PUKALANI – Senior Tyson Haupu had no trouble being “very proud of his team and how they played” after the volleyball boys walked off the court while smiling and high-fiving each other. The Warriors triumphed over Maui High School, 3-0, at Ka’ulaheanuiokamoku Gymnasium Tuesday.

The Warriors had defeated Maui High School, 3-0, the previous Friday, making this game their second win of the season. Last season, they had 11 wins and three losses, taking them to the state championships.

In the first set, they established a lead that led to their 25-21 victory. Although they were ahead, some passing errors set them back. According to coach Robert Brede, their passing prevented them from “[running] their options” and it “played a big role in some of the points that went against [them].”

“We did good tonight, but we started off to a rough start. But it was great to see us come back and play to our potential,” senior Rafael Adolpho said.

Throughout the game, the Warriors’ sophomore Iverson Dudoit made many blocks, and freshman Sheldon Dudoit-Caban also contributed to the wins with his passes. The second set went to Kamehameha, 25-15.

“For the most part, we’ve earned our points, and the good thing about it is we came out on top by overcoming all of the errors that we’ve had,” Coach Brede said. The third and final set ended with a score of 25-14.

Adolpho said the team hopes to go into their next game “in high intensity” when they play the Baldwin Bears Friday at Baldwin High School Gymnasium at 6 p.m.
