Lahainaluna gets a break before Division II football tournament

By Jerry Campany on November 2, 2019

Defending state champion Lahainaluna will await the winner between Roosevelt and Kamehameha-Hawaii to begin its defense in the state Division II football tournament. The Lunas will host the winner of that game on Nov. 23. The Lunas have played a state tournament game at home twice and won both, beating Kaimuki 7-0 in 2015 and Roosevelt 48-10 last year. Kamehameha-Hawaii, which hosts Roosevelt on Nov. 16 for the right to travel to Maui, has not been nearly as successful on […]

Losses lifted Kaimuki to list of OIA winners

By Christian Shimabuku on October 27, 2019

David Tautofi’s squad didn’t have a choice but to gut it out. With just 26 players suited up, Kaimuki rose to the sweltering occasion and pulled out a 27-24 […]

Kaimuki senior Kaulana Kaluna Jr. helped force an interception on defense in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s OIA Division II title game with his pressure on Roosevelt quarterback Sky Ogata. He put his arm down to break his fall, and was worried immediately he might have broke something. The play ended with Keith Hallers intercepting a pass off a tip by teammate Sione Taufa, sending the Kaimuki fans in the stadium on their feet in jubilation. The volume went from […]

By Paul Honda on October 20, 2019

This might not be the final chapter, but if it is, the Kaimuki Bulldogs are doing all they can to send coach David Tautofi out with a championship parade.

By Noelle Kakimoto on October 12, 2019
