PacWest Champs! 
Our win yesterday against UH-Hilo clinched the PacWest title outright, guaranteeing a seed in regionals.  The challenge is now to finish out our last 2 games strongly in hopes to gain a higher seed and possibly host the regional tournament.
Here's the write up from our athletic department.

Seasiders Clinch PacWest Title
Hilo, HI- The 18th-ranked Brigham Young University-Hawaii women’s soccer team defeated UH-Hilo 3-0 today to clinch the Pacific West Conference title.  The Seasiders, now 13-0-2 overall and 11-0-1 in the PacWest, won their second PacWest title in the last three years and will also be playing in the NCAA II Tournament for the second time in three years next month.
After a scoreless first half, freshman Kim Micheletti scored the opening goal of the game for BYU–Hawaii, her eighth of the year, in the 54th minute off an assist from Emily Mearns.  Natalie Cude tallied in the 62nd minute, with Micheletti getting the assist, and Natasha Aiono closed out the scoring with a goal in the 73rd minute, again with Micheletti getting the assist. The Seasiders out-shot the Vulcans 15-8 for the game.  BYU–Hawaii goalie Megan McCain saved six shots to record the shutout.The Seasiders will play on Tuesday against Hawaii Pacific at 3:00 pm in Laie.

Road Trip
We also have some late pictures from our road trip.  On one of our rest days, we took a trip to Snow Canyon National Park in St. George.  We hiked along the butterfly trail and enjoyed some beautiful scenery.

Laie Temple Open House
This week we went as a team to the Open House for the Laie, Hawaii Temple.  After 20 months of being closed for renovations, it has finally been reopened...and is open to the public through November 13th.
Below is a video the school newspaper put together about the open house, and our pictures.

Road Trip Fun!

We've had a great road trip so far! So far we've played 2 games at Grand Canyon University and came out with a tie and a win against one of the top teams in our Conference and Region. Congrats girls! We're so grateful for all our wonderful fans that came out to support our games and we can't wait to meet up with more friends and family in St. George. We've been here for two nights now and its been very different from the weather we faced in Arizona. All day we've had rain, thunder and lightning! and we've been wearing jackets!!! Quite different from the weather we thought we'd see. Today we face a season defining game against Dixie State. They are a very strong team in the conference and will present a great challenge. You can follow our game with live stats here! We play at 1pm Mountain Standard Time.
