it, it's dirty," said Ka'aihue

And while she didn't like the game, the idea of being a professional athlete is something she can handle.

"I like beach volleyball a lot, maybe look into that after," said Ka'aihue

As for her family on the court, there seems to be trend between her teammates and their respective boyfriends.

Aneli Cubi-Otineru is dating Warrior offensive lineman Sila Lefiti, while Dani Mafua's boyfriend is Warrior right guard Ralph Ieru. So what about Elizabeth?

"No football players for me, I do have a boyfriend but not a football player," said Ka'aihue

And there's one more thing you might not know about Elizabeth.

"I don't get mad that fast, I'm pretty fun, not too much bothers me," said Ka'aihue
