Student athletes were honored at the annual varsity athletic awards ceremony.
Jake Tsukada took a first-pitch offering and slammed it over the right field fence to walk fourth-ranked Punahou off with a 5-4 victory over No. 3 Iolani in the 10th inning of an Interscholastic League of Honolulu Division I matchup at Goeas Field.
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.
