By Rick Schonely
The Molokai Lady Farmers Girls Softball team played in the DII Softball State Championships at Patsy Mink Field on Maui two weeks. After falling in the first game against Kalani 5-2, the Farmers rebounded to defeat Konawaena 11-1 in five innings and advanced to the consolation championship game against the Kauai Red Raiders. Molokai came up short in the consolation championship game losing to The Red Raiders 14-4 and placing 8th in the state in DII Girls softball.
Head Coach Kawehi Horner was proud of his team’s season.
“It was as an awesome season with lots of growth for the players and the coaches!” he said. “We are happy to have been able to make many new friends, and reach this far in states.”
Horner was thankful for all the help this season. “We coaches have learned a lot from the players as well and look forward to the upcoming years. Special thanks to all the coaches: Kenny Adachi, Jasmine Kan Hai, Joe Yamamoto, Lloyd Yonemura. John Borden. Joey Duvauchelle and Walter Rawlins Sr. A lot could not have been accomplished if it wasn’t for them. There are so many people to thank in the community; thank you all! It’s been a great ride.”
