Senior Kealakekua Makekau made the ILH Girls’ Soccer All-Star first team while teammates Ashley Cho, Lauren Arakawa, Noelle Yee, Kelli Keahiolalo and Taylor Pazcoguin were named as honorable mentions.
Makekau said, “I’ve never made first team before so this is an honor, but without my team I would never have gotten this opportunity.”
Arakawa agreed. “This season took a lot of dedication and hard work but my teammates made it an amazing experience.”
While the Academy Junior Varsity Air Riflery team won the ILH championships, junior Sara Tashima placed second in varsity.
Tashima said, “Although my goal was to win first place, winning second is good too. I learned what I need to work on to improve so that next year I will be better.”
