By Sage Yamashita, Intern Reporter
The Farmers are starting the 2022-2023 season of winter sports, with some teams having already started competition, while others are gearing up for their first games. Boys and girls basketball, wrestling, canoe paddling, soccer, swimming and the basketball cheerleaders are all looking forward to an active season.
Boys basketball has already had an eventful pre-season. The past weeks they have traveled to the outer islands to gather some experience and get ready for the MIL season. Boys Basketball headed to Maui for a tournament against Maui High, Seabury and Kapaa. Then they traveled to Oahu to play against Kahuku and Castle. This coming weekend, the boys will be traveling to Hana to start their MIL DII season.
Girls Basketball started their MIL DII season as they traveled to Hana the past weekend. The games ended in victory with a score of Molokai 42, Hana 5 in the first game and Molokai 52, Hana 14 in the rematch. This starts the Lady Farmers season with 2-0. This weekend they will again be traveling to Maui to play against Waldorf.
Molokai Wrestling held their Green and White scrimmage Dec. 2. This brought the community out to see their skills and get them prepared for the upcoming season.
Paddling, soccer, swimming and the basketball cheerleaders continue practicing for their seasons. This is the girls soccer team’s first official year in the MIL DII, with games against Seabury happening at home Dec. 9 and 10.
