Galdeira movesgame outdoors
It’s not enough sometimes for Lia Galdeira to be the state’s best girls basketball player.
Recently, she made her debut in track and field. To no surprise, the Konawaena junior dominated. She helped the small school win the team title in a Big Island Interscholastic Federation meet, winning the 100-meter dash and long jump. She also took second in the 100 hurdles and was tied for third in the high jump.
