The work on the track around Nanakuli’s football field is complete and the Golden Hawks will play their final two regular-season games at home, Oahu Interscholastic Association athletic director Harold Tanaka said Tuesday morning.
Nanakuli’s home games are an Oahu Interscholastic Association Division II first-place test against Radford (7-0, 6-0) on Friday and against Kalani (3-4, 3-3) on Oct. 10.
Due to the work on the track, Nanakuli (6-1, 6-0) has not had a home game yet this season. The work was scheduled to be done in July and was pushed back several times. Two weeks ago, the OIA announced that the Golden Hawks would play the Radford and Kalani games at Raymond Torii Field at Waianae High, but the work has since been completed, making the home field available.
The Golden Hawks are defending OIA D-II champions and now, literally, as is printed on their fans’ T-shirts, they can, literally, “Defend the (Nanakuli) Valley.”
