Unbeaten Kubasaki took third last year after three straight championships.


Far East cross country

Samurai newcomers cross line first in school first

Former volleyball player Angelique Armijo and fellow junior Owen Young, a transfer from Zama, give Perry top D-II individual honors for both boys and girls for the first time.


Athletes, coaches adjusting to new cross country format

Due to a new format, Monday’s Far East cross country meet features two-thirds the athletes it did a year ago.


Korean league tries a new postseason format

The league is trying a format in which teams with winning records regardless of division face each other in KAIAC Cup volleyball tournaments, and teams with sub-.500 records take on each other in KAIAC Plate tournaments.


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?


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.


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.


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.


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.

Far East track/roundup

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.


Neal leaps to DODEA-Pacific record in long jump

The Seoul American senior jumped 5.7 meters during Saturday’s DODEA-Korea “last chance” Far East qualifier.
