The Buffanblu finished at the top in both the final boys and girls team rankings to add to their state championship total Saturday night at the Island Movers Track and Field Championships at Kunuiakea Stadium on the campus of Kamehameha Schools Kapalama.
Sixth-ranked Punahou pounded out 14 hits — highlighted by Bailey Akimseu's towering two-run sixth-inning home run — to back pitcher Kennedy Ishii's complete-game effort en route to a convincing 11-3 semifinal win over three-time defending champion Campbell at Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium Thursday night.
For the 13th time and 11th year in a row, the Punahou Buffanblu took home the Stanford Carr Development/HHSAA Girls Water Polo State Championship in an 8-5 victory over host Kamehameha at Kalaniopuu Aquatic Center Saturday evening.
In a rematch of the 2016 title game, it was déjà vu all over again as Punahou swept Moanalua, 25-19, 25-16, 25-21 in front of a crowd of 1,539 to win their seventh-straight New City Nissan/HHSAA Boys Division I Boys Volleyball Championship at the Neal S. Blaisdell Center on Saturday.
