Big blue steps up for preps

A $25,000 check from the State of Hawaii Organization of Police Officers has helped boost donations for high school athletics.

The HHSAA's Save Our Sports account is now at $850,000, executive director Keith Amemiya said.

“;It was very generous of them. We appreciate the support of SHOPO, especially since many of the police officers across the state played sports. Some of them are involved in high school sports today as coaches,”; Amemiya said.

 

Red Raiders reach the top

As far as Reggie Torres is concerned, the Kahuku football team is staying focused.

The Red Raiders (5-0) moved up to No. 1 in the Star-Bulletin Football Top 10 yesterday, and are also No. 10 in the National Prep Football Poll's West Coast rankings.

Injuries have hit the Red Raiders, with the loss of receiver Lopaka Morris and running back Galeai Malufau. Coach Reggie Torres wants his team to take it one step at a time.

“;We're just focusing on Kaimuki coming up (this weekend),”; he said.
