Big Dog’s Top picks for BIIF cross country chamionships

This is a no brainer in BIIF cross country as HPA girls go for their fourth straight title and 34th team title in 38 years.

Also, look for four or five of Lady Ka Makani to stand upon the medal list to make all BIIF first team selections.

Hilo’s Carmen Garson-Shumway and Waiakea’s Kelsie Kobayashi could break up HPA runners from making a perfect score.

HPA girls were #2 in the state last year, and coach Michael Franklin says that this years team is even better than last years team, so look for Ka Makani to challenge Punahou and Seabury Hall for the HHSAA state title.

Boys team title will be between Waiakea and Honokaa as both schools have the depth and fire power.  Honokaa has the experience of being in the winners circle with four consecutive team titles under their belts, so lets see how hungry Waiakea might be.

Waiakea and Honokaa might get two runners from each school in the top 7, with St. Joseph’s Andrew Langtry and Makua Lani’s Brandt Mabuni joining in on the fun.  Kamehameha’s Shawn Correa Doll will challenge Jackson Halford for the league individual crown.

But as everyone knows, anything can happen on race day, and something special usually happens.  Good luck to all.

BIIF Cross Country Championships today at HPA

Chris Mosch will be going for his second BIIF individual title

I’m anxious to get out to Hawaii Prep this afternoon to watch the four races that will be featured to the conclusion of an exciting Big Island Interscholastic Federation cross country season.

Girls open starts at 2:30 pm followed by the boys open, girls varsity and concludes with the boys varsity.
Honokaa’s Chris Mosch will be defending his BIIF title, while teammate Tialana Greenwell will be going for her fourth individual title.
Honokaa boys will be vying for their fourth consecutive team title while the HPA girls will be looking to defend their proud tradition in long distance running.
Complete varsity results and partial open results will be posted on this site later this evening along with some photos.
Good luck and best wishes to all the competitors.
