Waiakea Girls Win BIIF Team Title

Coach Tallett

The Waiakea girl’s tennis squad clinched the Big Island Interscholastic Federation team title on their home court this past Saturday by beating a spunky Kamehameha squad 4-1.

   Prior to the match first year Waiakea Coach Adelbert Tallett, Jr. spoke of the importance of playing Kamehameha.

   “This is a really big match for us as it will determine the team title,” he said. “Today is also going to be a win, win situation for me as I am a current and former Warrior.”

   Tallett, a 1979 graduate of Kamehameha, Oahu, had looked forward to playing his former Alma Mater all season long.

   “This is the highlight of my entire season,” Tallett said.  “I was born and raised on the Big Island and attended St. Joseph before being admitted to Kamehameha where I played three years on their varsity tennis team.”

   Tallett and the public school Warriors played a straight up match, leaving their number one singles player, Ceara Sumida, to face Kamehameha’s Rebekah Friel.

Ceara Sumida

“I felt really good today,” Sumida said of her 6-0, 6-1 victory.  “I got most of my first serves in and my transition to the net worked fairly well.”

   Sumida, ranked number two in the BIIF behind Kealakehe’s Sayo Tsukamoto, wasted little time dispatching Friel after rain delayed the match for nearly two hours.

   “I never played her (Friel) before and I didn’t know what to expect, but I went in thinking positive and it all worked out well,” Sumida said.

   In number 2 singles Waiakea played Candice Roddie against Kamehameha’s Sadie Arakaki with Roddie winning in straight sets 6-2, 6-0.

   “I knew the strength of Kamehameha rested with their doubles teams, but I wanted to keep my singles players in position to get the highest seed possible when it comes to the BIIF championships,” Tallett, Jr. said.

  The Kamehameha girls came into the match with only one loss, a 4-1 defeat to Kealakehe earlier in the season.  A win for the private school Warriors would have put the BIIF girl’s team title into a three way tie, but Waiakea would have none of that as their team rose to the occasion.

   Kamehameha used their number 1 doubles team of Kahea Kanuha and Amanda Lerma to gain their lone victory in team play by beating Qianna Hironaka and Shala Kushi 6-1, 6-4.

   The public school Warriors came roaring back in number 2 and 3 doubles play with Kaede Kanazawa and Stephanie Matsuura beating Corin Kim and Jaci Macida 7-6, 6-3 and with the help of Leisha Ishikawa and Chelsea Sato getting past Shariyah Campbell and Tehani Sewell 6-0, 6-4.

   “I my very excited for our girls winning the BIIF team title,” Tallett, Jr. said.  “Our girls are a very good, disciplined team and I have to give a lot of credit to Kamehameha for teaching me how to play the game.”

   Tallett also had high praise for his assistant coach, Roy Hatanaka, and for the support of the team’s parents.

  “I think our team chemistry worked really well this year,” Sumida said.  “I’m really happy for the team as everything just fell into place.”

  Waiakea’s boys team, playing for the runner up position as Kealakehe remained undefeated, beat Kamehameha 5-0 with their ace singles players, Kaito Mizutani and Kallen Mizuguchi sweeping to easy victories.

   Mizuguchi was placed into the number 1 position and faced Matt Yamamoto winning in straight sets of 6-0, 6-1, while Mizutani was regulated to the #2 spot and beat Elijah Pung 6-0, 6-0.

   Both Mizuguchi and Mizutani are undefeated in BIIF play and neither boy has lost a set all season long.

   “Kallen is ranked #6 in the state for boys 18 and Kaito is ranked #2 for the boys 16,” Coach Bill Brilhante, Jr. said.

   In doubles play Waiakea pitted Isaiah Brilhante and Christopher Simmons against Kamehameha’s #1 doubles team in Keoni Wong and Shaun Kagawa with Simmons and Brilhante winning in a close match 6-2. 4-6, 6-2.

   Waiakea’s other doubles teams of Chad Hara and Caden Yamamoto, 7-5, 6-1, and Kris Shigehara and Johnathan Torigoe, 6-4, 6-2 made it a clean sweep for the Warriors.

   The BIIF will next host a Seeding Tournament at Holua on Saturday.  Schools are limited to two singles and two doubles entries and according to Coach Bill Brilhante the tourney will allow schools an opportunity to meet the two match minimum requirement for athletes to compete in the BIIF championships set for April 24.

Kealakehe’s Doubles Switch Pays Dividends in BIIF Tennis

Kealakehe's Jeff Gelman and CJ Daub - #1 BIIF doubles team

   Considered to be one of the biggest tennis matches in the Big Island Interscholastic Federation regular season Waiakea and Kealakehe, two undefeated teams, went head to head on Saturday.

