For a few days, they will be the Alohatoppers.


Science Hill took flight Monday morning out of Knoxville with a destination of Honolulu, Hawaii. The Hilltoppers made the 10-hour flight to participate in the Merv Lopes Classic, which begins Wednesday in the Aloha State.


“I think the kids are excited about the whole thing,” said Science Hill head coach Ken Cutlip, whose team is 12-1 on the season. “It’s something they’ve been looking forward to. We’ve got some kids who haven’t flown before, and I don’t think any of them have been to Hawaii. It should be a neat experience.”


Science Hill opens play against Hawaii’s Farrington High School in the 16-team field. Tipoff is scheduled for 11 a.m. Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is 4 p.m. EST.
