Advertiser Staff

Honokaa High established itself as the team to beat in Big Island prep basketball this season after scoring two decisive wins while defending league champion Hilo was upset by Kealakehe.

Honokaa, the Big Island Interscholastic Federation’s second-place team last season, toppled Kohala, 56-48, and Waiakea, 72-53. Eddie Aldrige and Kaneala Aiona each scored 13 points against Kohala, and Austin Souza scored 10 against Waiakea.

The Waveriders of Kealakehe, with their first senior class, rallied in the second half to sink Hilo, 60-50. Ashley Labowski scored 23 for Kealakehe. Preston Jarneski led Hilo with 15 points.

In other games, St. Joseph downed Hawaii Preparatory Academy, 51-35, with a strong second half; Konawaena crushed Laupahoehoe, 80-36; Pahoa outlasted Kohala, 63-60, to go to 2-0; and Kau defeated Keaau, 52-46.
