Kamehameha, which placed second to ‘Iolani in the regular season, pulled out a 27-25, 25-20, 12-25, 19-25, 15-12 victory over the Raiders tonight in the Division I final of the New City Nissan/HHSAA Girls Volleyball State Championships.

"We work on our end game, trying to always end strong — ending our practices strong, ending our season strong and it worked for us in set 5," Kamehameha coach Chris Blake said. "It was a great team win. As coaches, we were amazed that the players took it upon themselves — led by Brooke Ka’awa, one of our captains — in between the fourth and fifth set to talk about exactly what they felt they needed to do."

It was the Warriors’ 20th state championship since the tournament began in 1969. Blake has been a coach for eight of those and this one was the first since 2013.
