Mick Matmen Post 10-3 in Title Bid Tri-captains Brian Tamanaha, Edmund Lum, Edward Fujioka and Head Coach Calvin Nomiyama guided the Tiger grapplers to another successful wrestling season. It looked good for the matmen as they began their season heading for a possible championship in 1974-75. But high hopes and dreams were cut short by injuries. Their season started off on a winning note against Waipahu which gave them confidence in preparing for upcoming matches. They easily passed by Castle, Kaiser and Pearl City. But Radford proved to be a fatal adversary by defeating them convincingly. This loss provoked the Micks to polish up on their tactics which lead to a win over Kailua. But hopes were too high as shown by straight losses to Kaimuki and Farrington. The suffering grapplers paid for their defeats and made no other choice but to put their all into the rest of the season -- beating their last four contenders, Kalani, Waialua, Campbell and Kahuku. Their season record ended with a respectable 10-3 over all. Due to misfourtunes, the Tigers placed 5th in the OIA Tournament and went on to the State Tourney on March 14. Coach Calvin Nomiyama can count on a fresh and young team next year as a lot of seniors will be leaving.

Unyielding Tiger Spirit Presents No Win Season for Cagers The 1974-1975 Varsity Basketball team went through another year of defeats and frustrations. But whatever lingered in each individual's mind on the team, the cagers' spirit to bring pride to the McKinleyites was there intact. They played their best in attitude. Their minds and hearts were there to win, but youthfulness and lack of experience hindered their dreams for the OIA. A new coaching staff came with a whole new team (only one was a returnee from last year). The Tigers practices zealously, polishing up an inexperienced team. The tiger season was a dismal one with a record of no wins. A close opening loss to Kalani darkened the cagers' spirit to fall hard against Castle by a large margin. Throughout the season it was a repetition of the same story. The student body supported the team optimistically overlooking their faults throughout the season. Experience gained through the campaign should prove invaluable to them next year.

Swimmers Set Record Times in OIA Meets Quantity became the only factor which thwarted the McKinley Swimmers' attempts to capture the championship this year. With a limit of three events a swimmer can enter, the Mick rally fell short in manpower rather than performance. McKinley's outstanding team of Wane Medeiros, backstroke; Edward Yee, butterfly; Derek Gaspar, breaststroke; and Glen Yamaguchi, freestyle, stole both the Eastern OIA and the OIA 200 medley relay crown with record breaking times. The boys also claimed second in the medley at the state championships to finish fourth out of 22 teams. The swimmers streaked through a successful preseason which was climaxed by a trip to Maui. Each excelling in their individual events, the Tigers were able to place among the top ranked swimmers in the OIA. With only seven swimmers, the boys' team surprised many by seizing second place in overall team points at the OIA Eastern Championship Meet. McKinley's young but determined girls team, though not as strong as their male counterparts, gained enough team points against their opponents for a respectable finish and show much promise for next year's competition.
Girls' Basketball Interest Remains Strong With an increasing interest and involvement in sports, the girls basketball team entered a second year of extramural action. Still not sanctioned by the OIA, the Mick girls and six other public school teams prepared early in November for the annual University of Hawaii Tournament. Added help from physical education teacher Joseph Tom enabled the Tigresses to develop their talents and learn different techniques. Practicing before and immediately after classes created a solid dedication which could carry the team to a championship in March.

Sophomores comprised a majority of this year's rifle team as they posed a constant threat to powerhouses Farrington and Leilehua. Practice began in September for McKinley's young shooters where they learned to fire in the prone, kneeling and off-hand positions. Firing their rifles required 90 percent concentration and calmness. The Mick girl shooters forecasted much winning potential as they yielded a hard fought match to divisional leader Farrington, losing by only fourteen points. The girls ranked a promising second while the boys closed out a at fourth. McKinley's Golf team opened the season with only a few returnees, but it packed a punch in the OIA division. Transferees from Guam and Kapaa proved themselves in the running season. In the season opener, the golfers trounced the Govs at Makalena Golf Course. The Tigers beat Kaiser, Castle and surprisingly scored a valuable win over Kahuku, last year's champions. But heartbreaking losses to Kailua, Kalaheo and Kalani put the Micks in a tie for fourth place. Golfer Head Coach Lester Chuck was very satisfied with this year's team although he had lost several valuable prize players from last year. They all showed talent and patience as they played games on the most exquisite sites like Kuilima. Since most of the players will be returning next year, they should rate very high next season.
