Coach Orlando Anaya is pretty stoked — the University of Hawai‘i men’s swim team finished second at the C-USA Invitational in Texas and son Keenan did well, topping the 200 Freestyle event in consolation.
Meanwhile, coach Buzzy Cox was busy working on Chinese New Year’s … he was trying to figure out how to get past his interview and on the plane to catch Jordan and the rest of the Raiders in action at the state Division II games.
Sam Henriques had her mom join her at the 21st Annual ACF Breakfast Sunday … Stu Burley didn’t have much time for chow since there was always a crowd at the Waimea Remotely Operated Vehicle tank that featured an underwater robotic vehicle created and operated by the students … only Ron Sakoda was missing so was I in the “right” place?
Beth Tokioka had some samples of Kaua‘i Made products for patrons to try, and over at the food place, chef Guy Higa was all over the place before getting back to the Marriott to start the fire for the special Chinese barbecue chicken. Kudos to all who worked hard to make this event work so well.
Higa wasn’t the only one who merged Chinese New Year into breakfast … Janet Kahalekomo had her whole ‘ohana (just like Eric Rita) enjoying the meal — complete with lai sih!
Hats off to Bill Countryman and his Marriott ‘ohana on a wonderful event — the visitors sure loved it! Was nice to chat with Patricia Yu and Kyle Chew, both Taiko Kaua‘i drummers.
OK, ’nuff said … it’s off to the final game of the girls 12 and Under league.
