HPA Girls cross-country team wins Kaiser Invite

Congratulations to the Hawaii Prep girls cross country team for winning the Kaiser Invitational this past weekend on Oahu.  Michael Franklin’s harriers now set up a showdown against Hilo when the Ka Makani host an all-schools BIIF meet at their Waimea campus on Saturday.  

This photo was taken during the 2009 season by the Big Dog. I’d be happy to post a current photo should someone from HPA send one to me
