A Farrington Coaching Champion

Twenty years ago, in 1989, Caroline Tatupu finished a brilliant playing career with the Iolani girls basketball team. In her four years there, the cousin of former NFL star Mosi Tatupu helped her team claim four straight ILH championships and two state titles.

“I played center; Melanie Azama was our point guard,” she recalls of those outstanding teams.

Fast forward two decades later and Tatupu is now coaching the Farrington Governors’ girls basketball team. In just her second year at the helm, she has the Governors playing at the same championship level she realized herself in the late 1980s at Iolani.


Brydgette Tatupu-Leopoldo is no stranger to pressure.
