All-BIIF D-I girls volleyball: Kamehameha sophomore Honma easy choice as player of year

  • KELSEY WALLING/Tribune-Herald Kamehameha outside hitter Maela Honma slams a ball past Hilo High in the BIIF D-I title game – much as she had all season. A threat from any spot in the rotation, the 10th-grader’s first player of the year honor isn’t likely to be her last. “I’m definitely excited and grateful to get this award,” Honma said. “A lot of people worked really hard, and I’m proud of myself.

Kamehameha outside hitter Maela Honma dominated BIIF competition, knocking down 14 kills against Hilo High in a sweep for the league title, 14 kills against Waiakea during a sweep and 12 kills against Hilo in an earlier sweep.
