Advertiser Staff

Punahou senior midfielder Rachael Lau was named to the 2004 National Soccer Coaches Association of America/adidas Girls High School Scholar All-America Team.

Lau, who was the ILH Co-Offensive Player of the Year last season, was an Advertiser All-State first team selection. She helped lead the Buffanblu to their second straight state championship, including a 13-0 record.

Lau carries a 3.9 cumulative grade point average, and is looking to attend an Ivy League school next year, according to her father, Bert Lau.

Lau is the only player from Hawai'i — male or female, to be selected to the Scholar All-America team. Fellow Punahou senior Callum Trigg-Smith was selected to the NSCAA/adidas High School Boys All-America Team.
