Kamehameha senior Devez Aniol and Hilo senior Shayden Kang finished first and second at the HHSAA air riflery tournament on Tuesday at Blaisdell Exhibition Hall.
KEAAU – It’s always a good sign for Kamehameha when junior outside hitters Nani Spaar and Tiani Bello are taking healthy swings and the volleyball is bouncing off defenders with no shot for the opposition to return fire.
KEAAU — It was death by a thousand paper cuts for the UH-Hilo women’s soccer team in a 1-0 loss to Hawaii Pacific and maybe its postseason hopes as well.
WAIMEA – She doesn’t always run with overwhelming pace, but on this day Honokaa’s Sophia Cash felt an extra kick. She went out fast, pushed hard and didn’t let up, never giving anyone else a chance.
There was one shot, from Laurie McGrath’s beach volleyball experience, that summed up Hilo’s hitting strategy against Kealakehe.
Kamalu Makekau-Whittaker blinked her eyes and couldn’t believe that she’s more than halfway through her volleyball career at CSUN, a journey that gets more fulfilling by the day.
There was immediate strong interest on both sides between Waiakea junior Safea Villaruz-Mauai and UH coach Mike Trapasso, who only needed one look to offer a scholarship on the spot.
Now, Hilo and Waiakea can rigorously prepare for next week’s major fight, one that determines their season: a trip to the HHSAA tournament or a long offseason at home.
