    Good she de-committed from Missouri. The Midwest is 100% different from Hawaii. She would have been tremendously homesick there.

    This girl is the best example of a perfect athlete and role model. She leads the team and motivates everyone around her. Her dad Malu is a kind and caring Individual who is nice to everyone and always giving back to the school in every way possible. He is extremely humble in his ways although his daughter has achieved so much success.

    Wish we could see Punahou in the mix.
    Does anyone know why they have been struggling for three years?
