Rising star

April 5th, 2014

I don't normally write about anything having to do with intermediate school or JV sports, but when someone breaks a 31-year-old record in track and field it catches my attention.

Madison Moku broke a record set in 1983 at the ILH championships.

Moku, an eighth-grader at Hawaii Baptist, ran 200 meters in 26.13 in the finals Saturday at Punahou. Amy Hallett of St. Andrew's Priory ran 26.7 (hand-timed) in 1983. Moku had run 26.71 in the trials.
