American School In Japan

Kadena happy to see someone else on other side of net

Visit by Panthers will be only meeting against D-I school for Perry and E.J. King.


Kadena bounces back to blitz ASIJ

Eric McCarter – who started at quarterback for the injured Wyatt Knopp – gained 160 yards on 11 carries and threw a 25-yard TD pass to Malachi Johnson.


Kinnick and Humphreys meet for first time on football field

They gathered for the team’s traditional Thursday pasta feed, in the school cafeteria at Humphreys, something the Blackhawks have been doing since Steven Elliott took the team’s reins in the 2016 season.


Down in numbers, Mustangs to count on experienced returners

Wideout-turned QB Oliver Rogers will be joined on offense by returning skill-position players Rhys Gallagher, Dean Hahne and Andrew Howe, all seniors and all capable of running the ball and playing receiver.


Volleyball preview

Dragons hungry to return to D-I throne

The 2017 volleyball season could be summed up in two words for the Kubasaki Dragons: Injuries and disappointments. At least until the third-place match of last October’s Far East Division I Tournament.


Cross country preview

High-powered teams in rebuilding mode

Nothing lasts forever, especially where chasing multiple Far East cross country team championships are concerned.


D-I baseball

Mustangs bust loose to win 5th straight title

Even with a new coach, American School In Japan’s baseball team continues to look unstoppable.


D-I girls soccer

ASIJ jumps up 5-0, tops Kinnick for crown

A year ago, Nile C. Kinnick broke out of the gate early for two goals en route to a 3-0 shutout of American School In Japan for its first Far East Division I girls soccer tournament title.


Far East track/roundup

More marks fall as Kinnick and potential new rival Humphreys triumph

She scratched on every attempt during last year’s Far East. Trinity Fiers vowed that she wouldn’t make the same mistakes again this year – and set a new meet record in the discus throw along the way.


Far East roundup

Two records fall in first day of track finals

Ja’Tavia Callier of Kubasaki and Nile C. Kinnick’s girls distance relay unit wasted no time shattering records as the Far East track and field meet got underway Monday.


Track preview

Even record-setting efforts might not topple Kinnick

Talk to any member of Nile C. Kinnick’s track and field teams, athlete or coach, about what’s made them so successful the past three-plus years – including three Far East Division I team titles – and they’ll invoke one word: balance.


Baseball preview

It's all about pitching - quality and quantity

A year ago, Frank Macias was enjoying the best of possible worlds for a baseball coach in a Far East tournament.


Boys soccer roundup

Teams have had a Devil of a time scoring against Kinnick

Travis Stevens might have been pleased enough about his team capturing the title in last month’s DODEA-Japan boys soccer tournament. But the way his Nile C. Kinnick team won the event was what really pleased him.


Prep roundup

Kubasaki primed for Far East softball run

Dragons take island regular season title, finals series for first time over rival Kadena.


Prep roundup

Kadena, Yokota still perfect in girls soccer

Okinawa-based Panthers win ASIJ festival in comeback fashion, while Japan-based Panthers romp over Edgren.
