Akakū Captures the 2012-2013 MIL Paddling Season ChampionshipWritten by Lou Diliberto
The Maui Interscholastic League (MIL) Paddling season wrapped up on January 26th with undefeated seasons for both the Seabury Hall girls and the Kamehameha Maui boys crews. The Seabury Hall mixed crew won for the fourth time this season and represented Maui at the State Championships on Oahu with a second place finish.
The MIL Championship Regatta was held at the Kahului Harbor with high schools from all over Maui County participating. It was a full day event of fellowship, teamwork, and healthy competition. For those who couldnʻt make it, Akakū: Maui Community TV was there to bring it to you live in your homes and on your computers via its new LiveU unit. Viewers, spectators and paddlers alike were ecstatic to learn that they were live for all of Maui County to see. Lānaʻi and Molokaʻi paddlers were even able to send shout-outs to viewers back on their home islands.
"Thank you Akakū for sharing our culture and our racing to the Maui community. We really appreciate Akakū spending your Saturday with us and honoring us by being here as well," said Seabury coach Paul Luʻuwai.
This is just the beginning of live events to be covered by Akaku. It is the hope that with this new technology, more local events can be covered as they happen.
An edited version of the 2013 MIL Championship Regatta is now available for a suggested donation of $10 at 333 Dairy Road in Kahului. It will also be airing on Channel 55 throughout the month. Upcoming air dates and times are shown to the right. For more information call (808) 871-5554.
