Gonsalves, Paleka reign over Kapaa homecoming

LIHUE — Kekai “Kiki” Gonsalves was escorted by Grant Mitchell Saturday during the Kapaa High School homecoming at the Vidinha Stadium.

The halftime activities wrapped up a week of celebration, where Jonathan Paleka reigned as the Kapaa High School Homecoming King alongside Gonsalves, the school’s homecoming queen.

“Our normally scheduled homecoming week falls during the fall break,” said John Kaneholani, a basketball coach for Kapaa High School. “We also had two key athletic games this week, so the school changed the celebration so students could participate in homecoming.”

In addition to Gonsalves and Paleka as the Warrior homecoming royalty, Brooke Spencer, escorted by Drew Lopez-Nishikuni, wore the “Miss Warrior” banner, Maile Tuttle, escorted by James Stevens, donned the crown of “Miss Touchdown,” Kaiemi Moniz, the Warriors’ libero on the volleyball team, was escorted by Riley Dabin as “Miss Victory,” and Shayna Rosa, escorted by Lathan Aiwohi, was announced as “Miss Spirit.”

Class representatives on the homecoming court included Kaylee “Lele” Silva, escorted by Kawika Christian, representing the Class of 2014, or seniors.

Junior class representative Eryka Keoho was escorted by D.J. Lacaden, sophomore class representative Brylyn Aiwohi was escorted by Justin Franklin, and freshmas class representative Micaela Costa had Kaison Carvalho as her escort.
