Background on the squad: Derrick Obatake has been leading the Hitmen charge into the Airsoft games since last season. The squad is slowly growing and this year Derrick wanted to visit longtime friend Brandon Cayetano and play some Airsoft and Paintball at Brandon's famous field in Hawaii: Hawaii All Star Paintball and Airsoft Games. Some longtime OG Hitmen and one newer Hitmen signed up for the Hawaiian adventure! From the OG old guard Tony Tran, Chris Tregarthen joined Derrick. Both Tony and Chris are lifetime paintballers and have been with the Hitmen since day one. They also enjoy airsoft with Derrick when he talks them into it.
On to the lady killers: Linh Truong also signed up, she has been a Hitmen since 2008 helping bring home multiple 1st place wins with the pump squad. Linh made headlines in 2012 when she joined up with Bea Young's Destiny family in midseason for semi auto based tournaments. (The Hitmen and Destiny are close teams and borrow players and help each other often) And a newer face to the Hitmen family is Kat Secor who is actively earning her wings this year playing airsoft, pump paintball and big games with the Hitmen. Those of you who follow the tournament paintball scene know Kat Secor as the captain of Bea Youngs' Destiny Paintball and a former Femme Fatale team member. The final member of the this weekends crew is Kat Gong who came out with Tony and the rest of the team to join in on the Hawaiian adventure, Kat Gong made paintball history back when she was barely able to play by starting the Fallen Angels out of New Jersey. It was the youngest all female paintball team in history. This was such an important step for females in paintball they were featured in the very first Facefull issue ever (Issue #1). Kat Gong who has played on both Destiny and LA Hitmen squads in the past has since retired from the field but is active with helping run the UWL with Tom Cole. Ok enough of the history lesson lets see what happened.
