Golden Moments for Sunrise Athletics Harriers

in the  IMG_0201      Sunrise Athletics participated at the Hawaii State Junior Olympics Track & Field Championships on July 7-8 on Oahu.  Qualifying night started with Sunrise athletes muscling their way to the finish to secure final spots for a chance at running in finals.  Shaely Dela Cruz just competed in a highly competitive week-long volleyball tournament the previous week, but had enough reserves to finish in 8th place overall in the 400m sprint.  Cyrus Bower, another middle school sprinter, had similar results in having to put in a final surge the last 50m to secure a spot and finished 8th overall in the 400m.  High school sprinter, Sydirah Aricayos, had a busy day at finals and sprinted home for several medals in the following events: 100m-3rd place, 200m-2nd place, 400m-1st place. Aricayos also claimed gold in the long jump by soaring past her competitor with a length of 14’-6”.  

Another jumper, Cathryn Krueger, leaped to victory over a stacked field with a jump of 13’-8.25”.  Eight year-old and newcomer Rylan Gumbs, despite being among the youngest of jumpers for his division, was able to take home an 8th place medal with a jump of 9”-5.75’,  which was an inch shy of the fifth place spot.  Meanwhile, in the triple jump, Cassidy Denault hopped-skipped-jumped her way to gold with a distance of 26’-8.75”. Teammate Teryn Tominaga, of whom had all four events on one day, had enough legs left to follow with a bronze.

As for the middle and long distance races, Sunrise Athletics continued to show its strengths and talents in those events.  Among the middle school athletes, Kacie Tagawa, despite being mixed with a group of older-aged harriers, showed no fear against her competition and took an early lead in the 1500m.  Tagawa set a personal best in the event with a solid time of 6:06.49, which resulted in a bronze medal finish.  Later that day, Tagawa put forth an equal performance in the 800m to capture a silver medal. Teammates Akemi and Teryn Tominaga followed in 4th and 5th place respectively.  High schooler, Jaeda Yamasaki, put forth a steady performance in the 3000m by hanging close to a pack of Renegade runners.  In the process, she surpassed several athletes and shaved close to a minute off her personal best time, which was good for gold.

Among the boys, middle school athlete Kederang Ueda, of whom races with the heart of a lion, is always driven by the need to prove he can stick with the “big boys” of the club. Thus, his efforts resulted in a hard-earned double gold in the 1500m and 3000m distance races.  Another up and coming youngster, eight year-old Shane Tominaga also ran the 800m race.  Tominaga started off conservative, but made his way to the front line and had a nail biting finish against Pacific Rim’s Zamontae Miller.  Tominaga claimed silver with a personal best time of 2:51.45.

With great performances from outer-island clubs and all Sunrise athletes, the day belonged to the golden boys of distance running.  When athletes finish their high school season in May, some are more inclined to retire their track shoes for the summer. However, that was not the case for the Sunrise club harriers.  The hard work and time that these motivated harriers put forth, paid off.  The Sunrise boys dominated the distance races, among a mixture of older and fairly talented outer-island harriers.

The first day featured 3000m runners stepping onto the line.  Steven Chung, the current BIIF 3000m champion from Hilo High School, was untouchable and led the way for the rest of his teammates, of whom train with the mentality and focus of packing like wolves on a hunt.  While content to let Chung be in his own world, Sunrise teammates Elisha Watkins, Joshua Ho, and Deylan Okinaka worked to stay within 14 seconds of one another and passed athletes the last stages of the race to claim second to fourth place overall.

The following day was filled with even greater excitement.  In the 1500m, a pack of mixed shades of blue remained intact for the first two-laps of the race.  Then, Sunrise athlete Eric Cabais-Fernandez, running calm and collected, took control.   Menehune Track Club’s Frank Condello refused to bow out and Sunrise teammate, Chung, hung in third.  However, during the closing stages of the race, a dramatic finish unfolded.  Menehune track coach pointed, “Look at that Big Island boy.”  Unexpectedly, out of nowhere, Chung displayed what champions do when the stakes are high.  Chung threw in his signature kick to surpass Condello with about 75 meters remaining, and at the end, Chung out leaned teammate Cabais-Fernandez to earn his second gold.  Both boys were separated by eight-hundredths of a second, and were immediately followed by strong performances from teammates Ho and Watkins respectively.

Motivated by the previous race against his own teammate, Cabais-Fernandez bolted out quick, and never looked back to claim a gold of his own in the 800m race.  A pack of Sunrise athletes followed Cabais-Fernandez, and charged to the finish within eight seconds of one another.  Ho, Chung, Watkins, and Okinaka rounded out the top 5 spots respectively.

