Kamehameha-Hawaii’s Chenoa Frederick had herself quite a weekend, laying claim to four individual events in the Island Movers/HHSAA Track and Field State Championships in rainy War Memorial Stadium in Wailuku, Maui.

Frederick, who took the long jump (18 feet, 2.75 inches) on Friday, added the 100-meter dash (12.56 seconds), triple jump (38-7) and high jump (5-1) to her gold-medal stash Saturday.

“I absolutely love this weather,” she said with drops of rain water beading on her forehead. “I’m from Hilo. … This is what we train in. This is what we love to run in.”


Frederick, who is only a junior, is a three-time triple jump state champion and is now a two-time state winner in the long jump and 100.

Seabury Hall’s Chloe Gangnath (2:20.71 in the 800, and 4:46.65 in the 1500), McKinley’s Narayana Schneider (4:04.40 in the 1500, and 9:07.13 in the 3000), Campbell’s Leilani Leopard (15.42 in the 110 hurdles, and 45.72 in the 300 hurdles), and Kamehameha’s Tanner Moku (14.54 in the 110 hurdles, and 38.72 in the 300 hurdles) were also double individual event winners.

Three others, Saint Louis’ Roman Wilson and Korvin Feagins and Punahou’s Kaila Ronquilio stepped up to the top of the podium twice with one individual win and one relay victory.

Wilson won the 100 (10.68) and Feagins won the high jump (6-7 Friday) and they teamed with Keanu Wallace and Keola Yadao to take the boys 4×100 relay (42.76) after setting the state-meet mark (41.54) in that events trials Friday.

Ronqulio won the girls 400 (58.52) and ran the anchor of the Buffanblu’s winning 4×400 relay team (4:01.66) that also included Ally Little, Kaylie Klausing and Maiya Fujiwara.

Klausing was on both of Punahou’s victorious relay teams. She also ran the third leg on the 4×100 team (50.15) that also included Stevie Marvin, Grace Blanchette and anchor Katie Weeshoff.

Radford’s Franklin Matthews held off Punahou’s Justin Pu’u-Robinson (the boys 400 champ in 50.82) to give the Rams the 4×400 relay crown in 3:22.95 to Punahou’s 3:22.97. The Rams’ Clayton Edwards, Ethan Dean and Michael Edwards also shared in that victory.


Waiakea’s Eric Cabais-Fernandez tied a state-meet record in the pole vault by clearing the bar in 15-3 and dethroning defending champion J. Kai Yamafuji along the way. No one in Hawaii at any level has done what Yamafuji did last year at the ILH championships — 16 feet.

Ronquilio’s 400 time of 58.52, Schneider’s 3000 time of 9:07.13, Gangnath’s time of 4:46.65 in the 1500, Zada Tagovialoa of Damien’s winning discus throw of 129-5, and Johanna Seng of Hawaii Baptist’s 10:12.93 in the girls 3000 all reached best of Hawaii in 2019 status.
