Lahainaluna defeated the Kamehameha Schools Maui Warriors during the third set of the junior varsity boys volleyball game at Kaʻulaheanuiokamoku Gymnasium, Tuesday, April 17.

The Lunas started the game strong with a leading score of 25-22. The Maui Warriors retaliated and won the second set 25-17. The third set of the game heated up, and the Warriors left the court with a score of 23 to the Lunas’ 25 and the second loss of their season.

Throughout the season, the Warriors’ biggest opponents were “definitely Lahaina. They have a lot of good players,” Coach Taylor Awai said.

With the season coming to an end, the Warriors look back on their struggles and ahead to improvements they can make for next year.

“We butted heads a lot because there is a lot of strong personalities on the team, but overall we ended up just coming together as a team,” libero Jonah Saribay said.

The team faced difficulties like injuries this season. Sophomores Bronson Espania and Gabriel Arcas both were injured towards the end of the season. Even with the difficulties, the team ended up with seven season wins out of nine games played.

“I’m very proud of them. They all showed a lot of skill this season. We had a lot of adversity, but all the boys knew how to fight through it. I’m very proud of them, I just want to accentuate that,” Coach Awai said.

The team gathers at the end of the first set when Lahaina takes the lead.
