What do our boys volleyball team, The Lady Saints softball team, and Taylor Lau have in common? They are all currently competing for a state title.
Taylor Lau nearly aced her first two opponents, dropping only one game, in her first two matches of the girls state tennis tournament. The boys volleyball team spiked OIA-D2 Champion Farrington in straight sets last night. The Lady Saints softball team has run-ruled their first two opponents in states, including an 11-1 win over #4 seed Molokai last night at McKinley.
The road gets more tough starting today as our Lady Saints softball team take on #1 seed Kamehameha Hawaii in the semifinals at Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium at 2:15 p.m.
The Saints boys volleyball team holds serve next against Kapaa in the state semifinals today at 5 p.m. at Hawaii Baptist. The victor gets a chance to dethrone undefeated Hawaii Baptist Academy, which our Saints took to five sets a couple weeks ago.
On Maui, Saint Francis Senior Taylor Lau won her first match today against #7 seed Kaitlyn Ralar from Kamehameha Schools Maui 6-2, 6-2.
In the semifinals, taking place now, Taylor next faces # 4 seed Tayvia Yamagata of Konawaena. The winner advances to the state championship tomorrow morning at 8:30 a.m. If Taylor can advance to the final, she will have the opportunity to finish her career with three state titles and one runner-up finish.
It is a big day, and hopefully, big weekend for our Saints in States. Get out and support our Saints. Show your Saint pride. Go Saints!
