To submit your story to us contact Kingsley Ah You- kahyou@digitalsports.com

VIDEO: Wrestling highlights BELOW!

OIA Wrestling Tournament to Start Friday Feb 22. – Feb. 23rd 

FOUR FOR FOUR

Kahuku Wrestler Seeking Fourth Title in
Fourth Different Weight Class

Kahuku, Hawai’i, February 20, 2008 – Danica Leilani Auna,
captain of the Kahuku girls wrestling team, is seeking to become the first OIA
female wrestler to win four individual titles in four different weight classes.  Already an OIA champion at 103lbs, 108lbs and
125lbs, she will be seeking her fourth title at 120lbs this Friday and Saturday
at Leilehua High School.

Her wrestling career began in
7th grade on the Kahuku Intermediate team.   She made the varsity squad as a freshman in
2005 and quickly made her mark winning the OIA East and OIA championships at
103lbs.  She went on to finish second in
the State championships losing in overtime, 4-2, to Carla Watase of Iolani.  In 2006, she won the OIA East and OIA
championships at 108lbs and finished second again in the state final losing,
4-3, to Megan Morisada of Iolani.  After
winning yet another OIA championship at 125lbs last year, she finally claimed a
state title by pinning Ariella Ing of Moanalua in the 2007 final.

Her team is seeking it’s
third OIA team championship in four years and hopes to be the first school to
win four state team titles later this month.   
Kahuku has been dominant this season winning the OIA dual championships
and OIA East championship by wide margins. 
They currently have three All-Americans that are nationally ranked.  Ciannah Hee is ranked second in the 120lb.,
Danica is ranked 3rd at 124lbs., and Amanda Soliai is ranked 3rd
at 155lbs.

Kahuku is planning to send a
team to compete in the 11th Annual United States Girls’ Wrestling
Association National Championships at Livonia
Churchill High
School
, Livonia,
Michigan
, March 29-30, 2008.

THE DIGITAL SPORTS HAWAII SOCCER TEAM

David Kawada – Content Editor
dkawada@digitalsports.com

Kamehameha Schools accomplished the “Double dip” by claiming the Boys and Girls Division I State Championships this year.   Mid Pacific and Kamehameha-Hawaii respectively brought the Division II Titles back to their campuses.

Being new to the sport, I learned some interesting notes about this 2007-08 season:

1.  Sacred Hearts Girls entered varsity competition for the first time and qualified for the State Tournament.
2.  Kapa’a Boys made it to the D-II State Championship Game for the first time in school history.
3.  Honoka’a Boys earned a top seed in the State Tournament for the first time in school history
4.  The clock does not stop.  No timeouts. 
5.  The Shootout is one of the most exciting and anxious moments in sports.

We want to thank all those that contributed to nominating players for this Top 25 Team, renamed the DIGITAL SPORTS HAWAII SOCCER TEAM.  Congratulations to all the players and teams that competed this year!

The Red Raider Battalion

Special to Digital Sports Hawaii by Felita Reed
Kahuku JROTC Public Affairs Officer

Interested in featuring your Schools JROTC program contact Kingsley Ah You- kahyou@digitalsports.com

Kahuku JROTC is
not like any other course in Kahuku High and Intermediate School.  It teaches subjects like U.S. History,
fitness, and even helps cadets to write good essays.  Along with those, JROTC teaches principles such
as leadership, teamwork, and how to be a more confident person.

            Because
Kahuku Junior ROTC is funded by the
Army, cadets are taught leadership through military discipline.  The Instructors of the Red Raider Battalion
are 1SG William Brandt and 1SG Don Glover. 
However, the program is entirely run by the high school cadets.  Leading the battalion is C/LTC Sharmaine
Palama with C/CSM Eliani Lawrence as the Battalion Command Sergeant Major.  In staff, there’s C/CPT Gabrielle DeCosta as
the Adjutant; C/PFC Wesley Hurwitz as the Security Officer; C/CPT Rani
Phanthavong as the Training and Operations Officer; C/CPT Kanoe Padeken as the
Supplies Officer; C/CPT Felita Reed as the Public Relations Officer; and C/CPT
Hubner as the Education Officer.  These
leaders work together to fulfill the Army JROTC motto: “To motivate young
people to be better citizens.”

            Students
are taught leadership through personal application and have a chance to excel.  They are promoted – based on performance -
where they may be in charge of 5 to 100 cadets, depending on what they’re
position is.  Squad Leader is the first
leadership position available to cadets with Battalion Commander as the highest
position. 

            Teamwork
plays a very important role in Kahuku JROTC. 
Without teamwork, the battalion would not move forward.   Teamwork can best be seen in the special
teams: Color Guard, Drill Team, Honor Guard, and the Ranger Team.  These teams practice after school, perform at
OIA games, along with competing against other JROTC programs from all over the
island. 

            Together,
the principles of leadership and teamwork help to boost the confident of a
cadet.   Students learn to express
themselves in front of their peers. 
There are also times where the cadets break off into groups and teach a
lesson in the class.  This helps the
cadets who come into the Kahuku JROTC program as shy, and quiet students, leave
the program as confident young adults. 

            The
Kahuku Red Raider Battalion is a great program for all students.  It helps many cadets to pursue their dreams.  It teaches them leadership and teamwork,
which will be used throughout life.  Most
of all, it teaches the self-confidence needed to succeed in life.
