What’s Up On Spectrum OC16 In June
Best of 2018 – 2019 Part 2
Where did the year go? Summer is here and our 30th year of high school
sports is done. As we all catch our breath for season 31, here’s part two of
the best of the year…
SOFTBALL: Iolani recaptures the crown.
In his first season as head coach, one of Hawaii’s all-time greats Benny
Agabayani led the Iolani Raiders to their first D1 title since 2000. It was the
Agbayani show in May as sisters Aleia (Cal commit) and Ailana tore through the
tournament, ending with a 17-2 victory over last year’s state champion Leilehua.
Iolani set records for most runs and largest margin of victory in HHSAA title
BOYS VOLLEYBALL: Punahou wins again.
Things looked a little bleak for the Buffanblu this season. The seven-time
defending state champions lost four games prior to the state tournament –
including three to ILH rival Iolani.
But the “Sons of Oahu” showed championship resilience in the postseason
defeating OIA Champion Moanalua in five sets in the semifinals,
and defeating Iolani in the title game in four sets to claim their eighth
straight state crown.
BASEBALL: Punahou wins…again…and again.
What goes well with a volleyball title? How about a Baseball championship.
The Buffanblu reigned supreme on Maui. Punahou defeated
OIA champion Mililani 7-3 to win their 14th state title in school history
and their first since 2010.
We’re not done yet!
Youth Baseball takes over OC16 with the Cal Ripken Hawaii 12U/
10U State Baseball Championships all throughout the month of June.

Keiki Fishing Adventures
Exploring Hawaii’s Best Fishing Spots
The O’Day Ohana
If you have a love for the ocean and the thrill of discovering the different
creatures that live in our Island waters, “Keiki Fishing Adventures” is the
show for you. The O’Day children – Elijah, Sarai, Jaidon-Patrick and Ozias,
host this weekly plunge into all things fishing with special guests, “how-to”
informational segments, cooking demonstrations and of course, lots of
fishing around our 808 state and beyond.
The show’s producer and the patriarch of the family, Patrick O’Day
shares that the original concept for the show came from the kids. Fishing was
an outdoor activity that the family enjoyed for many years and they noticed
that there were shows on TV that featured fishermen going after big catches,
but no one seemed to do a show that was geared toward younger audiences
that taught principles and do’s and don’ts of the sport. Eventually, they
floated the idea to their dad of making a show that did just that, which
started the wheels in motion for the creation of “Keiki Fishing Adventures”.
Patrick describes it as a family-friendly show where kids show kids
how to fish. The show has a fun, educational feel to it and introduces
themes of ecology and being environmentally responsible. Part of the goal
is to get young people to unplug and enjoy the great outdoors. You’ll notice
immediately that the kids feel totally at ease with all aspects of fishing,
as if they were born with a fishing rod in their hands. The sport
of fishing seems to be in their DNA. Patrick describes the kids as being
highly competitive with each other, trying to outdo one another
for the biggest catch. And they’re also responsible stewards of the sea.
After reeling in many of their catches, you’ll see them tag and release
the fish in observance of laws regarding quotas and legal sizes of fish that
can be caught.
In addition to seeing them on screen, the kids are also active in the
production of the show. They serve as lighting grips, camera operators
and also help edit the show. For all of them including Patrick, these
skills were learned “on the job” with no formal training. When asked
whether the kids are interested in making television a long term
career, Patrick says he could see Sarai, Jaidon and Ozias in front
of the camera for a long time. Elijah is someone he also envisions
behind the lens as a producer.
Their exposure on Spectrum OC16 has made them recognizable
in the community. People young and old often come up
to them in public, eager to talk about the show. Originally from Kauai,
the family is currently moving to Oahu so you’ll see them fishing
around hot spots on this island. Stay tuned for up coming shows
featuring fishing trips to Mexico and spotlighting the world’s
largest fishing show in Long Beach, California. The future is
bright for the O’Day kids and their fun and informative
“Keiki Fishing Adventures”.
