High School Beat

Monarchs have
3 new coaches

Damien has new head coaches in soccer, volleyball and track and field.

John Barry, the son of legendary coach Bob Barry, is the new soccer mentor.

John Barry, who was an assistant for his dad at Iolani, teaches science at the school and he also coaches a club team in Mililani.

Bob Barry coached five Raiders boys teams to state titles -- in 1974, '75, '79, '87 and '88.

John Barry replaces Ernie Eberhart.

Mike Norman, a physical science, physical education and art teacher at the school, takes over the Monarchs' volleyball reigns from Wayland Aruda.

Norman is a former Iolani coach. He also coached the Loyola Marymount men's team.

Aruda was let go by the Damien administration prior to the ILH season for breaking school rules, according to athletic director Herb Lloyd.

Former University of Hawaii defensive back Eddie Klaneski, who plays for the Hawaiian Islanders of arenafootball2, replaces Dale Hackbarth as Damien's new track and field coach.

Klaneski is also a football assistant for the Monarchs.

Sticking it: Saint Louis receiver Shaun Kauleinamoku used what he calls "the stick move" to get open for the winning touchdown pass reception in the 21-20 victory over Interscholastic League of Honolulu football rival Kamehameha.

"It was just a quick move in and then I went out and all Stanley (Nihipali) had to do was get it to me," Kauleinamoku said.

Football race on Valley Isle: The Maui Interscholastic League football standings got a bit more interesting last weekend.

Lahainaluna (3-0-1) and Baldwin (3-0-1) finished in a tie for the first-round title, so the overall league championship will be the winner of the second round.

That means the other two MIL Division I teams are still in the hunt -- King Kekaulike (2-2) and Maui (1-3).

Knights name game: The true nickname for Castle sports teams is "Knights."

Over the last few years, the football team has been informally referred to by coaches, players, fans and parents as "Black Knights."

But Castle athletic director Richard Haru said the school isn't adopting a new official nickname.

Haru, however, added that the football team will continue to refer to itself as the Black Knights as a "team unity concept."

Kraft helping out: The annual Kraft Shop and Score program runs through Nov. 2.

When supporters of high school sports purchase Kraft, Nabisco, Pepsi, Meadow Gold and Kimberly-Clark products at Times Super Markets, participating schools can earn their share of $100,000 worth of uniforms and equipment.

The program will also award an additional $25,000 in scholarships to be administered by the Hawaii High School Athletic Association.

For rules or more information, look for the in-store Times display or call 528-0221.

Hurricanes fund-raiser: The defending Division I state champion Kapolei softball team is raising funds for the upcoming season.

Hurricanes fans can buy health and beauty products through Arbonne International through Oct. 31, with 25 percent of items purchased going to the team.

For more information or to place an order, call 864-3346.
