New girls VB coach among Govs’ changes

Changes are coming to Farrington High School’s campus, but there’s one that involves the girls volleyball program.

Barney Choy is the new head coach, athletic director Harold Tanaka said. He replaces Reagan Agena. Choy has experience as a club coach. His daughter, Bailey Choy, plays for ‘Iolani.

As for other changes, it’s a long-term picture that has begun with the football and track facility. The grounds are currently being redone to make way for an on-campus stadium. The tennis courts on the northeast portion of campus are already gone.

“That was done in one day,” Tanaka said.

The tennis courts will be part of a renovated upper campus (next to the freeway), along with a new pool. The current area where the old pool is will be cleared to make way for a new gymnasium, Tanaka added.

“The plans for the new gym just got approved,” he said.

A four-story student center is also in the plans.
