Hawaii Pacific Signs Three Ball Players including a BIIF star outfielder

Hawaii Pacific University recently announced the signing of three players for the 2012 season.  The Sea Warriors have inked Jayce Carvalho, Sam Cooke and Tre Halburton-Goes according to the University’s Athletic Department.

During last season’s Big Island Interscholastic Federation Carvalho led Kamehameha School-Keaau to the Division II as an outfielder earning First Team All-League recognition.

Carvalho guided Kamehameha to a state runner up finish and was named to the Hawaii High School Athletic Association All-Tournament Team.

Joining Carvalho at HPU next year will be Haliburton-Goes from St. Louis High School.  Last year Haliburton-Goeas helped the Crusaders to the Interscholastic League of Honolulu title championship and a semi final appearance in the HHSAA Division I Tournament.

Halburton-Goeas is expected to pitch for the Sea Warriors.

Joining the Halburton-Goeas and Carvalho will be Sam Cooke from Manchester College in Connecticut.

Cooke is expected to help the HPU pitching core and brings with him some collegiate experience as he made his debut with the University of Rhode Island Rams in 2010, pitching three consecutive scoreless innings against Fordham, Quinnipiac and Massachusetts.

HPU begins it baseball season with an Alumni game on February 5, before opening the regular season with a four-game series against Patton University starting on Friday, Feb. 11.

Last season the Sea Warriors set a new school record by posting a total of 39 wins and advancing to its first ever NCAA Regional.
