Michelle Wie happens to be one of the leading women golfers, from the Punahou School in Oahu and Stanford.

Paula Creamer is the other young woman with Martha and Michelle in the last picture above, then they're sitting

We've had plenty of outstanding Lancer athletes in the 1960s, from Clivie Cooper to Dave Modesitt to Jim Bucheister, Fred Crawford, Jim Hobson, Don Martin, Aaron McGuire, Steve Hartshorn, Wayne Redfearn, Gary Bowden, Gordon Levy, Larry MacDuff, Dave Murphy, Terry Hackett, Rick Raczka, Jim Wagner, the Dehn brothers, Bob Hawk, Jim Hawley, Buzz Young, Greg and Andy Fall, John Kent, Greg Beam, Tom McCutchen, Richard Kaufman, Kendall Mills, Greg Nolan, John France, Gordon Carter, Jon Hermes, and more -- who did I forget? And also Terri Wagner, Terry Jelenik, Nat Theibert, Judy Scheid, Pat Conger, Marolyn Hawk, Caroline Pearce and many other women -- before there were even organized teams and officially sanctioned competition for women.

But no one was a better student-athlete and citizen than Martha. 

Since 1980 or so, Sunny Hills had been a power in golf -- men and women -- tennis (also both), soccer (both), sometimes softball, and occasionally other sports, We had one of there finest badminton teams anywhere until the program was dropped.

In the near future, I intend to feature some of the finest Lancer athletes recently, I think you’ll be surprised at their excellence and achievements.
