Long time Hawaii Preparatory cross country and track & field coach Stan Shutes lost his battle with cancer and passed Friday night, according to Ka Makani Athletic Director Stephen Perry.

Shutes was in Stage IV melanoma and under HOSPICE care at his home in Waimea when he died.

While at HPA Shutes cross country and track teams won 36 Big Island Interscholastic Federation titles and two state titles.

Six times his teams were the state runner up and in 1983 his boys cross country team won the state championship and in 1995 his girls track team won the state crown.  The ’83 state title was HPA’s first ever state championship in any sport.

Shutes was 70 years old and was married to Sharon for 46 years. The couple has two children, Andrew and Christina, and five grandchildren.
