As fall sports wrap up the season, winter athletes are already gearing up for their time on the court and in the water.

Paddling teams are among the first to make a splash into the winter season, with conditioning practices starting the first week of October. The junior varsity and varsity teams are led by Head Coach Queenie Loo and Assistant Coaches Kuumea Gora and Jordan Nelson.

“I want the girls to build good character and love what they’re doing,” Loo said.

In addition to basic paddling technique, Loo hopes to teach the paddlers about the Hawaiian culture.

Some student athletes welcome adding some exercise into their daily routines.

“I’m looking forward to getting fit and in shape,” said junior Jaimee Manupuna, a newcomer to the Lancer paddling team. In addition, Manupuna said she looks forward to making new friends and making this season a successful one.

Students in grades nine to 12 can participate, with paddling experience ranging from beginner to expert. Those coming out for practice are expected to have adequate swimming experience and should expect to participate in running drills and weight training.

Practices will be held in the weight room and at Ala Moana Beach Park during October. Following that, practices will be held at the Ala Wai Canal. Races begin during the first week of December and continue into January.

Other sports to look forward to this season include: intermediate soccer, intermediate and JV basketball, wrestling and swimming for Pac-5, intermediate tennis, precision riflery, Catholic School League (CSL) track and field and CSL basketball.
