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.

Hana Hou Volleyball Club

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
