Konawaena stuns no. 1

Goliath can't seem to keep up with the Konawaena Wildcats.

For the second time in as many nights, the defending Big Island Interscholastic Federation girls champions upset a nationally ranked team. On Friday night, Konawaena shocked No. 1-ranked Riverdale Baptist (Md.) 49-41 in the semifinal round of the ‘Iolani Classic.

Chanelle Molina, the returning All-State player of the year, scored 22 points to pace Konawaena. It was a phenomenal performance for the Wildcats, a team of players no taller than 5 feet 8 — mostly in the 5-4 to 5-6 range. They were dominated in the paint early and often by the Crusaders, who had a frontcourt of 6-4, 6-2, 6-1 and 6-1.
