KEAAU – The idea was to bring together some of the smaller schools in the Big Island Interscholastic Federation for a preseason boys volleyball tournament.
Each senior class in any University of Hawaii sport usually leaves an impact on the program, one way or another.
Besides the good times he’s shared with them off the court, University of Hawaii at Hilo women’s coach David Kaneshiro will remember his eight seniors for their good wins on the court.
The season started with promise.
Sean Nearhoof doesn’t want to be that guy. The one who tries so hard to make the big play that he fails to deliver the small one and costs his team.
For the last seven years, it’s been a flip flop of title sharing between Kamehameha and Waiakea.
University of Hawaii at Hilo coach Kallen Miyataki had hoped Korin Medeiros was ready for a breakout season.
It’s a plan that worked wonders for Kamehameha during the Big Island Interscholastic Federation season.
The Kealakehe baseball program has been a work in progress over the last three years under coach Josh Hansen. Baseball on the Big Island is usually dominated by the east side, but Hansen is hoping to buck that trend and he believes he has laid down the foundation for a successful 2015 season.
The veteran teams built with a win-now mentality — with scoring stars and strong post players — had the Big Island’s best runs at the HHSAA state tournament.
Kealakehe bounced back from Thursday’s walk-off loss to Konawaena with a 16-6, six inning run-rule victory Friday afternoon over Hawaii Preparatory Academy on the second day of the Keaau preseason baseball tournament hosted at Konawaena’s Gabby Inaba Field.
Konawaena picked up its second win in the Keaau preseason tournament Friday night with a dominating six inning, 15-5 victory against the Keaau Cougars.
