Girls 100m High Hurdles

The first of many battles that will be waged on the track between two dominant forces in the girls events. 2-time HHSAA 100m High Hurdle Champion and OIA female athlete of the year Kahuku JR Zhane Santiago earns the top seed with her #1HI All-Time/All-Conditions record-breaking performance (14.61) at this year's OIA Championships at Kaiser. BIIF female athlete of the year Hawaii Prep SR Ku'uipo Nakoa is the newcomer here. Well, sort of. Nakoa just started hurdling this year and has already become the #2 seed in the girls highs (14.9h). Nakoa backed up that performance from 4/23/2010 at Kaiser High School in BIIF record time (15.16) at this year's BIIF Championship finals 5/8/2010 at Konawaena. To say that both girls are peaking would be an understatement. They'll both need to stay healthy, as both are attempting 6 events this year. They are joined in the rankings by Kauai's FR Phenom Kawehi Louis-Diamond (15.55), Kamehameha Maui SR Kamalani Keomaka (15.93), Wamiea JR Jayme Jacinto (15.97) and another accomplished FR hurdler, Iolani's Abrianna Johnson-Edwards (16.13).

Boys 110m High Hurdles

2009 Gatorade Hawaii Male Track and Field Athlete of the Year and HHSAA 110m High Hurdle Champ Ka'u SR Jacob Edwards (14.47) has been performing consistently ahead of the pack this year, after sitting out the first 2 weeks of BIIF action with a strained hamstring. One of 5 events Edwards will be competing in at this year's HHSAA Championship (he's qualified for 7), he is capable of earning his first of 2 HHSAA records in the hurdles, chasing Maui HS alum Dana Navarro-Arias' 1999 FAT performance (14.44). Edwards' next closest competitor is Kauai HS JR Darren Acoba, who PRd at the KIF Championship 4/29/2010 with his (15.08). Acoba is most improved in this event from last year's 21st place finish at the HHSAA Championship (16.72). They'll be challenged by Mid-Pacific JR Daniel Wagner (15.12), Radford SR Matthew Kitiona (15.40) and Kamehameha Hawaii SR Francis Blas III (15.49).

Girls 100m

In a show of pure speed and strength at this year's Honolulu Marathon Invitational 4/16/2010, HHSAA defending girls 100m champ Punahou SR Ashley Satterwhite (12.33) stood out from the crowd. If anyone is capable of erasing Baldwin alum June-Ann Lusk's (12.25) mark from the 2005 HHSAA Championship at Mililani off the record books, it's Satterwhite. She's run unchallenged all season, and her next closest competitor here is Maui High SR Alana Seabury (12.52), who has run consistent 12.5x (FAT) all season both upcountry and at sea-level on the Valley Isle. Closely following Seabury in the rankings is Kahuku's Santiago, whose 12.53 PR came with the persistent trades at her back at the 2010 OIA Championship at Kaiser High School. Radford SR Kaeli Patton (12.55) was another benefactor of the OIA Championships being moved to Kaiser, her next fastest time (12.90) earned her the bronze at last year's HHSAA Championship Finals in Kea'au on the Big Island. The one that has benefitted most from competing with Satterwhite all season is Christian Academy FR Raion Black (12.65). She is followed by Radford SO Tyler Whitener (12.66), Hawaii Prep's Nakoa (12.69) and Kapolei FR Chermayne Yago (12.69) in the rankings for the girls 100m.

Boys 100m

It is unlikely that any of this year's entrants in the Boys 100m will match the speed of Waimea's ironman Moses Fierro. Fierro has been clocked 3 times this season under 11 seconds including his PR at the KIF Championship (10.69), which is more than a tenth of a second faster than the nearest competitor, Damien SR Jonathan Padron (10.80). Padron made his return to the oval at the ILH Championship,  after a month-long rehab for a hamstring injury, and only for a prelim performance in the 200m (22.93). Although both are capable of breaking former St Anthony alum and Philadelphia Phillies standout Shane Victorino's HHSAA Meet Record (10.80), they'll need to be healthy to do it. Fierro's teammate Torrey Santiago (10.94), Kaiser FR Saint Thompson (10.97), Kapolei SO Devin Jenkins (10.98), St Louis FR Jeremy Tabuyo (10.98) and Moanalua SR Essaye Villarer (10.98) round out the list of legitimate (FAT) sub-11 second performances this year.
