Boys results top 100 were Hoku Kahookaulana, Govar Strayhorn, Giri Strayhorn, Rio Scotti, Reed Hayashikawa, and Maiaku Kahookaulana.
Girls varsity volleyball defeated Parker in straight sets 25-2, 25-10, and 25-10.
8 Man Football. Hilo JV 50 Pahoa 6 at Wong Stadium. Our boys did very well considering the amount of practice time they had. They displayed excellent character and good sportsmanship from start to finish. The game was well played and all players were very excited after the game. It was a positive experience for our student/athletes and coaching staff. They all should be commended on a job well done. Thank you for all the support and making Dagger football's return a success. Next football game is this Saturday, 2:00pm at Kohala. This will be our first league game that will count in 8 man football standings.
Tonight, Girls volleyball at Waiakea 6:00 pm with both JV and Varsity to follow.