Another successful run for Sunrise Athletics, and with much gratitude to the following summer coaches for their support in coaching these keikis: Debbie Bierne, Tony Denault, Nick Finger, Brent Nakamura, Ivan Okinaka, Vandey Okinaka, Skye Rances, Kaylee Rapoza, and Dyson Sato.

IMG_0531On March 5, Waiakea High School held its third annual student-driven fun runs – sponsored by Sunrise Athletics (SA) & King Integration LLC.  The event was co-chaired by Adrian Larkspur and Jazmine Early.  About 90 participants attended that day, and despite the scorching sun, runners still managed to blaze through the course under such conditions.

The first race of the day was the 1.5mile race, which commenced with a crowd of youth runners eagerly awaiting the start of the race.  “Ready, set, go” was heard, and all one could see were quick, tiny feet propelling the legs of these young runners as they whippeRush runnersd out of the curve of the track.  A herd of harriers were led by Sunrise Athletics’ Shane Tominaga.  Tominaga, also a Hawaii Rush soccer player, was followed by a trio of fellow soccer club mates in Kalsen Nacis, Connor Gonsalves, and Rogelito Doratt, and each made
a point to stay within striking distance of one another. Lately, Hawaii Rush, has been at the racing scene in support of organizations with great causes, and as a result has made their presence known.

After the runners made their way out of the stadium to move forward along the course, there was a brief moment of silence.  However, that silence did not last long, Tominaga came sprinting into the stadium and took a commanding lead with a finishing time of 10min and 02secs.  Gonsalves, of whom had also distanced himself from the rest of the field, led the way for the remaining Hawaii Rush athletes and cruised in at second with a time of 10:50.  Following Gonsalves was Edinn Kitagawa (11:17), the winner of this past December’s WHS Keiki Healthy Fun run.  Kitagawa came in third with a time of 11:17 and edged out Rush athlete Rogelito Dorat (11:19).  Rounding out the remaining Rush athletes that put forth top performances and took home division medals that day were the following: Brady Gonzales (12:03) and Kalsen Nacis (12:59).  

Sunrise Athletics was also well represented by Adam Bento (11:39) and Cyrus Bower (12:41), of whom both placed 7th and 9th respectively to make their way into the top ten overall spots.  The lone female to crack the top ten was Sunrise Athletics’ Rani Williams, of whom had never raced this distance before, came in fifth with a fine time of 11:35.

CodyRanfranz[1]The 5k race featured a handful of the Big Island’s elite high school harriers showcasing their talents and featuring what spectators and competitors will expect in this upcoming BIIF track and field season.  At the time that the 5k race began, these tough-minded athletes were not fazed by the heat at all.  Under the blazing sun, BIIF Cross-Country Champion Cody Ranfranz from Konawaena, traversed along the course with ease to cruise into first place with a blazing time of 17:42.  Following Ranfranz’s stellar performance, were a stream of Waiakea High School runners of whom some are Sunrise Athletics Club members as well.  Slater Inouye (18:08), Rylie Cabalse (18:36), Kederang Ueda (20:03), and Deylan Okinaka (20:57), rounded off the top five athletes respectively.  All athletes are standouts for their high school teams, with Sunrise Athletics’ Ueda being the only intermediate athlete to prove that he too can compete among these high school harriers.  Other top performances from male intermediate athletes came from Sunrise Athletics brothers Glen (23:33) and Jayden Gebin (23:50) that came in 11th and 14th overall.  

Among the female harriers, Waiakea’s Saya Yabe (22:27), a BIIF and state medalist for IMG_0332cross-country and track and field, was the only female to break the top ten barrier.  Yabe, like several of the other runners, had prom the night before; therefore, she started the race as a warm-up, but still managed to distance herself from a field of young and up-and-coming female runners.  Fellow Sunrise Athletics teammates, Ella Shapiro (23:44) and Akemi Tominaga (23:59) followed Yabe to claim second and third respectively for the remaining top three overall spots.  Other intermediate females that posted great times were the following: Kacie Tagawa (24:31) and Teryn Tominaga (25:03) of whom came in 16th and 17th overall.

Teachers[2]In closing, Waiakea High School’s Larkspur and Early, Sunrise Athletics, and King Integration LLC extend their mahalo to the following for participating in the fun run: WHSSA-Parents[2] and Waiakea Intermediate staff, SA athletes, WHS athletes, and other community members.  Also, we appreciate the support with donations from the SA familiess and from the following companies for your donations of gift cards and items: Big Island Delights, Big Island Running Company, and KTA.  Finally, events like these would not be possible without the the on-going help and assistance from emcee Eddie Ombac of EddieO[1]Team BioAstin, the SA families and WHS Key Club with event-day processes and course marshaling.

