MHS Fall Sports Outlook
By Maria Angst, Community Reporter
The school year has begun and sports are back at Molokai High School, with football and volleyball already practicing at full speed this summer. This year will be filled with excitement, as fall sports will be offering sideline cheer, eight-man football, girls volleyball, boys and girls cross country, and boys and girls air riflery this season.
Kaimana Kahale, a coach from the football team, said he is looking forward to an exciting season even though they have graduated many seniors.
“Though we have lost 18 senior players, we are still thrilled about this team which has brought out new additional athletes,” he said.
Kahale has been eagerly awaiting Molokai High School’s annual Green and White scrimmage next Thursday with his team.
“We have some talented seniors who are excited to play for their final year and we are hoping this season proceeds as planned. However with the fires on Lahaina, we understand some teams will be impacted by this.”
The team will also have a non-league eleven-man game event with the Wailua football team coming mid-September. As the practices continue for football, volleyball and cheer are also underway, with cross country and air riflery beginning practice in the next weeks. Molokai High, and the community, are excited to support student athletes since this is just the second year of sports since coming out of the COVID pandemic.
