Prep roundup

Edgren freshman wins DODEA-Japan tennis title

Zama wins volleyball tournament for first time, while Kinnick, Yokota and ASIJ runners take top honors in cross country events.


Trojans, Eagles prepare to battle for D-II football host rights

It’s a battle of football teams that have not competed for a Far East championship in quite some time.


Formats other than 11-man being considered for D-II football

Is there a possibility that Pacific Division II football might go the way of Division III in Europe, where five schools are experimenting with a six-man tackle format?


Prep roundup

Kubasaki regains volleyball title by stopping Seisen

The Dragons won the title in the first YUJO tournament in 2015, but had lost in the final to host ASIJ in 2016 and Seisen in 2017.


Kadena romps past Humphreys to grab title berth

With the win, the Panthers (4-1 overall, 4-1 D-I) qualified for their Pacific-record 11th D-I title game, including the last six straight.


ASIJ-Kinnick game has clear title implications

Red Devils will likely earn host rights with victory, while a Mustang triumph opens door for Kadena to join other two in tie.


Better late than never for Edgren football

The Eagles’ season begins Saturday after a delay of more than a month, when it was unclear whether the Eagles would field a team.


Kadena shuts out Kubasaki to sweep series

Eric McCarter rushed for 105 yards and two scores on 10 carries and was 2-for-5 passing, both completions for touchdowns of 53 and 34 yards to Rasheed Fountroy.


Weather pushes two football games back three weeks

Kadena-Yokota and Nile C. Kinnick-Kubasaki won't happen now until Oct. 26, leaving a single game on the schedule this weekend.


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 big, Kinnick rallies to upend Kadena

Trailing 33-6 with less than 8 minutes to play, Red Devils score final 28 points to get some revenge for last year's title-game defeat.


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.


Kadena not 'sharp,' but still routs Kubasaki

A combined 51 flags flew during the contest; Kadena had three touchdowns called back due to penalties.


Kadena sports new QB, but fields plenty of familiar faces

It's been years since Panthers haven't had a Sego in the lineup, but plenty of talent returns for defending D-I champions.


D-I boys soccer

Kubasaki gets revenge on island foe in taking title

Ryo Elliot’s name will never be prominent on a soccer stat sheet, says his coach at Kubasaki, Chris Eastman.


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.
