By now most folks are award that Campbell High School won the State Baseball Championship, led by State of Hawaii player of the year, Ian Kahaloa. We hope to see Ian in major league baseball someday! Also, Campbell won the Girls State Softball Championships, led by Elisa Favela who in the championship game, clubbed a pair of home runs, drove in seven runs and tossed a complete game to lead Campbell to a convincing 16-4.

Let us also shine the light on another group of champions who have not gotten the same recognition. The Campbell Swimming Team has made James Campbell High School history! They jumped into the season with a hunger in their bellies and a fire in their hearts.
This past season, star swimmer Makoa Alvarez, age 18, has taken his year-round training with West Oahu Aquatics and Campbell to new heights; he made sure nobody was faster than him. Makoa is being officially inducted into the Hawaii High School Athletic Association’s prestigious Hall of Honor for his non-stop wins all season long, as well as for his multiple new Hawaii state records. Way to go Makoa! You have made us all proud.
The Campbell Men’s Relay A Team, consisting of Makoa Alvarez, Josiah Ahuna, Raymon Tutewohl, and Samuel Bass, have won OIA West, OIA Championships, and placed 3rd and 4th in the 200 Medley Relay and the 400 Freestyle Relay at State Championships.
This has been a very exciting year for the Campbell swim team, being that they are currently the #1 OIA Men’s Swim Team. Now they will be saying goodbye to their seniors and hello to new comers, by getting them trained and pumped up for next year’s swim season. It cannot be stressed enough how influential all our supporters have been for us. On behalf of the Campbell Swim Team, I would like to give a huge Mahalo to the community for your continued support. Come watch these cats swim. GO SABERS!!! Go Campbell, a school of champions!
