The Warriors started the season at No. 7 and steadily knocked off teams until reaching No. 4 in the latest Star-Advertiser volleyball poll. ‘Iolani was Kamehameha-Hawaii’s latest victim, moving the Raiders down to No. 5. ‘Iolani was coming off its best match of the year, […]

Waianae won’t quit

by Nick Abramo on August 30, 2014

With two losses now, it is doubtful No. 9 Waianae will maintain its spot in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Top 10 when the new rankings come out Monday. The Seariders made a gallant comeback Friday night at Raymond Torii Field, but were outclassed 46-27 by No. 8 Leilehua (3-0, 3-0). Despite constant hassling by its defensive […]
