HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Moanalua High School is back on top of the OIA.

Na Menehune took down Kailua High in overtime, 56-49, en route to the school’s sixth OIA title Wednesday night.

“It feels good being a champion,” said McRaven after the win. “We still got more to do. We still got the states. We’re gonna try to go as far as we can there.”
