Menehune Wahine Celebrate Title

Capping an amazing undefeated season – and assuring team members of a place in the annals of Kaua’i sports history – Waimea High School swept through the Division II softball state tournament just as they did through the KIF season.

The Menehune defeated Nanakuli, 12-4, in the final at Rainbow Wahine Stadium in Honolulu. The win was all the sweeter for players and coaches who came close two years ago, but finished second at states.

“This is really big for our girls,” Waimea head coach Teddy Perreira said after claiming the state title. “They worked hard all season for this.”

For the girls of Waimea and their fans, 2012 will always be a year to remember.
