Rebeka Revelle has played varsity basketball for all four years of her high school career. On Senior NIght, Wednesday, Jan. 20, the Warriors narrowly beat King Kekaulike, 45-43.

After a close game, Kamehameha Maui’s girls basketball team walked away with a win against King Kekaulike Wednesday night at Kaʻulaheanuiokamoku Gymnasium. The Warriors also celebrated senior night for the team’s two seniors, Rebeka Revelle and Megan Miguel.

“Ever since I met them, they were the most two fantastic girls I’ve ever met,” Coach Victor Aguirre said. “When the opportunity came to coach here, they were a big reason why [I came].”

Both seniors have played basketball for all four years or high school; Revelle playing on the varsity team all four years, and Miguel beginning on the junior varsity team in her freshman year then continuing with varsity for the next three.

The two seniors celebrated their senior night with a hard-earned win.

“My senior night was fun. I think the reason it was fun [was] because it was such an intense game,” Revelle said.

Although King Kekaulike scored the first points of the game, the Warriors came out on top in the first quarter with a score of 11-6. The Warriors managed their lead, slipping by with a one point lead halfway through the second quarter and remaining victorious at the end of the half with a score of 24-20.

King Kekaulike; however, stole the Warriors lead in the third quarter by managing to turn 5 of their 6 steals into points and overturn the score 30-31 Na Aliʻi for that quarter.

The real battle came down in the fourth quarter. The Warriors held a steady but close lead until halfway through the fourth quarter, when the teams tied at 38-38. The score went back and forth until the last second when the Warriors came out victorious with a final score of 45-43.

“It went our way in the end because we won, but it was harder than it needed to be,” Coach Aguirre said.

Sophomore Kimani Fernandez-Roy was the leading scorer of the night with 24 points.

Kamehameha Maui picked up another win agains the Maui High Sabers, 58-55, last night, bringing them to 9-2 for the regular season with losses only against Lahainaluna, their final opponents.

Cheer them on this Wednesday, Jan. 27, as they take on their toughest opponents at 6 p.m. at Lahainaluna.
