McKinley looking for athletes from 1937-38

McKinley High athletic director Neal Takamori is looking for the whereabouts of athletes from the school's 1937-38 sports teams.

That year, the Tigers won Interscholastic League of Honolulu championships in football, basketball, track and field, swimming and baseball -- considered the island's five major sports a the time.

The school is planning on recognizing athletes from those teams at the Tigers' homecoming pep assembly on Sept. 22 and at the homecoming game against Farrington at Aloha Stadium on Sept. 23.

If anyone has information on the 1937-38 champions, call Takamori at 594-0418.

Heycke captures gold in triathlon

Honolulu's Dieter Heycke won the 70-74 age group gold medal at the International Triathlon Union Long Course Tri Worlds earlier this month in Fredericia, Denmark.

The course was a 4-kilometer swim, a 120K bike and a 30K run. The swim, however, was shortened to 3K due to cold weather.

With the victory, Heycke, 70, qualified for the USA team for the ITU World Cup in Honolulu and the Ironman in Kailua-Kona. Both races are in October.
