Former Iolani soccer star
to lead girls' varsity team;
HHSAA rejects Sweet 16

By Dave Reardon


Sandy Shimogaki, a member of the 1992 Iolani girls' state championship soccer team, is the Raiders' new varsity coach.

Shimogaki, who coached the Iolani junior varsity the past two seasons, was an all-Interscholastic League of Honolulu midfielder.

"I want to prepare them to play at the next level if that's what their goal is," said Shimogaki, who has about 15 returning varsity players from last season's ILH runners-up. "And if it isn't, I still want the game to be fun so they can look back on it as a good experience."

After graduating from Iolani, Shimogaki started three years at UMass, where she was a teammate of U.S. National Team goalkeeper Briana Scurry. The Minutewomen made it to the NCAA semifinals when Scurry was a senior and Shimogaki a freshman.

Shimogaki, 24, is an engineer with a local firm.
