The Islanderz girls basketball team had a phenomenal performance that was hotter than July.

The Islanderz, coached by Scott Cambra, went 5-0 in the Cal Storm tournament’s highest division, Showcase/Diane Taurusi. That netted the team from Oahu co-championship honors with EBO Black in the nine-team division, which had no playoff bracket.

Members of the Islanderz: Cheyenne Ardona (Mililani), Isabella Cravens (Maryknoll), Salara Dill (Radford), Kalena Gibson (Mililani), Kehau Gililand (Maryknoll), Kawai Kahalehoe (‘Iolani), Ka‘imi Kalei (St. Francis), Brooke Napier (Mililani), Moe Notoa (Maryknoll), Rhianne Omori (Maryknoll) and Jette Steitzel (Maryknoll).

On day 1, the Islanderz outlasted Storm OC Elite (Calif.) 46-36. On day 2, the Islanderz edged Cal Storm 17 Elite 41-37, then beat Colorado Combined 51-39. They defeated NM Dream (Albuquerque, N.M.) 49-29 and closed the tourney with a 42-26 win over EBO-Red (San Diego, Calif.). All games were played at Sierra Catholic High School in Irvine, Calif.

A week later, the Islanderz went 4-1 in the LA Run & Gun Tournament in Garden Grove to finish their mainland trip with a scintillating 9-1 mark.
