The boys volleyball and baseball teams stayed on Molokai this past weekend but didn’t seem to gain an edge from the home field advantage over four games.
On Friday, the volleyball and baseball teams both lost. Seabury Hall pitcher Kalei Hendershot struck out nine Molokai batters over seven innings in his complete game shutout. The Farmers could only muster four hits in a 3-0 loss at Duke Maliu Field.
The volleyball team also lost 3-0 on Friday, in three straight set losses to King Kekaulike in The Barn. Top players for Molokai were Brahunson Kaai with eight kills, Paka Adolpho with seven kills and Roycee Calairo six kills. The set scores were 25-18, 25-17 and 25-18.
The next day, the volleyball team lost again in straight sets to King K., 25-15, 25-21 and 25-19. Adolpho finished with eight kills and two blocks while Kaai had seven kills in the match.
The baseball team turned its game around on Saturday with a 9-3 win over Seabury. The victory ties Molokai with Seabury for first place in the Maui Interscholastic League Division II standings, both with 3-1 records.
Nohi Meyer drove in three runs for Molokai and scored twice, finishing 2-for-2 with a double. David Rapanot was 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs, and Brandon Willing-McCutcheon drove in two runs.
