Favorites: Raion Black, Mike Chin

A quick Q&A with Christian Academy track standouts Mike Chin and Raion Black. Together, they are the “dynamic duo,” as coach Rick Chin says. The feature story on the two Patriots ran in this morning’s Star-Advertiser. But here’s a little more. Bonus stuff. Because you are a devoted Hawaii Prep World reader and we love you. OK. Most of you.
