    KS Hawaii beat Konawaena and are undefeated right now. They have size and speed and experience with two four year varsity starters and one three varsity starter. They are solid ten deep and should make some noise. Can’t believe they’re not mentioned.

    This is who Kamehameha-Hawaii has beaten so far. It’s not like they have beaten Iolani, Kaiser, or Punahou. I can believe they are not mentioned. Maybe when they are 10-0 and have some wins over top teams then it might change.
