Jenkins wins 2 for Kapolei; Punahou again prevails

This story has been corrected.

WAILUKU » If life's fair, Devin Jenkins of Kapolei will have a calm, placid venue next year at which to defend his state championships and blast for some records in the 100- and 200-meter dashes.

As for the Punahou boys team, it doesn't seem to matter where the Buffanblu run, jump and throw — more often than not, they will plug along in machine-like fashion. While individual athletes from other schools take the spotlight, Punahou builds up points and wins the meet.

Such it was yesterday at War Memorial Stadium, with Punahou taking first in only one event — the last one of the meet, the 4x400 relay — but scoring enough points to dominate nearly from start to finish.

Punahou won its fourth state championship in five years with 76 points. Kamehameha was second with 41 points and Saint Louis third with 37.

It is the 32nd state title for the Buffanblu boys. The last four have been head-coached by the Pavich family, two by father Mike and the last two by son Micah.

"They're both great coaches," said senior Mike Zane, who was second in the 100, and third in the 200 and ran a leg in the 4x400. "Being coached by Mike Pavich was like having a second dad, and the younger 'Pav' is like a big brother. They both gave us great leadership and emphasize team, and it showed again tonight. It's a team effort. No one gets left behind."

Three individuals — Pierce Murphy, Shane Brostek and Jenkins — each won more events yesterday than Punahou, with two apiece.

And the Buffanblu won despite what could've been a costly mistake. Punahou didn't score in the 4x100 relay because of a botched handoff.

"Everybody picked it up after that," Micah Pavich said. "I wish I could say I was a confident coach after that, but I was a little nervous."

» Jenkins, a junior, ran two of the fastest times ever seen in Hawaii high school track, but they won't count as records. His 10.46 in the 100 and 21.09 in the 200 were good enough to dominate the rest of the field, but the old records will stand because these were wind-aided. Though slightly disappointed by that, Jenkins said he's just happy to even be competing and performing so well this season.

"I thought maybe next year, but not this year," said Jenkins, who tore both hamstrings last year. "After the first one at last year's Western Division championships, the doctor told me it might be at least a year. But it healed quickly and I was back in time for states. Then I tore the right one in last year's state meet 4-by-100 trials.

"This was great today, but I'm not going to say it's a highlight because I've still got next year."

He did set a meet record in Friday's trials, running a non-wind-aided 21.45 in a 200 heat.

» Murphy, a senior from Island School on Kauai, cemented his legacy as one of the finest high school distance runners in state history. He ran 4:01.92 to break his own record in the 1,500 meters he set last year (4:02.06). Then he came back about an hour later to set the standard in the 3,000 by running 8:52.44. The old record was 8:52.90 set by Leilehua's Bryce Jenkins in 2009.

"I'm speechless," Murphy said after the 3,000. "I didn't think it could be done with this wind. The backstretch was tough, but I just leaned in and took quicker strides."

Murphy is headed to Colorado in the fall to run cross country and track.

» Brostek, a Hawaii Prep junior, won the discus and the shot put; it's the same double his father and coach, Bern, accomplished in 1984 as a junior at 'Iolani. Brostek flung the discus 173 feet, 4 inches, and put the shot 55-11.5.

He won the shot after an intense battle with Koa Kaai of Kamehameha, whose second attempt of the finals bested Brostek's first.

"It was good to have competition like that," said Brostek, who noted that Kaai was second at states last year while Brostek was third.

Bern Brostek, a former NFL player, said he's proud of his son because, "He threw it farther than I did."
