BIIF basketball finals: Honokaa beats Kamehameha 54-32 in Division II girls
KEAAU — Chancis Fernandez scored 19 points as Honokaa topped Kamehameha 54-32 in the Big Island Interscholastic Federation Division II girls basketball championship Saturday night at Keaau High’s gym.
Eliyah Fernandez and Shemika Frazier each added six points and Shayla Ignacio had five points for the Dragons, who led 21-12 at halftime.
Casey Poe scored 18 points and her sister Caitlin Poe added five points for the Warriors.
Both teams can turn their attention to the Hawaii High School Athletic Association Division II state tournament, where Kamehameha and Honokaa placed first and second, respectively, last season. The tourney runs Feb. 5 to 8 on Oahu. (Only the D-I girls state tournament is part of the regional pilot program.)
The Dragons (11-2) finished as the BIIF runner-up to the Warriors the last two years and last won the league title in 1997, long before statewide classification.
The Warriors (9-4) saw their reign as the six-time BIIF champions end. However, they are the two-time defending Division II state champions.
Kamehameha 4 8 6 14 — 32
Honokaa 9 12 9 24 — 54
