Led by Head Coach Pua Straight, the Warriors enter 2019 after a HHSAA Division I Runner-Up finish and a 20-8 record last season. Kamehameha returns a talented group of veteran players, led by 5’8 senior guard Mālie Marfil, 5’9 senior forward Noelle “Lagi” Su‘a-Godinet, 5’4 senior point guard Haley Masaki and 5’7 junior guard Camille Feary.
