Blue-and-White game draws big crowd to Hanapepe Stadium

HANAPEPE—About a thousand Waimea High School Menehune fans took advantage of a

balmy pre-summer’s evening to enjoy a plate of beef stew and watch their

Menehune football players end Spring Training with the annual Blue-and-White

game at Hanapepe Stadium.

But, the plate was not limited to beef stew and

football alone as members of the Waimea High School band was out in force

providing the essential musical interludes as well as accompanying the Jr.

R.O.T.C. color guard who added the formal element with the pre-game

presentation of colors midfield.

The cheer squad was alson on hand to add

the big-game flavor to the event that is a fundraiser for the football

program’s annual Summer Camp.

Menehune athletes who shed their football

gear about a half a year ago, had a chance to get reacquainted with the pads,

and newcomers to the Menehune varsity program had a chance to become acquainted

with new equipment as coaches broke up the team into the traditional Blue and

White teams for a scrimmage that was complete with KIF officials on the


New members of the “chain gang,” Jessica and Laura Rita had a chance

to try their skills on the line.

And, when the last sip of soda was downed,

the Blue team emerged victorious 20-14 over the White.
