Tennis Players Show Progress
The Molokai High tennis team only won one match at this year’s Maui Interscholastic League (MIL) tournament at the Wailea Tennis Club two weekends ago, but coach Catie Brind is proud of their improvements.
“They were all fresh, brand-new players to the sport,” she said. “I thought they progressed very well. The kids here are just so naturally athletic.”
Hope Will won against Kaliana Kaneyasu of Maui High, 6-2, 6-1, but no other single or doubles of the 12-member team won a match. Brind said it was a nice experience for all the players to see that level of tournament.
Many of last year’s champion players graduated, and the Farmers’ tennis team didn’t win against any school this year. Mason Horner and Kanahele Montizor represented Molokai at the state championship last year.
