Quarterback Club honors
Rolovich, Cuadra

Hawaii quarterback Nick Rolovich and Maryknoll High School cross country standout Christal Cuadra are the outstanding male and female athletes for November.

The selections were made by the Hawaii Sports Person of the Month Committee.

Rolovich guided the Warriors to three wins and threw for over 500 yards twice.

Cuadra won the state girls cross country championship convincingly, capping an undefeated year.

The two honorees will be recognized at Monday's meeting of the Honolulu Quarterback Club.
