The public is encouraged to support all the Farmer athletic teams since the school’s athletic department is short about $62,000 in travel funding, according to MHS Athletic Director Hokulani Haliniak.

“The athletic department does not want to cut back on travel as we have 196 students signed up for athletics this school year 2013-14, with no JV programs,” said Haliniak. “We are hoping to add JV programs to help keep more student-athletes playing sports.”

To help make up some of the needed costs, admissions to football games will be $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and military, $4 for children 1-8, $4 for students from non-participating schools with ID’s and free for students from participating schools with ID’s. In the past three seasons that Molokai High School has fielded a football team there were no admission costs.

Admission costs for baseball, volleyball, softball and basketball will be $5 for adults, $4 for seniors/military, $3 for children 1-8 and students from non-participating schools and free for students from participating schools.
