HONOLULU, HI – Hawai'i Pacific University will add women's golf as a varsity sport beginning in the 2012-13 academic year.
"I am a huge fan of women's golf. The addition of a women's golf team is an asset to the HPU athletics program and to the university," Lorick said. "I am honored to serve as the head golf coach for both the men's and women's teams."
The Sea Warriors will compete in the Pacific West Conference with the remainder of the HPU athletic programs. In 2012-13, women's golf will debut as a PacWest sport.
"We're tremendously pleased that Hawai'i Pacific is adding women's golf," Bob Hogue, commissioner of the conference, stated. "It's another example of the growing nature of the PacWest - up to 15 official sports next year. We look forward to the Sea Warriors participating in the historic first PacWest women's golf championships in 2013."
