Tribune-Herald Athlete of the Week: Konawaena’s Molina

  • Cindy Ellen Russell/Honolulu Star Advertiser
    Konawaena’s Cherilyn Molina drives to the basket last Saturday against Maryknoll in a HHSAA Division I championship game in which Molina scored 22 points.

Konawaena, for once, was an underdog in Saturday’s HHSAA Division I girls basketball championship game after being seeded second.

Bad idea.


Cherilyn Molina scored 22 points with eight rebounds and was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player as the Wildcats won their fourth consecutive state title.
