Brittney Carvalho reigns at Warriors’ homecoming

Kapa‘a may have been chasing a 35-0 halftime deficit last Friday, but that did not dampen the homecoming celebration.

Shea Alapai, the Warriors’ homecoming king, was No. 3 on the field and when the dust subsided, led the Kapa‘a defensive effort with eight tackles, a quarterback sack and a pass breakup.

Outside of the locker room, Everett Awong had the honor of escorting homecoming queen Brittney Carvalho, the daughter of Bernard and Regina Carvalho.

Each of the members of the homecoming court made their entrance under the saber arch provided by the Saber Unit of the Kapa‘a Junior ROTC program under the direction of Col. Jerald Knudsen, while Catherine Paleka joined members of the Kapa‘a High School marching band who rendered the background music.

Members of Carvalho’s court included Ms. Warrior Poerava Gantt escorted by Daniel Rodrick, Ms. Touchdown Cassie Mundon escorted by Puna Gallardo, Ms. Victory escorted by Travis Toguchi and Ms. Spirit Marie Joy Agacid escorted by Noah Imai.

Teeana Valpoon represented the senior class, escorted by Kaipo Kinney with Victoria Olsen representing the junior class. Olsen was escorted by Ama Volente-Gonsalves with the help of Travis Shigeta.

Julie Arii wore the banner of the sophomore class with Palani Mawae doing escort duty and Jodi Das was the freshman class representative escorted by Sean Shigematsu.

Hilary Fernandes and Alicia Higa served as the emcees of the program themed “Green and White, Victory Tonight.”

That theme featured the celebration of the school’s 30th anniversary of their first KIF football victory.
