Bulldogs’ Lee turns
Under Lee, the Bulldogs were a perennial power in the Oahu Interscholastic Association.
Grant has been an assistant at several schools since playing under Tony Sellitto at Maryknoll and Hawaii Pacific University.
Grant, who coached at Kalani during the 1990s, kept the staff intact, including longtime assistant Richard Miyasaka.
"I feel good about the transition," said Lee, who has two young children. "It's time for me to spend a lot more time with my kids."
Coach Michele Nagamine's Kamehameha girls won the Leilehua-Castle tourney, edging Punahou in the title game, 1-0 on penalty kicks.
Mililani placed third with a 3-0 win over Waiakea.
Kamehameha and Punahou, two of the Interscholastic League of Honolulu's title contenders, will also play in two more preseason tournaments, according to volunteer assistant coach Scott Keopuhiwa.
Sizewise, the two early tournaments pale compared to this week's Moanalua tournament. Fifty-one teams -- varsity and JV, boys and girls -- will take the fields at the Waipio Soccer Complex.
The OIA West regular season begins Dec. 10. The OIA East begins Dec. 11.
