    No disrespect meant, but how does the POY and COY come from a team that barely made it to states and wasn’t even league champion?

    Maa is the most dominant player in the final and she’s not even honorable mention?

    This might be the first time ever that a Punahou player is not 1st team😮😮😮

    Punahou is definitely first team at recruiting, though. RRFL!
