Chandler Cowell graduated from King Kekaulike in 2018 and has spent the past four years and St. Mary’s College in California, where she excelled both indoors and on the range for the Gaels, most recently leading the indoor team kills (219) while earning first-team All West Coast Conference honors at the range.

Because she redshirted the 2018 indoor season and the 2020 season does not count toward her eligibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cowell will have two seasons of eligibility for UH, starting this fall.

“I think that’s exactly what was meant for me. I think that’s exactly what I needed to finish my college eligibility,” she told KHON2’s Alan Hoshida. got this redshirt year my first year indoors, and this COVID year gave me another, so now I have the potential to play two more seasons indoors, which is a blessing in all honesty I would do it again if I knew this is how it would end because it’s worth it I always dreamed of playing for them.

“I went to the mainland and had an amazing experience, but now that I know I’m coming home it’s come full circle for me. It’s exactly what I had to do and the exact way I had to do it. It’s really hard to put into words. It doesn’t seem real. I visited the campus yesterday with the coaches and it was crazy. It finally hit me. I was walking around the Manoa campus and I was like, ‘This is my home for the next two years. That’s it.'”
