The Molokai boys’ volleyball team hosted Seabury Hall this past weekend, and after a 3-1 loss on Friday night (25-13, 19-25, 25-21 and 25-22) the Farmers played a thrilling five-set match Saturday, but again lost to Seabury 3-2 (23-25, 21-25, 25-17, 25-15 and 15-11). Molokai is now 3-6 on the season. Seabury is 4-4.

On Saturday the Farmers took the first two games, but Seabury fought back and took the next three sets in a row to win the match.

Friday night was also Senior Night for Tanielu Falealii, the team’s only senior.

Coach Hale Domingo praised Falealii for his spirit and hard work.

“He is awesome. This is his first year playing volleyball and he surprised a lot of us,” said Domingo. “We love the heart that he brings to practice, the heart that he brings on the road. He has the biggest heart and he plays hard all the time.”

“Anyone would have loved to have him play volleyball from his freshman year, but we have them this year and we enjoy every single minute with him,” Domingo added.

The boys will travel to Hana on April 17 and 18, followed by a week off before the 2015 Maui Interscholastic League Division-II Boys’ Volleyball Tournament on Lanai starting April 30.

“We are headed to Hana and looking forward to the challenge. We can see where we stand and then we will be blessed with a beautiful week off so we can get some hard work done, stay positive and get ready for the tournament,” said Domingo.
