We going to the "SHIP", we going to the "SHIP"!!!! So proud of all our boys and coaching staff for persevering through this long and grueling season. Starting way back in march for weight room workouts, spring ball, through summer training, camp and 13 hard fought games. We have finally neared the peak, it is in our sights and we are going to push through the toughest section and get to the top. Great job for doing what we needed to get to our ultimate goal, it was worth every bit of it.
But now the real work begins..... We have one game, one chance to fulfill our dreams and bring the KOA trophy to Houghtailing street. This is only the second time in the school's history at making a state final appearance and we are looking forward to the opportunity to bring home a win. We have 2 weeks to prepare for a physical, fast and well-coached, Hilo squad who dominated Maui High last night. We will watch film, break them down, and prepare our boys to play the best game of their lives.
Mahalo to our parents, alumni, community and administration for all your support up in Kauai, we did it for you guys. So much support throughout the year has helped to maintain our focus and continue to fight and win games. We have one more game and want all the support we can get for this biggest battle of the year. Let show out!!!
It will be another "WHITE OUT" game for the Monarchs so please wear your white Damien shirts.
- Mahalo Coach Eddie Klaneski
