Today at Punahou

After sinking into a 3-0 hole early on, Punahou battled back with Iolani to tie it up at four runs at the end five innings before Buffanblu starting pitcher Bailey Akimseu opened up the lead with a three-run opposite-field slam to help her squad outlast the Raiders, 8-6, in a Saturday afternoon Interscholastic League of Honolulu matchup at Iolani School.

Each year, Punahou hosts a Brain Symposium with a focus on learning and the brain. This winter, Punahou welcomed back Dr. Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa, a leader in the field of the teaching philosophy that incorporates research from neuroscience and psychology, to lead the conversation among attendees.

The Buffanblu played for one another throughout the course of the season and their execution on both ends of the floor culminated in the school's first state title since 2012 over Kahuku, a team that routed them in last year’s final.

The Bears, ranked 10th in the ScoringLive/HawaiianElectric Power Rankings, punched their ticket to the final with a stunning 3-1 win over two-time defending champion and top-ranked Punahou in the late semifinal Friday night.

Alumni Stories

Michelle Broder Van Dyke ’04

“Scaramucci has been fired!” Michelle Broder Van Dyke ’04 announces President Trump’s recent ousting of his communications director. Her dog, Kolea, sitting comfortably on a plush office chair nearby, perks up her ears.

Malcolm Ing ’52

It’s a late weekday afternoon and Dr. Malcolm Ing ’52 is busy at work in his office. He is still updating patient profiles when we meet for a chat to reflect on his life and his long career as an ophthalmologist. Cloaked in a crisp white laboratory coat, Ing strides agilely across the clinic. His office looks out over a gorgeous panorama of swaying palm trees, the cool blue waters of Ala Moana Beach Park stretching out into the distance.

Salt spray, jostling waves and sudden downpours: These are certainly not ideal conditions for a camera. For Hokule‘a photographer Monte Costa ’74, these factors are just a part of the job as she braves the elements to create her iconic images.
