The 36th Annual Las Vegas Classic

News Editor- Las Vegas, Nevada
The 36th Annual Las Vegas Classic, a time honored tradition for Hawaii teams to travel to Las Vegas during the President's Day Weekend Holiday.  Last event was year 2020 prior to the outbreak of COVID 19 and the pandemic that followed . 2021 was a year filled with cancellations and delay and finally 2022 brought back the tournament with some slight changes. Formally a USAV event it has now converted to a JVA Tournament. This change meant procedural changes in background checks with two systems not communicating with each other due to contractual differences between opposing organizations. None the less, through determination and hard work from the teams , the club was able to field the largest representation from the Aloha Region of six teams in different divisions. The teams were challenged with different levels of competition and everyone benefiting from the experience of playing a variety of teams.

Junior Bows outduel Bulldogs to win first girls volleyball crown since 1990

By Scoring Live Staff

The Jr. Bows took the long road to its first state girls volleyball title since 1990.

University Lab outdueled Le Jardin in a five set thriller, 28-26, 25-19, 19-24, 22-25, 15-9, in the title game of the HHSAA Division II girls volleyball championship.

"It means a lot for our school actually, we pulled it off for our school and this is for them," said Milan Ah Yat, who was named that tournament's Most Outstanding Player after pouring in 32 kills in the victory.

Makena Tong, who had a lofty 56 assists in the victory and set Ah Yat an equally lofty 75 times during the match, praised the work ethic and perseverance of her go-to hitter.

"She came back from an injury earlier in the season and she pushed really hard, she wanted to work hard for this," said Tong of Ah Yat. "I trusted her through the whole season that she was going to get me that kill every ball I set her, and she did was did."

In the course of just over 24 hours, the top seeded Jr. Bows played 10 sets of volleyball, rallying back from a 2 set to none deficit against defending champion Damien before going the distance with the Bulldogs in their fifth match of the year. The two teams racked up 20 total sets against each other over the course of the season.

"I think we adjusted every time we played them and this last one we put our all into it and pushed through," said Ah Yat of Le Jardin.

The first two sets went the Jr. Bows' way, though the first went down to the wire with 13 ties and six lead changes in that one alone. Ah Yat dominated the match early, notching 11 kills in the opening set and another six in the second.

Despite having their backs against the wall, Le Jardin seemed to play more freely and confidently in set three and especially in set four, where the Bulldogs muscled their way out of a 21-17 hole, using an 8-1 scoring run to force a winner-take-all final set.

The Bulldogs weren't able to capitalize on any momentum gained by evening the match at two sets a piece in the deciding fifth, and the Jr. Bows jumped out to a 4-1 advantage on Ah Yat's 31st kill. Le Jardin chipped away to get within a single point at 10-9 on a Genezia Hawkins' dump shot, but that would be last points put on the scoreboard for Le Jardin.

"Have fun. That's what it was," said Tong of her teammates mindset in the final set. "We play the best when we have fun and our goal was five points at a time and get them one by one."

University Lab scored the final five points of the contest, none via an attack, and the celebration began on the floor, from the bench and also in the stands.

"Everyone worked hard. The crowd brought us up, the parents, everybody that contributed this season, this is all our win," remarked Tong.

Pii Carvalho lhad a game-high three aces, part of nine total by the Jr. Bows, that kept the Bulldogs off balance for much of the match in serve-receive.

"Getting them out of system that was the main goal and they are a great team, we knew they could pass so we needed to serve tough," said Tong.

Carvalho was one of three Jr. Bows with double digit kills, putting down 13. Sophomore Liliana Dutcher also came up big, contributing 11 kills, including two key attacks down the stretch in set five.

"For her it's getting that confidence out of her," said Tong of Dutcher. "She's unstoppable and she doesn't even know it herself."

Le Jardin was led by the combination of Reese Diersbock and Sydnee Walker, with 21 and 17 kills respectively. Setter Genezia Hawkins had nine kills and 39 assists in the loss.

This win marked the ninth girls volleyball title for University Laboratory, who won seven straight titles between 1984 and 1990, four under Raplee Fitzsimmons and three guided by Glennie Adams.

Manoa-News Editor

Congratulations to Class of 2021 Mid-Pacific Institute /Team Keenan 18’s Sarae Miguel on her commitment to play collegiate volleyball at the University of New Haven.  Sarae is a three-year member of Hana Hou and currently still in season under coaches Justin and Jason. Her high-school coach was ILH legend Tommy Lake. She is a multi-sport athlete who plays basketball and volleyball.

At UNH the scholar-athlete will major in forensic sciences in a school noted by former professor Henry Lee who worked on many famous high-profile cases.

For two club seasons in an era of Covid19 and global pandemic, Sarae joins four other players that enabled themselves to transition from high school to collegiate volleyball despite the extreme adversity each player faced without travel to mainland tournaments. Using digital platforms and an unwavering commitment to succeed (with help from her parents) this represents a tremendous accomplishment for the young student athlete. Wishing her the best of luck as she departs the one season state for the four season state of Connecticut.

Est May 2016 . Hana Hou Volleyball Club was formed by two parents whose previous club collapsed and needed to provide a opportunity to showcase their 17u old players in what would be the last year at summer travel prior to graduation.  In six weeks the club went from zero to being featured as the media story of the 2016 AAU Junior National Championships in Orlando Florida
