Kahuku girls in Kang Volleyball

Advertiser Staff

The four-pool tournament of girls volleyball teams runs Aug. 13-16 at the upper and lower gyms at Iolani. Admission is $4 for adults and $2 for students.

The former Iolani Invitational was renamed to honor the Iolani girls' volleyball coach, who founded the tournament 21 years ago. Kang died June 30 at age 47. She had been suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's Disease.
