Tennis Sends Two

Boys’ doubles fall short of state finals.

Molokai High School’s Mason Horner and Kanahele Montizor made it to the tennis state championships last week in Kailua-Kona, representing Molokai with their double prowess. They came away just one game shy of entering the finals.

Seniors Horner and Montizor defeated a team from Baldwin High School, 6-4, 6-3, but were later eliminated by Kilani High School of Honolulu – who rank seventh in state – 6-3, 6-0.

“It was good playing schools out of the normal Maui County schools,” Horner said.

Coach Stacey Horner said that amid the intense pressure of competing in the state championships, the boys performed well and should feel proud to make it beyond the Maui Interscholastic League finals.

“They had a real good shot,” Stacey Horner added. “They took the lead [in the second game] but fell short in the end.”

Horner said this year was the last season for all the boys on the team, being they are all seniors, and will begin the recruiting process for next year.