   The ‘Riders traveled to Waiakea in a showdown to determine who would be the top dog in BIIF team tennis as the two teams waited from the sidelines for two hours while rain delayed play.

   Both matches were decided by each schools number 3 doubles teams with Waiakea winning the girls, 3-2, and Kealakehe taking the boys by the same score.

   “I think, for us, this is one of the most important games of the season,” Waiakea boys coach Bill Brilhante, Jr. said prior to the match.  “I decided to play a straight up line up and fell victim to a lineup switch by Kealakehe.”

    With Waiakea having two of the top individual players in the BIIF and Kealakehe returning the league’s best doubles champions in Chandler “CJ” Daub and Jeffrey Gelman the showdown rested with the lineup changes produced by ‘Rider coach Jerome Kanuha. 

  “I knew they had better singles players than us,” Kanuha said.  “I decided to take my top singles player and put him into the doubles lineup.”

   The strategy paid off for the crafty Kanuha as Waiakea swept the two singles matches and Kealakehe won the three doubles matches to walk away with the 3-2 team victory over the Warriors.

  The Waiakea boys showcased two of their best individual players in Kaito Mizutani and Kallen Mizuguchi.

Mizuguchi

“Kaito (Mizutani) is ranked #2 in the state for boys 16 and Kallen (Mizuguchi) is ranked at #5 in the state for boys 18,” Coach Brilhante said.

  Mizuguchi made easy work out of ‘Rider Chase Richmond winning in straight sets of 6-1.

   “The only thing working today was my serve,” Mizuguchi said after the match.  “I was thrown off a little when he (Richmond) played at a different pace.  I was expecting something harder and faster and he kept changing the speed and that threw me off.”

   Mizuguchi played a solid all around game with a lightning fast serve and six aces to go with a consistent ground game.

   “My backhand is the most improved part of my game from last year,” Mizuguchi said.  “I think I got everything going in my game, but I still need to work on the mental aspects.  I took a long break by spending two weeks in Japan and it feels like I’m slowly coming back.”

Mizutani

The Warriors number two seed, Kaito Mizutani, won in straight sets 6-1, 6-0 over Aaron Hudman and also displayed a good all around game.

   “He’s (Hudman) pretty much the best I’ve played this season,” Mizutani said.  “I still need to keep working on the basics, my forehand and backhand, and I need to be more patient and not go after every shot.”

   Meanwhile defending BIIF doubles champions, CJ Daub and Jeffrey Gelman, was showing why they have yet to lose a regular season match in league play as they won 6-4, 6-1 over Warriors Chad Hara and Isaiah Brilhante.

   “We’ve been playing together for five years and we get along well and have a good friendship,” Gelman said.

   The duo won the doubles championships last year as freshman and look to continue their domination.

   “We’ve known each other since preschool and we like playing together,” Daub said.

   Kealakehe’s #2 doubles team of Shoyo Tsukamoto and Spencer Travalino defeated Garry Murayama and Caden Yamamoto 6-0, 6-1 and teammates Dillon Castillo and Chris Lysiuk beat Waiakea’s Chris Simons and Kris Shigehara 6-2, 7-5.

   For the girls it was Kealakehe’s three time BIIF individual champion, Sayo Tsukamoto, beating a talented Ceara Sumida by identical scores of 6-1.

Green

‘Rider teammate Daisy Green, playing in the #2 singles spot, defeated Warrior Leisha Ishikawa in straight sets of 6-0.

   Playing in the shadow of Tsukamoto, Green has quietly gone undefeated in BIIF regular season play last year as a freshman and continues her streak into her sophomore year.

   “I make less mistakes that the people I play and I just wait for them to make the errors,” Green said.  “I use top spin on my serves and my ground stokes have worked well for me.  I just need to be more aggressive and not sit back on the ball.”

  With the two individual matches going to the Kealakehe the defending girl’s team champions had to just sit back and wait for one of their doubles teams to come through with a win.

  Waiakea bounced back when their doubles teams swept Kealakehe to win the overall team scoring 3-2.

   For Warriors #1 doubles team of Samantha Maesato and Chelsea Sato is was a marathon afternoon that went the full three sets.  The Warriors beat the talented duo of Crystal Makaiwi and Kristen Winther 6-3, 2-6 and 7-5.

   In the #2 doubles match it was Warriors Kaede Kanzawa and Stephanie Matsuura beating out Tiera Makaiwi and Tammi Nedlic, 6-2, 6-4 to make things interesting.

   Like in the boys play everything came down to the #3 doubles team of Warriors Qiana Hironaka and Shala Kushi who made a comeback against Lauren Fujino and Maura Montenero.

   After losing the first set 6-3 the Warrior duo rallied to win the second set 7-5 and closed the team victory with a final 6-3 score.
