No. 1 Crusaders have long wait ahead

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. Whatever issues arise in reviewing the footage, the Saint Louis coaches will have ample time to address them before the Crusaders take the field again. The Crusaders dispatched Waianae and Baldwin by a combined score of 110-7 heading into a 19-day break before opening ILH play against Kamehameha on Sept. 1. Saint Louis dominated in all […]

Hawaii’s best teams looking for a challenge

By Nick Abramo on August 7, 2017

The top three teams in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Top 10 are also in the MaxPreps national Top 150 after the latest rankings were released Monday. All three — Saint Louis (No. 21), Punahou (No. 68) and Kahuku (No. 136) have a chance to rise — especially since they are all playing national competition this year. Kapolei is just outside of the MaxPreps Top 150, at No. 153. The Crusaders host Narbonne (No. 67) of Los Angeles at Aloha Stadium on Sept. 23. The Buffanblu (1-0) play Torrey Pines (No. 532) of San Diego at Aloha Stadium on Aug. 25, and then they visit Junipero Serra (No. 16) of Gardena, Calif., in San Diego on Sept 2. The Red Raiders play […]

By Paul Honda on August 6, 2017

Top-ranked Saint Louis fit the billing with a 49-7 win over No. 5 Waianae on Saturday night at Raymond Torii Field. The defending champions were in mid-season form on both sides of the ball, led by senior quarterback Chevan Cordeiro on offense.

Lee: ‘We can’t just live on tonight’s win’

By Paul Honda on August 6, 2017

One game into the 2017 football season, Cal Lee isn’t losing an iota of competitive edge. If anything, the Saint Louis football coach is as hungry as ever to build the Crusaders into a championship team for the second time in as many seasons. A 49-7 win at No. 5 Waianae on Saturday night did little to soften his long-range goals for the top-ranked Crusaders. “I like what I saw, but I think we can get better. We can’t just live on tonight’s win. That’s where the film comes in. It’s very important. When you look at it, you can evaluate,” Lee said. The departure of All-State linebacker Dylan Toilolo (now at Kapolei) is a major loss, but Saint Louis […]

No. 1 Saint Louis starts with tough task

By Jerry Campany on August 5, 2017

When Cal Lee returned to Saint Louis a few years ago, part of the reason was to bring back a taste of the old days. The ways don’t get much older than a season opener in Waianae. From 1967 to 1975, Saint Louis began each season except one (1972) against Larry Ginoza‘s Waianae Seariders. Ron Marciel‘s squad made the trip to the West side in alternating years, making it the only visiting field his boys would play on throughout the entire season. The trip was not always kind to the Crusaders, absorbing losses of 34-0 and 17-0. All told, Saint Louis was 3-5 against the Seariders in that span, finishing the annual matchup with four losses in a row. Lee […]

Cal Lee was in a joking mood when told that he has never repeated for a state championship, and so he good-naturedly laughed it off. Technically, it’s true. The Saint Louis football coach won 14 Prep Bowl championships, including 13 in a row. He also has won two state championships, but those are 17 years apart. He earned the first one in the inaugural state championship season of 1999 and again in 2016. Voters have picked the Crusaders to repeat as the No. 1 team in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser preseason top 10. Lee is starting his 25th season as the Crusaders’ coach and fourth season in his third stint with the program that began in 2014. He was also the […]
