Playmakers Shine for Nanakuli, Kalaheo

By Kyle Galdeira on August 16, 2015

While both Nanakuli and Kalaheo suffered lackluster non-conference losses to open the 2015 campaign, the Golden Hawks and Mustangs proved Saturday night that watching their playmakers in action are worth the price of admission. The Golden Hawks relied on a fluid offense and tenacious “D” en route to a 28-14 victory over Kalaheo in the Oahu Interscholastic Association Division II season opener for both squads at Kailua High School. Nanakuli’s studs stepped up first, including junior quarterback Nainoa Banks, who […]

Kamehameha overcomes “jitters,” bests ‘Iolani

By Kyle Galdeira on March 8, 2015

It took Kamehameha an inning to overcome what Warriors starting pitcher Codie Paiva called “first-game jitters,” but the blue-and-white clad squad used a seven-hit, seven-run outburst in the fifth inning to best ‘Iolani, 9-4, Saturday morning at Hans L’Orange Park. Paiva, a six-foot, five-inch hurler, notched the victory after striking out six in as many innings. The senior also served as a catalyst at the dish, collecting two crucial doubles that allowed Kamehameha to erase a 2-0 first-inning deficit before it eventually […]

The Interscholastic League of Honolulu wrestling championships are in the books after a full day’s worth of action at Punahou’s Hemmeter Fieldhouse. Punahou took advantage of its home gym and relied on four individual title winners as the Buffanblu boys fended off Pac-Five (148 points) and Kamehameha (147 points). Kamehameha ran away with the girls title (192 points) after 10 of its wrestlers notched individual gold.

Paddlers Could Soon See New Sand

By Kyle Galdeira on February 19, 2015

Keehi Lagoon has become one of Oahu’s most heavily-used venues for participants, coaches and onlookers engaging in the state sport of outrigger canoe paddling. However, while the lagoon’s waters provide a fair, flat race course, the site has been devoid of a true sandy shore for years and the safety of those using the site has come into question. If a new bill making its way through the state legislature becomes law, the lagoon’s beach park will be replenished with […]

By Kyle Galdeira on February 8, 2015

As Punahou wrapped up its stellar sweep of the First Hawaiian Bank/HHSAA State Canoe Paddling Championships in the wind-whipped waters of Maui’s Kahului Harbor Saturday afternoon, Kamehameha-Maui athletics director Blane Gaison said calmly “Give ‘em a broom.” The former Kamehameha-Kapalama athletics director, pro football player and current canoe paddling enthusiast has become familiar with watching the Buffanblu excel at the state level in Hawaii’s state sport dating back to 2002 when the state competition was sanctioned. So, too, has the […]

Kaiser paddlers maintain winning ways

By Kyle Galdeira on January 24, 2015

It appears as though the Kaiser outrigger canoe paddling program has gotten the hang of winning on the water. In the first 13 seasons of the Oahu Interscholastic Association including paddling as a sanctioned sport, the Cougars came up short of winning any championship hardware. However, over the last two seasons, Kaiser has rallied to win three paddling titles including the boys and mixed titles during Saturday’s OIA championship regatta at Keehi Lagoon. With the addition of the brand-new hardware, […]
