Hawaii sports unifies team names

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The University of Hawaii is officially unifying its team nicknames across sports, with all men's teams to be known as the Warriors and all women's teams to be known as the Rainbow Wahine.

The university announced its decision Wednesday afternoon, one day after Athletic Director Ben Jay told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser the school was leaning in that direction after speaking with coaches, fans and student athletes.

Currently, the men's teams go by three different names. Some, including football, already call themselves the Warriors. The baseball team is known as the Rainbows while the basketball team is known as the Rainbow Warriors.

All the school's women's teams are already known as the Rainbow Wahine.

The change officially takes effect July 1.
