Varsity Football - Arrived!

August 30, 2017

The team left Punahou Tuesday in a torrential downpour that drenched everyone thoroughly, but promised blessings for the trip. While waiting for the plane, the boys had a lengthy study hall (Is a reflection congruent? I'm all out of batteries for my calculator!)

Players, coaches and chaperones arrived in L.A. before 6 a.m. and quickly loaded the equipment truck and the buses. Then it was off to UCLA for an all-you-could-eat buffet breakfast at the dorms (where the boys certainly got their money's worth). A short walking tour of campus was followed by a trip to the impressive Athletic Hall of Fame and the bookstore. Look for the team photo in front of the UCLA Bruin.

By the time the buses were boarded to head for San Diego, the boys and coaches were exhausted and many slept through the two hour drive. While waiting for rooms to be ready, it was another study hall opportunity.

An early evening practice at University of San Diego was preceded by a bus tour of the gorgeous campus. The grand finale of a very full first day was a buffet dinner at Soup Plantation, a chalk talk and final study hall. Everyone is more than ready for a good night's sleep!
