Kurtistown’s Sarah Dvorak has been on the Big Island tennis radar for much of the past decade.
Punahou’s Andrei Iosivas and Kamehameha-Hawaii’s Chenoa Frederick put on highlight performances at the HHSAA track and field championships, winning an unmatched three individual gold medals each.
On its final chance, UH-Hilo’s baseball team hit 21.
About three-quarters of the way through Chenoa Frederick’s 400-meter race, Kamehameha coach Manly Kanoa saw the expression on her face.
Kamehameha’s softball team doesn’t have to look any further than its brothers and sisters on the school’s girls basketball, boys soccer and baseball programs to see that winning state crowns is often a process.
It wasn’t 41 feet and it wasn’t easy, but Chenoa Frederick is golden again.
Bryce Furuli’s bases-loaded tripled highlighted Kamehameha’s five-run first inning, and the seven-time BIIF champion Warriors rebounded to beat Waianae 7-3 in an HHSAA Division II tournament consolation game at Hans L’Orange Park in Waipahu, Oahu.
Season after season, Kamehameha added to its BIIF softball dynasty, but like clockwork, the Warriors were never able to muster much success after leaving the Big Island.
