Swimmers Compete on Maui
The Molokai High Boys and Girls Swim teams traveled to Kihei Aquatic Center last weekend for two swim meets and had some strong finishes. Head Coach Amanda Labriola was very pleased with her team’s performance.
“We had a fairly good weekend Royden Abafo placed fifth overall in the 200 free, really making a name for him in that event,” she said. “Alex Mawae tried some new events this weekend and really made me and his team proud with his performance in the 500 free. Kapili Naehu-Ramos came back a made her mark for a second year in the 100 fly and Maire Kalawe’s first meet this season and she is showing great growth individually and with the team.”
On Friday, the women’s 200 yard medley team came in fifth, as did Naehu-Ramos in the 100 yard butterfly and Jalen Kalama in the 100 yard breaststroke. On Saturday, the women’s 200 yard medley team again placed fifth, Abafo placed third in the 200 yard freestyle, the men’s 200 Yard Freestyle Relay team finished fifth and Kalawe placed second in the 100 yard backstroke.
Molokai hosted a home swim meet on Monday, Jan. 15th at Cooke Memorial Pool in Kaunakakai. The MIL Swimming Championships are on Maui Jan. 26-27.
