ON THIS DATE (2014): Kamehameha sweeps Iolani in star-studded affair

Tiyana Hallums and Sarah Lau were inducted into the Hall of Honor following their high school careers. Kayla Afoa joined them two years later.

There is no such thing as just another ILH volleyball match.

On this date in 2014, No. 1 Kamehameha swept Iolani 25-21, 25-23 at Kekuhaupio Gymnasium to improve to 8-0.

Kealani Browne, Tiyana Hallums and Kayla Afoa led the way for the Warriors, but they were far from the only stars on the hill that night.

Kamalani Akeo, Sarah Lau, Mia Heirakuji and Hallums all were selected to the Fab-15 after the season. Kayla Afoa, Shiloah Peleras, Brooke Kaawa, Kili Robins and Kyra Hanawahine joined the list the next year, giving the 2014 team nine of its 17 girls elite recognition.

Iolani didn’t make it to the state tournament, but was loaded as well. Junior setter Bailey Choy led the way, but the roster contained future Fab-15 selections Moea Kekauoha, Sierra Buscher, Saige Kaahaaina-Torres and Ana Oglivie.

That makes it 14 future fab 15 members in one match. Browne and Iolani senior Anna Uhr never made the list, but the were among the best of their peers that year.

For all of the star power, Kamehameha lost to Punahou in the state championship match that year, but the Warriors and Raiders have traded state championships every year since.
