Soares, Asuega-Stark delivered in the clutch




Female Athlete of the Week: Bryanne Soares, Kamehameha volleyball
Bryanne Soares responded just as her coach hoped she would when adversity hit the Kamehameha senior head on last week.

After a shaky start to New City Nissan Division I Girls Volleyball State Championships, the 5-foot-9 setter finished strong as helped the Warriors capture their 22nd state title and was one of five from the team selected to the all-tournament team.

Soares tallied 102 assists, 18 digs and seven kills in Kamehameha's three matches last week. She appeared in nine of her team's 10 sets, but it was the one set she did not play — set 2 in Thursday's quarterfinal sweep of Kapolei — that may have had the biggest impact on Soares.

In place of Soares, Warriors coach Chris Blake inserted junior Kahiau Kaalele as Soares watched from the bench. It wasn't until midway through the third set that Blake re-inserted Soares.

"It sounds cliche, but it's the ‘next-person-up' mentality, where for her to understand that if things aren't clicking the way we want to, sometimes watching it from the side allows for that kind of reflection," Blake said. "It wasn't necessarily a doubt in our mind or who would start when we played Moanalua (in Friday's semifinal round), but she was such a good teammate about it, which to me shows her character and willingness to put her team first."

After Saturday's four-set win over Punahou in the championship match, Soares reflected upon Thursday's events.

"Definitely that night I wasn't myself, but I knew my team had my back after that." said Soares, who is committed to play for Oral Roberts University (Tulsa, Oklahoma) next year.

"My coaches and I had a little talk after that match and they said, ‘We have your back and your team has your back,' so I knew that even if I wasn't playing a perfect game, I could always rely on them and I could always get back and it just put me in a better mindset, a better place and I just felt so much more comfortable with myself that I knew that my teammates and my coaches and my family and our supporters have us and all of that helped me play more controlled and play more fluid," Soares said.

Perhaps playing with more fluidity was the key for Soares, who Blake describes as quite the "cerebral" player.

"She's always trying to figure out how to do those kinds of things — she's a smart kid — so it was a matter of beginning to trust her thoughts and what she was doing and I think she did that over the course of the season," Blake said.

Blake praised Soares for her performance during a mid-season tournament in Las Vegas last month, as well as her play during the single-elimination tournament portion of the Interscholastic League of Honolulu schedule earlier this month.

"She was flowing that week and she played really well in that (five-set) Iolani match that we won," Blake said. "With what she did to distribute and stay calm was impressive, but one of her best matches was that last game at Punahou (on Oct. 11) where we swept them (for the ILH title). She was ultra-focused, you could see it in her eyes that she was just dialed in and just fed the right hitters in the right spots. She kept us in a good spot and choose good times to set the middle. Although our middles didn't get a ton of sets, she peppered in just enough in the right spots."

Soares, who recorded 60 assists in that Oct. 8 win over Iolani to tie her season-high mark, also did well to mix in her own offense here and there throughout the season.

"She was pretty effective with it. Most teams forget about it because they don't track her and then she'll get one and that just brings another wrinkle into what she's doing," said Blake, who added that another part of Soares' game tends to get overlooked.

"She's definitely an under-rated blocker. She's not the biggest blocker, but she got some timely blocks and she understands that it's a challenge for her, but she works so hard at it that when it's time and we need one, that we can get it," Blake said.

For the season, Soares totaled 49 blocks (0.5 per set) in addition to 253 digs (2.7 per set, 5.9 per match). She also racked up 1,088 assists (11.7 per set) and led the team with 34 service aces (0.4 per set). Of her 384 total serves this year, just 23 resulted in service errors.

"She may not get a lot of aces, but she's caused a lot of bad passes by the other team by executing our game plan at the service line. She was able to hit her spot on the regular, which caused a lot of havoc and made things easier on our offense as well," Blake said.

Soares was one of three senior co-captains for the Warriors, along with middle blocker Noelle Sua-Godinet and outside hitter Keonilei Akana.

"I'm very proud of Bry. Over the course of the last two years she's come a long way with her confidence and the evolving leadership role that she took on for our team," Blake said. "Those three were really, really key. Even between sets when the coaching staff is talking tactics, they're over there running the timeout, talking about the things they're gonna be doing and showing their leadership qualities and especially for her, showing that leadership helped us pull through," said Blake, who has coached Kamehameha to 10 of its state championships.

Soares returned the credit to her teammates and coaches.

"I have to give it up to my girls for sticking with me this whole season and my coaches, who really guided us and really prepped us for this and it really helped us to execute to know that they had that trust in us," Soares said.

Also named to the all-tournament team from Kamehameha were libero Tara De Sa, outside hitters Devin Kahahawai, Maui Robins and Akana, who was selected as the most outstanding player.

