Kamehameha boys three-peat as track state champ; HPA girls top Kaiser

For the third consecutive year, the Kamehameha boys track and field team is the best in the state of Hawaii.

The Warriors won the 2016 HHSAA championship with 78.33 points, topping Punahou's 71.67 point output and Baldwin's 66 points.

Kamehameha swept the throwing events behind Alema Kapoi's 54 foot, 1 inch shotput toss and Wesley Faagau's 169 foot, 8 inch discus throw. Kaeo Kruse won the 1,500 meter run in 4:01:53 and the 3,000 meter contest in 9:05.85.

The ladies of Hawaii Prep Academy on the Big Island scored 57 team points to take home the title, just two more than Kaiser High School, the second place finisher.

Baldwin's Anthony Kahoohanohano-Davis set new meet records in the long jump (24 feet, 10 inches) and triple jump (49 feet, 10.75 inches). He cleared 6'8" in the high jump, winning the state title in that discipline as well, before failing on three attempts to set a new meet state record at 6'10".

"It was just kind of like, 'Woah, I really jumped that? Wow,'" said Kahoohanohano-Davis. "I didnt even know I could do that. It means a lot. I'm just really, really happy that I got these," he added, holding up his state medals.
