Waianae faces ‘big task’ against Mililani

By Nick Abramo on October 15, 2017

Waianae coach Walter Young called it a “big task” when told his team would be playing Mililani in the Oahu Interscholastic Association semifinals on Friday at Aloha Stadium. And it is a tall task. No. 3 Mililani (9-0) is humming on all cylinders and no defense has given them a tough rub yet. That’s where Waianae’s defense comes in, possibly. The seventh-ranked Seariders’ unit on that side of the ball will have to play well if they are to have […]

By Nick Abramo on September 23, 2017

There are a few stats that come screaming off the page after No. 6 Waianae’s 44-0 homecoming victory over Aiea on Friday: >> The Seariders rushed for 158 yards (which also means Aiea’s defense held them to those yards) and passed for 144 for a super-balanced offense. >> Waianae will have won five games in a row when next weeks’s forfeit victory over Kaiser becomes official, and those five wins came after three straight losses to open the season — […]

Mauga making his case as best in state

By Christian Shimabuku on September 10, 2017

If big-time players make big-time plays, then Kana’i Mauga is as prime as it gets. It seems that the Waianae senior is making his bid for defensive player of the year honors each time he takes the field this season. He added to his hot streak on Saturday night against Radford, taking an interception 71 yards to the house. It was the Seariders’ first touchdown of the game and it set the tone for a 47-15 rout. “All the credit […]

By Billy Hull on September 3, 2017

Rico Rosario stands alone at the top of Waianae’s long list of powerful running backs through the years. The 5-foot-8 senior broke West Keliikipi‘s single-game rushing record that stood for 20 years with a 243-yard performance in a 43-20 win over Moanalua on Saturday night at Ticky Vasconcellos Stadium.