Male Athlete of the Week: Laa Asuega-Stark, Baldwin football
Laakea Asuega-Stark put together his best outing of the season last Friday in Baldwin's 40-0 win at Kekaulike in the final week of the Maui Interscholastic League schedule.

The junior quarterback completed 21 of his 35 pass attempts for 216 yards. His four touchdown passes were the most he's thrown in a game all season. It was also the first time the 5-foot-11, 165-pound Asuega-Stark did not toss an interception in 2019.

"It was definitely his best game of the season," Baldwin fifth-year coach Pohai Lee said. "He managed the game pretty well, although he still missed some throws that he should have had, but the improvement was there. It was the first game where he did not throw an interception and we constantly talk about ball security and taking care of the football, so that's a positive in that respect and hopefully that will continue."

Asuega-Stark opened the scoring against Na Alii with his 15-yard TD pass to Isaiah Richard just a few minutes into the contest. He tossed scoring strikes of 6 and 22 yards to Danelle Daniels and Kapena Kamai, respectively, in a span of one minute and 43 seconds of game time during the second quarter to help the Bears take a 24-0 lead by halftime.

Near the midway point of the third quarter, Asuega-Stark scampered into the end zone on a 4-yard TD run. A few minutes later, he hooked up with Richards again for a 46-yard scoring play that stretched the Bears' lead to 37-0.

"He has a great work ethic. In the offseason he puts in the time and I know he goes to a lot of camps. Laa has that drive in him where he wants to compete at the highest level and test himself, so that's why he puts in the work," Lee said.

Lee added that Asuega-Stark has the wheels to make defenses pay with his legs, should things break down in Baldwin's run-and-shoot offense.

"I describe him as a dual-threat guy, but I feel he doesn't run enough on his own when he should and that's what I would like him to do, in terms of making the defense defend everything," Lee said. "A lot of times he'll give the ball up and he's turned into more of a pocket passer this year, but I'd like to see him run more."

Asuega-Stark is also a member of the Bears track and field team during the spring season, where he competed in the 100- and 200- meter dash events, as well as the long and triple jumps.

As a freshman, Asuega-Stark was pressed into starting duty on the varsity team against Southern California-power Mission Viejo, but played the rest of the season at the JV level.

"That was more just as an emergency because we were missing our quarterback back then and we just kind of broke (Asuega-Stark) in, but he was a competitor that game," Lee said. "When you're that young you don't really have the grasp of the game at that level, so we kept it simple, but he just competed and showed a lot of heart."

Asuega-Stark took over as the starter as a sophomore to open the 2018 season and has not relinquished the job since.

"His strength right now is experience. He has a pretty good grasp of what we're trying to do, although each opponent is different and we've tweaked our game plan every week, but he's one that is not going to back down from the competition."

Lee said that while Asuega-Stark is competitive on the field, the junior is well-rounded off of it.

"He's a great kid, he does the right things, he represents his family and his school well, he does well in school, he gets along with his teammates, so there's a lot of positives to his game off the field," Lee said.

To be sure, Asuega-Stark and the offense got a lot of assistance Friday from their teammates on the defensive side of the ball, who held Kekaulike to 96 yards of total offense and forced four turnovers.

"I don't think our defense gets talked about enough because that's been the biggest turnaround for us this season," Lee said. "They gave the offense opportunities and we try to hopefully maximize and capitalize on them, but the defense creates a lot of turnovers, which we wanted to, and that's a tight-knit group with lots of chemistry under practically brand new staff, so we're happy with their play."

Baldwin had clinched the MIL's lone berth in the Division I state tournament a few weeks back with its second-round win over Maui High on Oct. 12, but was coming off of 17-14 loss to Kamehameha-Maui going into last week's regular-season finale.

"We're on our way. It was great to see, in the last game of the regular season, that we were able to kind of put things together," said Lee, whose team last appeared in the state tournament in 2016.

The Bears lost to eventual-champion Mililani, 49-28, in the quarterfinals of the Division I state tournament that year. Cross-town rival Maui High has represented the MIL at states in each of the last two seasons since then.

"We're just happy to be back," Lee said. "We're fortunate since it's been three years, so this is kind of the reward for our guys and we want to be able to represent Maui as best as we can."

While the bracket for the First Hawaiian Bank State Championships have not yet been announced, Baldwin (5-3) is expected to host OIA runner-up Leilehua in a first-round game at War Memorial Stadium in Wailuku on Nov. 15.

"We're looking forward to playing this game. When you get to this level any team is going to be tough no matter who you play. We don't play actually for three weeks, so I think it comes at a pretty good time for us because we've got guys that are banged up too, so hopefully they can heal up and get ready, but it's nice to have prep time, especially against a playoff-caliber team," Lee said.
