Rising star

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.

    Is that former UH defensive back Sam Moku's daughter?

    Coach Chow could use some fresh legs and speed on the football team. Better offer a scholie Norm! Who cares if it's a female as you need whatever talent is available out there. 1-11 team can't be picky!


  5. Turfwar:

    Could she be the daughter of former UH football player Sam Moku who has been involved with track for a very long time.


  6. Sam:
