Keaau Freshmen Leaving Mark in BIIF Track

Randi Estrada - 400 meter dash

Randi Estrada - 400 meter runner

Jesse Huihui - 100 & 200 meter runner

Jesse Huihui - 100 & 200 meter runner

    Keaau freshmen, Randi Estrada and Jesse Huihui, took giant strides in Saturdays, Big Island Interscholastic Federation Junior Varsity Invitational meet held at Kamehameha’s Paiea Stadium.

   Estrada, who ranks as one of the top varsity runners in the 400 meter dash, easily won the event over fellow 9th and 10th graders in a time of 1:01.76.  “I’m hoping to get under 60 seconds by the end of the season,” she said.

   Estrada has the third fastest time in the BIIF and her time is ranked in the top 10 in state varsity competition.

   The young Cougar also won the JV high jump event, clearing a state consideration height of 4 feet 9 inches and helped her JV 4×100 relay team to a fourth place.

   “Running and jumping in middle school helped prepare me for high school track,” Estrada said.  “High school track is just like middle school except a lot more organized.”

   In the final event of the afternoon Estrada was back on the track again, this time helping her varsity 4×400 team relay to victory.

   “My favorite event is the 1600 relay because it’s a team effort and you just don’t run it for yourself,” Estrada said.

   The Keaau girl’s 1600 relay is ranked in the states top 10 and Estrada plays an important role in the team’s success.

   “It’s kind of hard because I don’t want to disappoint anyone when the other three girls are depending on me,” she said.

   Ninth and tenth graders at the JV Invitational were allowed to run in both junior varsity and varsity events during the meet as the BIIF provided a special waiver to accommodate the crossing over during the day’s competition.

   For the boys it was Cougar freshman Jesse Huihui running wild for Keaau.  Huihui won the JV 100 and 200 meter dashes and was first in the triple and high jumps, while placing second in the long jump scoring 48 JV points for the Keaau boys that went onto win the team title.

    Huihui’s success is not a big surprise when you consider that he was the Parks & Recreation track champion in eighth grade for the 100, 200, long jump and was part of the winning 4×100 relay team.

    “The 100 and 200 are my favorite events because its short,” Huihui said.  “I like running at the high school level because I try to keep up with the seniors on this team and it helps me to get faster,” he said.

   Huihui has been running track since the fifth grade and his success today ranks him in the top 20 for state varsity athletes in both the 100 and 200 meter dash.

   “I’d like to be running under 11 seconds for the 100 by next year, my sophomore year,” he said.  “I want to keep practicing hard and just have fun with doing it.”

    Huihui also ran in the varsity 4×100 relay team on Saturday where he ran the second leg and helped his team to a first place finish in that event.  The Cougar team also set a Paiea Stadium Record, clocking in at 43.89 seconds which ranks Keaau within the top 10 of the state’s fastest sprint relay teams.

   In the 800 meter run it was Parker’s Daniel Gregg beating out Honokaa’s talented Chris Mosch in a tight race.

   Gregg, who had never won an event prior to Saturday’s JV Invitational, went out quickly then tried to hold off an experienced Mosch in the closing meters of the race.

   Both Gregg and Mosch are sophomores and they lead a field of 15 participants during the two lap race.  Gregg won in 2:13.28 with Mosch clocking 2:13.42.

   “I’m doing way better this year as I don’t really have the butterflies that I experienced last year,” Gregg said.

   Parker, who carries 10 athletes on their track roster, went from a three day practice week last year to a five day practice week this year under a new coach, according to Gregg.

  “We switched to morning practices because most of us are involved in drama after school,” Gregg said.  “We just built a long jump pit and most mornings we run along the road, but sometimes we go to HPA and practice on their track.”

   Not to be over looked at the JV meet is Honokaa’s Tialana Greenwell who quietly won the 800, 1500 and 3000 meter runs in the grueling heat on Saturday.

   Greenwell, only a sophomore, has etched her name into numerous distance events and has led the BIIF varsity each week in both the 1500 and 3000.  Greenwell, the BIIF cross-country champion, is also highly ranked with the state’s best varsity distance girls.

   Hawaii Prep girls won the JV team scoring title and Coach Pat Lau was all smiles.  “We have a good bunch of young girls for next year,” he said.

   “I have a lot of praise for all of these girls as they are showing improvement each week.”

   When asked who his JV MVP might be Lau quickly pointed to sophomore Pamela Lynn.  “Pamela didn’t win any events today, but she had several second and third place finishes,” Lau said.

    “I really like how her (Lynn) attitude has improved along with her willingness to be coached and be part of this team.  She’s has shown the most improvement and I would give the MVP for today’s meet to her,” he said.

    Coming up this Friday is the BIIF track & field qualifiers at Keaau starting at 2 p.m. with field events and 3 p.m. for running events.

    Then, on Saturday, Keaau will play host to the BIIF track & field championships.  Both Friday’s and Saturday’s meet will have an admission charge to spectators.  Tickets for adults and students without school ID are $5; students with ID $3; senior citizens $2 and children in grades 1 – 8 $1.
