Keaau is the new BIIF paddling super power, and Tadeo is at the middle of all the success.
The senior steered the Cougars’ mixed crew to its third league championship Saturday, and she also was the steersman as Keaau’s girls dethroned three-time defending champion Kamehameha.
“It feels so good. … That’s why we’ve stayed together all these years,” she told the Tribune-Herald.
