Sports Illustrated ranks Punahou #1

If you didn't catch the May 26 issue of Sports Illustrated, here's the scoop, Punahou School in Hawaii was named the number 1 high school athletic program in the U.S. of A! 

According to the KGMB site

That's out of more than 38,000 high schools across the nation. SI's criteria focuses on "all-around excellence during the last 10 years and included state titles won and college athletes produced."

Now when I tell people I only played J.V. soccer in high school, I have an excuse.  In fact I can say something like, "had I gone to any other high school in the country I would have been a letterman in every sport...starting freshman year."

Of Citadels and Dukes

I love the "subtle" prose that the author of the SI online article uses to describe Punahou.  My favorite line of description of the school is, "a palm-lined, 76-acre citadel of academic and athletic excellence where Aristotle meets Duke Kahanamoku." 

While I don't think either Ari or Duke attended Punahou, and if they did I'm positive they never met,  there are a bunch of other famous folks who did

Go Barry, Go!

Probably the alum most in the news recently is Barry from the class of '79 a reserve member of the state championship basketball team his senior year.  A huge congrats to him on making history and clinching the nomination.  Now its time to focus on the old guy :)
