Waimea junior varsity volleyball players Lokahi Malama and Cailey Delanoza Vea get the ball past Kaua‘i setter Lilyn Corpuz in the second set of a Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation volleyball match that was swept by the Menehune, 25-13, 25-16 and 25-16 on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2023. Scores from the JV game played at Wilcox Gymnasium were not available at press deadline time. The games were JV only because the JV teams did not have the opportunity for court time during the game played Thursday night, Sept. 28, 2023, before Spectrum OC16 television cameras.

“Fashionistas (that’s another Edie Ignacio Neumiller term)” Edie and MJ Akuna, of the YWCA of Kaua‘i, were discussing pink (did you see the new Waimea girls volleyball pink for Maui shirts?) and purple representing Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Domestic Violence Prevention Awareness Month?
