Injuries hit ‘Iolani girls, boys

By Paul Honda

It’s still just preseason, but ‘Iolani’s boys and girls basketball teams have already suffered casualties.

The girls lost standout guard Kylie Maeda for the season after she suffered an ACL injury to her left knee in the opening seconds of a game during last week’s ‘Iolani Classic girls tourney. The sophomore said she’ll have surgery soon, then have months of rehab work ahead. She expects to be back by next season.

The Raider boys lost Kainoa Scheer, a 6-foot-2 center, to a torn meniscus recently. He said he will have surgery and return in three weeks. That’s enough time to play at least half of ‘Iolani’s regular-season schedule.

Both are tough breaks for the Raiders. Both the boys and girls programs are among the most dedicated — if not the most — in the state with summer leagues and year-round conditioning.
