Molina scores 45 vs. Ka'u


In 2013, Chanelle Molina already has led Konawaena to a Hawaii High School Athletic Association title in volleyball and a state runner-up finish in basketball. Molina went out and added another memorable night to her banner year Tuesday in Pahala.

The sophomore guard scored 45 points as the Wildcats coasted past Ka‘u 69-11 in a Big Island Interscholastic Federation girls basketball game.

It’s little wonder Molina holds a scholarship offer from the University of Hawaii.

With the win, Konawaena improved to 2-0.

Denisha Navarro scored six points for the Trojans (0-2).

Honokaa 52, Kealakehe 8

Chancis Fernandez scored 13 points and the Dragons held the Waveriders scoreless in the second and third quarters to easily win at home.

Shereena Bird added 10 points for Honokaa (2-0).

The Waveriders, who got two points apiece from four different players, fell to 1-1.

In junior varsity, Honokaa won 66-15.

Kamehameha 45, Waiakea 20

Casey Poe scored 13 points, Riana Arima added 11 and Caitlin Poe had nine as host Kamehameha held Waiakea scoreless in the first quarter and never let up defensively to improve to 2-0.

“We blocked out well and only gave Waiakea one opportunity each time,” Kamehameha coach Garrett Arima said. “Waiakea didn’t shoot that well and we kept up our intensity the entire game. Good man-to-man defense, and we switched some things.”

Shaila Apele led Waiakea (0-2) with seven points, and Kaydee Rapozo had six.
