So Punahou’s coach, Elizabeth Kam sent an email to parents today resigning from her head coaching position at Punahou School.
Rumor has it that Shawna Kuehu will take over with no previous coaching experience on her resume. Is this what $20,000 buys you nowadays?
I heard it “could of” been a forced resignation. Anyway if it was, I agree with the admin on this one. Not a good hire. How do you go from losing like 80-90% of your games (if not more) at Mid Pacific, losing your JV program since girls don’t want to play in your program, to not being retained by MPI, to getting hired at Punahou. It makes no sense.
This program is talented but senior heavy. Not that much at JV or Int to help. Hope the next coach can develop interest in the program again.
