Water polo season is in full swing for the Kamehameha boys. The Varsity II team had their first game on August 30th versus the boys of ʻIolani, and the Varsity I boys had their first match against the Raiders on September 2nd. The games resulted in a win for Varsity II and a loss for Varsity I. Since their first games, Varisty II has played against Le Jardin Acadamy and Punahou, both games resulting in tough losses. It was during their second game against Le Jardin that senior Kai Bunell scored his first goal of his water polo career. The game ended with the score six to nine in Le Jardin’s favor, but coach Anthony Cabrera is optimistic about the future of his team. “We played the two top teams in our division, who are really tough already, and we’re a, you know, pretty inexperienced and young team, so we’re just going to keep getting better throughout the season.” says Cabrera. The Varsity I team, coached by Randy Bart and Curt Ai, has faced off against ʻIolani in their sole game thus far, ending with the score four-five in ʻIolani’s favor. The Varsity I team consists of mainly underclassmen, with only three out of the 16 players being seniors. Bart looks forward to the future of the team and says they are constantly looking to improve – their sights are set on playing in the championship matches that will be played at the end of their season.
