The Hawaii Pacific Sharks are the 13 varsity athletic teams that represent Hawaii Pacific University, located in Honolulu, Hawaii, in NCAA Division II intercollegiate sports. The Sharks compete as members of the Pacific West Conference. Hawaii Pacific University’s first venture into intercollegiate athletics came with the formation of the men’s basketball team. The university previously competed in the NAIA before joining the NCAA in the mid-1990s. On August 1, 2014, HPU athletics announced that they had changed their name from the Sea Warrior to Sharks as part of a fundraising effort and to “better align ourselves with the rest of the university.” As part of the new logo rollout, then-HPU Executive Athletics Director Vince Baldemor promised to secure 1,000 memberships in the HPU “Sharks Club” within the first three months. The program was a major failure with membership failing to exceed 300 after two years. Baldemore was relieved as athletics director.
