This is Wong’s second All-American title.

The University of Arizona student told KHON2 that her preparation for the tournament involved repetition, a good support team and a lot of arrows.

“Through all of the family and support that I could feel through I guess the technology and all of our communications, I can definitely feel the aloha spirit all the way back home. Hear of just saying ‘you’ve got this. You can do this. Just stay calm and show them the Hawaii spirit.’
