Q: What is your favorite subject in school?

A: Principles of Biomedical Science

A: My parents are the base of my successes.

Q: Do you have a pre- or post-game tradition? What is it?

From the Sideline

“Freshman Kaiea Higa had a great offensive performance last week where she went six for nine including two singles, two doubles, one triple, one home run and eight RBIs in the course of three games.”
