By Jerry Campany on November 26, 2017

Now more than ever, volleyball talent in Hawaii resides in the ILH. Oahu’s private-school league garnered 12 of the 15 players on the Star-Advertiser’s season-ending All-State team, tying the record it held in 2015 and 2008. The fewest ILH players on the Fab 15, which began in the Star-Bulletin in 2007, was eight in 2013. So the ILH has always had more than half of the representation. Kamehameha put three players on the Fab 15 this year, with all of […]

By Jason Kaneshiro on November 4, 2017

LIHUE >> Damien coach Eddie Klaneski took a moment for a deep exhale after the clock hit zeroes to punctuate the Monarchs’ win over Kauai on Saturday. The 13-10 victory at Vidinha Stadium was far from pretty, but as they had for much of the season, the Monarchs found a way to pull out a win, this one sending them to the Division I final of the First Hawaiian Bank/HHSAA State Football Championships. In their third straight state tournament appearance, […]

By Jason Kaneshiro on August 13, 2017

After watching Saint Louis complete a second straight dominant performance, Crusaders coach Cal Lee was typically reserved in his initial evaluation of a 61-0 rout of Baldwin on Saturday. “We gotta look at the film and see where we can get better,” Lee said as the Crusaders boarded the team buses at the top of the ramp leading out of Aloha Stadium’s north tunnel.
