JV Quint Displays Finest OIA Score Card Following the ascending basketball trend, the junior cagers reversed last year’s 6-8 mark for their finest OIA season. Maryknoll, Moanalua, Aiea, Mililani, Mid-Pacific and Campbell fell to the JV Tigers, with only Damien edging McKinley by a bucket, for a 6-1 preseason score. Second-year Head Coach Alvin Tokuda emptied his bench as the Tiger Cubs romped over the Kahuku Red Raiders. Hit hard by the flu epidemic, the jayvees were overcome by their following three adversaries before squeaking past Roosevelt. The Cub cage team tallied 20 points in the final period to upset an undefeated 5-0 Kaimuki five. Although outscored 14-3, the jayvees held back a fourth quarter Kaiser rally to slip past the Cougars. Kailua scored an outrageous 28 points to defeat the junior Tigers. Castle slid past McKinley by a mere five points. After the Cubs lead 28-22 at the half, Kaimuki mounted an incredible 24 points to McKinley’s 15. The jayvees retaliated a previous first-round loss to Kalani and passed the Kaiser quintet before falling to the Roosevelt cagers. The season ended on a winning note over Farrington, dealing the JV cagers an impressive eight win and six loss record.

Attitude, Confidence Lead Varsity Basketball Team To Two Upset Victories McKinley basketball took a turn for the better as the Tigers broke a 35-game losing streak with two upset victories over Roosevelt and Kailua. Sporting seven returnees, the cagers looked to a rewarding year after posting four consecutive triumphs for a 6-4 preseason mark. High hopes were shattered as the Micks fell to Kahuku's foul line shooting in the season opener. McKinley bowed to Windward District powerhouse Kalaheo in a tough contest. In a most controversial game, Farrington acquired its first victory at the Tiger's expense. A late McKinley rally could not stifle a 20-point Kalani lead, only coming close as six points at the buzzer's sound. The Tiger five proved that winning was indeed possible by surmounting Roosevelt with a dozen Mick points. The hot-shooting Bulldogs of Kaimuki upset McKinley in a highly aggressive battle. Fronting a reorganized line-up, the cagers registered their second season victory over Kailua, a 48-46 conquest in preseason. The Knights of Castle dethroned McKinley in an uneven match. The Tiger machine grew cold after possessing a 26-20 lead over Kaimuki at half time. Honolulu leader Kalani demonstrated its district domination by again frustrating the Mick cage team. McKinley fell nine short of Kaiser, improving a 29-point deficit suffered earlier in the first round. Roosevelt avenged the Tiger five by defeating McKinley by the precise margin. The machinery again withered as Farrington shaded the Micks, to compile a 2-12 record. The Tigers averaged a staggering 20 fouls per game, resulting in three-point plays for the opposition. But second-year Head Coach Tony Andrade observed noticeable improvement in the cagers, three of whom will be three-year veterans next year.

Girl Spikers Show Marked Improvement, Boys Make OIA Volleyball Comeback Team spirit and great effort marked the improvement in the girls' volleyball team, moving from the one win and seven loss record of last year to an even 4-4 record. The girls marched undefeated through their first three games, losing the fourth to Farrington. The fifth game of the season was a let down to Kahuku, who later won the OIA championship. McKinley's fourth victory came when they spiked Kalani in a two out of three thriller. They ended the season in fourth place. Boys' volleyball made a comeback at McKinley High School, with boys competing in OIA action. The last boys' volleyball team competed in 1970. Athletic Director Joseph Ho initiated the program by assigning James Takemoto as head coach. For a first-year team, the Tigers proved though by posting a 4-6 record with upsets over Kailua, Nanakuli and Farrington. Hard practices and warm-ups everyday showed the aggressiveness and willingness of the underclassmen team. Coach Takemoto is assured of a "great season" next year since all of his players will be returning with experience.

Female Keglers Finish Second in Tight Competition; Boys Place Fourth Undeniably respectability honored this years' girls' bowling squad as they fought to a second place finish in tight OIA competition. The poise of four returning seniors and crucial talents of four underclassmen contributed to a 23-13 record, the best in four years of existence. After five games, the girls held first place with a 12-3 mark. However, they could manage only four wins against eight losses during their next four contests and tumbled to the fourth position. Initiating a quick turnabout, the girls were able to knock Farrington out of the top spot with a 2-4 triumph. They then proceeded to take five of their next six lines to climb into second place. Their successful season gained them a berth in the State Championship which involved eight top schools. Although the girls did not place well in the tournament, theirs' remained a team to be proud of. Youth and the absence of solid leadership were major factors in a disappointing season and fourth place finish for the boys' bowling team. This was the lowest standing the team has ever taken since it's beginning seven years ago. The boys held on to first or second place virtually all through the first half of the season until a four game losing skein did them in. They started off the second round with a loss to Aiea. Although the defeat did not affect their high standings, it did start off their losing ways for the following three matches. The Tigers salvaged a 3-9 record from their skid but it dropped them to fourth place late in the season. Frustration hounded the team as they could not advance any higher in the standings despite closing out the campaign with a pair of 2-1 victories. That ended a trying year with definite hopes for the next relying on five possible returnees.
