By Rick Schonely
The Molokai Boys Volleyball team finished as runner up in the state Boys Volleyball Championships on Oahu last weekend. The Farmers were seeded number two and defeated Kaimuki 3-0 (25-14, 25-21, 25-18) and Damien in a thrilling five-set match broadcast live on Oceanic XCast 3-2 (22-25, 25-22, 25-20, 19-25, 15-9) before losing in the final at the Neal Blaisdell Arena, and also live on TV, to the number one seed Hawaii Baptist 3-0 (25-16, 25-15, 25-20).
Hawaii Baptist has won five straight DII Boys Volleyball Championships and six out of the last seven.
Head Coach Hale Domingo was very excited for his team.
“State tournament, wow! We loved every minute of it,” he said. “The experience was wonderful and having the exposure for the team, the school and the island of Molokai… I couldn’t ask for anything else.”
He said he and his fellow coaches and the team are thankful to be Farmers and grateful for everyone who has supported them.
