Waipahu High won its first game last week vs Pearl City High. Supported by the school cheerleading squad, the Marauders showcased their skills and pulled away from the Chargers late in the fourth quarter to win the game that was close for the first three quarters. After the game, players and coaches were given leis by the baseball team to cap off their win.
Friday Night Prime Time Basketball is in its fourth year and is coordinated by Dr. Nathan Murata, Dean of the College of Education at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Eight teams are participating this year and are made up of students with special needs and their mentors.
The overall goal is to give students a chance to don a school uniform and represent their school in an interscholastic competition. With the support of various businesses and volunteers, the games provide the chance for these students to play against other schools. Come out and cheer on all of the athletes. See you there!
