Pearl City’s Sarah Domingo once again proved she’s the queen of the court, claiming her fourth OIA girls singles championship.

Domingo defeated Kalaheo’s Larissa Teramura 6-1, 5-7, 6-2 for the girls singles crown Saturday at Central Oahu Regional Park. She is the first to complete the slam since Mililani’s Alyssa Tobita.

“Four years, it’s pretty difficult, but I couldn’t have done it without all my family, my friends and especially my coaches and teammates supporting me,” Domingo said.


Teramura, a freshman, pulled out the second set despite needing treatment a couple of times for leg cramps.

“It takes a lot of strength to keep going and I commend her for that … the good fight she put up against me,” Domingo said.


Mililani junior Kylie Hull and senior Allena Wong defeated Pearl City’s Kira Gatiuan and Cara Tamaye 6-0, 6-2 in the girls doubles final.


“We put so much hard work throughout the weeks just preparing for this exact moment and I’m just so grateful to Allena,” said Hull, who the OIA doubles crown last season with Taryn Fujimori.

Next up for the top OIA singles and doubles players is the HHSAA state championships to be held May 9-11 at the Mauna Lani Sports & Fitness Club.
