Today at Punahou

With a young roster including three freshmen and three sophomores, Punahou hasn’t missed a beat. Junior Jack Deuchar had 13 kills while hitting .423 and Christian Hong added seven as the visiting Buffanblu outlasted Kamehameha 25-19, 25-21 on Thursday night at humid Kekuhaupio Gymnasium.

Max Moonier's golden goal in the 87th minute lifted the Buffanblu over the Raiders, 1-0, for the school's 21st state title at Waipio Peninsula Soccer Stadium.

On a wet and slippery Tuesday afternoon, Punahou still set fire to their own turf at Alexander Field as the No. 3 Buffanblu blazed by top-ranked Iolani, 4-1, to capture the overall Interscholastic League of Honolulu Division I title and a seeded berth and first round bye in The Queen's Medical Center/HHSAA Boys Soccer State Championships next week.

Today at Punahou

As part of a pilot underway at Punahou, grades are all but gone in a handful of Academy classrooms, replaced by a mastery-based model of assessment, in which students get robust, frequent feedback of their progress based on skill sets.
