The Molokai High School Wahine Farmers took home the Maui Interscholastic League (MIL) championship win this season conquering the Seabury Hall Spartans 25-21, 25-17, 25-20 at King Kekaulike gym in the league's tournament final.
Considering Molokai has no seniors on the team this year and that the Spartans were undefeated last year, Friday’s win was a big deal for the Farmers. “These young ladies deserve every bit of recognition… they have been working hard and are very excited,” said Head Varsity Girls Volleyball Coach Matthew Helm.
Molokai dominated scoring six of the first seven points in the second set, and led 10-1 in the third. Marissa Sterner ended the game with two kills.
The Farmers (11-2), received 15 kills from Danna-Lynn Hooper-Juario, nine each from Kailana Ritte-Camara and Kalei Adolpho. Adolpho also put up four blocks, and Kawena Puhi had 35 assists.
“On behalf of the Molokai High School Girls Volleyball Program I would like to thank all the people of Molokai for their continued support of our program. We are very proud to represent the island of Molokai and the MIL in the state volleyball tournament on Nov. 5 through the 8,” Helm said.
