This year’s group that won the 18U championship also won the 17U championship last year, which is the first time a team from Hawaii won the 17U and 18U titles in consecutive years.
Punahou senior and soon-to-be USC freshman Riley Haine was named the Most Outstanding Player.
The team was coached by Rick Tune, who has also led Punahou to nine consecutive HHSAA Division I championships, a streak that remains active. Tune’s son, Aidan, was an impact player on both the Punahou and Spike and Serve 18U championship teams. He is headed to Pepperdine University this fall.
