From the Honolulu Advertiser: Punahou spikes ‘Iolani in ILH

Even with a fresh lineup full of unfamiliar faces and a new head coach, the three-time defending state champion Buffanblu flexed their muscles once again last night with a 25-17, 25-21 sweep of ‘Iolani in a matchup of Interscholastic League of Honolulu unbeatens.

A vocal home crowd of about 800 at Hemmeter Fieldhouse watched Punahou, ranked No. 2 in The Advertiser’s statewide Top 10 poll of coaches and media, improve to 7-0 in the ILH. Top-ranked ‘Iolani fell to 6-1.

Despite graduating two Pac-10 Conference recruits (Stanford’s Spencer McLachlin and Southern California’s Riley McKibbin) plus an All-State libero (Colan Ishii), the Buffanblu extended their four-year, regular and postseason win streak to 63 matches.

The Buffanblu used a balanced attack — seven kills by sophomore Henry Cassiday and six apiece for dual outside hitters/setters Maddison McKibbin and Erik Shoji — to thwart the visitors. The three-time defending state champs had just four hitting errors in all.
