Baldwin’s Rey Cadiz and Kamehameha-Hawaii’s Chenoa Frederick will be chasing their own records at the Island Movers/HHSAA Track and Field State Championships in early May.

And both have the top marks among Hawaii athletes in two individual events thus far in the 2019 season, according to athletic.net.

Cadiz, who holds the 110-meter hurdles state-meet record of 14.20 seconds, has the season’s best in the 110 (14.30) and 300 hurdles (39.49). He’s going for a third title in the 110 and a second in the 300.


Frederick, who holds the triple jump state-meet record of 39 feet, 10 inches, is Hawaii’s top performer in 2019 in the triple jump (38-7.25) and long jump (17-9). She is the defending state champion in the triple jump, long jump and 100-meter dash.

Three others have 2019’s best so far in two individual events: Seabury Hall’s Noah Payne (10.70 in the 100, 22.22 in the 200); Mililani’s Mackenzie Reed (25.82 in the 200, 59.28 in the 400) and McKinley’s Narayana Schneider (1:58.23 in the 800, 4:04.23 in the 1500).

Saint Louis’ Trenton Wailehua is among those to also watch out for. The defending 400-meter champion also has the best time so far in 2019 in that event — 49.42.

Korvin Feagins, Wailehua’s Crusaders’ teammate, has 2019’s top high jump so far — 6-6.

Saint Louis’ 4×100 relay team of Keanu Wallace, Wailehua, Feagins and Keola Yadao is aiming at the state-meet record. Their time of 42.20 this season is two-tenths of a second slower than Punahou’s record-setting team of Tanner Ono, Vincent Terrell, Justin Pu’u-Robinson and Andrei Iosivas last year.


The state meet is May 3-4 at War Memorial Stadium in Wailuku.

Listed below are the top times and distances so far in 2019, according to athletic.net, followed by the state-meet records. Asterisks denote defending champion.

    But what are the all-time state records? That’s what counts. Not just the best times and distances and state championship meets. Or does Hawaii only recognizes times at state championship meets? They not counting anything before 1980 when it was feet and inches? I remember the 1979 state meet held at Kaiser. The 100 yard hurdles had like 4 hurdlers that finished around 4.3 seconds. One was a Radford popolo, Gilbert Brown, who won it. Lee Scruton of Punahou was another. Louis Santiago of Kahuku I think was another.

    4.3 seconds on the 100-yard hurdles? Then the 40 yard dash time must be 1.8 seconds. Lol! smh

    Great that track and field is getting some print. a thousand boys and girls compete every week and there is not even meet results in the paper regularly, except for outer islands.

    Silly that you only can break state records at the state meet. Makes no sense… To answer the above question, these aren’t the all time state records, just the fastest recorded times at states.

    sorry, the 1979 high hurdles was 110 yards. Last year the state meet was held in feet and inches. The top 4 finishers ran like 14.3 seconds.
    Maybe only the state meet has recording instruments sufficient enough to meet the standards to certify state records.

    ILH Track and Field Championships start at 830am tomorrow (April 20th) at Kamehameha Schools, not 4pm as stated in the paper. There was a schedule change that wasn’t updated somehow. Good luck to all finalists!
