On this day in 1966, Kamehameha was primed to show its stuff in track and field.
There were no records broken in the trials, but the Warriors qualified full contingent. They beat Duncan MacDonald‘s Kailua squad by 18 points the next day to take the team crown.
Kailua’s MacDonald was the big star, breaking the ROIA record in the mile the week before following it with the state meet-record. He was only a junior.
Other records broken the next day were Iolani’s mile-relay and Kauai’s Jon Makanai setting the mark in the high jump.
