Girls Volleyball Season Opener at The Barn
The Molokai High School Girls’ Varsity volleyball team dropped their first two games of the season last weekend when they lost to the Hana Dragons on Friday night 3-0 (27-25,25-21,25-15) and on Saturday afternoon 3-0 (25-14,25-15,25-16).
“We have a young team this year but they played very well for their first games of the season,” said Head Coach Mahea Rawlins.
The Lady Farmers only have two seniors on the team this year. Kysha Kawano is a four-year letterman and Rawlins said, “she is doing well and she is very coachable and she leads by example and is a good team leader.” Senior Cendall Manley is a three-year letterman and Rawlins commented that “she is a positive leader, both on and off the court.”
There is a special bond between the Hana teams and the Molokai community, especially when it comes to volleyball, and Rawlins said that whenever they travel to Hana, “they always take care of us over there and when Hana comes to Molokai we show them a lot of hospitality also.”
“They are all family off the court but when it’s game time it’s time to take care of business and compete,” added Rawlins.
The Lady Farmers will have a bye this next weekend and then will host the Saint Anthony Trojans on Friday, Sept. 11 and Saturday, Sept. 12 at The Barn in Ho`olehua.
