For anyone who has been to the Moanalua gym recently, you’ve seen this big, colorful, beautiful new scoreboard.

It’s way more than a scoreboard actually. It’s made up of multiple TV screens and can be used for presentations at school assemblies and also by coaches to show live or recorded videos of a practice session for instructional purposes.

Joel Kawachi, the Moanalua athletic director, briefly told Hawaii Prep World about the capability of the equipment during a state boys volleyball match on Wednesday night. It can can be controlled with input from any laptop or desktop computer, and Moanalua students are benefitting from learning how to make interesting displays.


Kawachi said that Christian Academy athletic director Robert Helsham works for the company that makes the device, which Moanalua has been using since the start of the 2015-16 school year.

Kawachi added that it won’t take the place of a basketball scoreboard because you need a clock at both ends of the court. But it can be used to show basketball players’ stats, including number of fouls. It can also show highlights of a game in progress.

    To rank Baldwin ahead of Kamehameha is not accurate. I watched them played at preseason and Baldwin had absolutely no chance of beating Kamehameha.