Again, congratulations to all participants that day, and a huge mahalo to ALL!!  We look forward to your participation next year!!

Dominating the Field

Dominating the Field – February 11, 2017 P&R Track Meet

It’s that time again, where eager athletes from various schools and clubs congregated to display their athleticism, spirit, and enthusiasm in the sport of track and field.  On February 11, 2017, Parks and Recreation held its age group meet at Waiakea High School’s Ken Yamase Stadium.  As usual these youngsters amazed their families and themselves with performances that kept spectators at the edge of their seat.

The day started with leaps and launches, and the results showed similar schools or clubs continued to dominate certain events.  Kea’au Middle School, under Coach Randee Arkin, continued to develop strong high jumpers with spectacular leaps.  Kea’au swept the 11-12 year old age division by taking the top three spots for both genders.  Damon Sharp won with a height of 4ft. 6in, followed by teammates John Scanlon and Brandon Burton for the boys.  Keaau’s Martha Derr showcased her leaping abilities by winning with a height of 3ft. 8in., followed by teammates Sealena Lee-Balga and Mailee ‘Cervantes-Bautista, of whom were just one-inch off from Derr’s mark.  All the girls’ high jump marks would have also placed them in the medal standings for the 13-14 year old age group as well.  

Meanwhile in the the throwing events, Pahoa captured the top spots in the 11-12 year old girls division.  The girls showcased their strength and power in the discus and shot put events.  Pahoa’s Kaeley-Kalawe threw the discus as though if it were just a frisbee gliding through the air and landing at a length of 44ft. 4in.  Teammates Jazlyn Rojas and Schiko Kurashima-Schutz also followed to claim second and third respectively.  Kalawe also earned a bronze medal with teammate Nadia Anderson.  The Pahoa girls also dominated with a clean sweep in the shot put event.

In the 6-8 year old division, several athletes made a mark on the track.  Sunrise Athletics’ Shane Tominaga hopped, skipped, and jumped to a whopping 16’ 4” to claim gold in the standing triple jump with his closest competitor over two feet behind.  In the same event, Sunrise teammate Nathaniel Jensen claimed silver with Waiakeawaena’s Chael Aku.  On the other hand, once the races began, the copy-of-img_9280Panaewa boys defined the meaning of speed.  With their quickness from the start, Kingston Frazier, Raycen Kalai, and Charles Rose claimed gold through bronze in the 50m dash. 

Speaking of speed, included with a blend of stamina and mental toughness, Kamehameha teammates Conner Gonzales and Lucas Kay-Wong displayed their versatility in their events for the 9-10 year old age division.  Gonzales and Kay-Wong claimed gold and silver respectively in the 400m dash, which is an event that is sometimes feared by sprinters.lucas_connerjpg  Later that day, the swift-footed Kay-Wong turned on the jets to distance himself from the field in the 200m dash (33.11), and crossed the line for gold.  Meanwhile teammate Gonzales displayed his soccer speed in the 100m sprint (15.26) to claim silver behind Keaukaha’s Jayden Leslie (14.68).  Conner also earned a bronze medal in the softball throw with a length of 112’ 6.5”


In the girls 9-10 age group, Waiakea Elementary took control of the sprinting events by placing athletes in every event from the 50m dash to the 400m sprint. Shyleen Dela Cruz led the way by claiming gold in the 50m dash (8.12), followed by teammate Jhayda Turner taking first by a blink of an eye with a time of 15.74 compared to a 15.75 over St. Joseph’s Michaela Costales in the 100m dash.  Moving on to the 200m dash, a talented group of Waiakea Elementary athletes sprinted for a clean sweep led by Ava Herr, Kaitlyn Miura, and Jordyn Carvalho respectively.  Madison wrapped up the sprinting events with a gold in the 400m dash (1:19.56).

Meanwhile in the 11-12 year old division, Sunrise Athletics girls demonstrated their depth by placing an athlete in every event from the 100m sprint to the 1200m middle-distance races.  Cathryn Krueger claimed silver in the 100m (14.73) dash, while teammates Devin Buttz positioned herself in the mix for the 200m (31.90) for bronze and Rani Williams alsoWP_20170211_15_13_02_Pro.jpg claimed bronze in the 400m (1:14.79) dash.  In the distance races, Sunrise Athletics has had the reputation for developing strong distance runners, and it showed in the 800m with Gabrielle Shapiro and Akemi Tominaga taking the top two spots.  Meanwhile, in the longer race, Phoebe Wyatt, Taarini Godbole, and Teryn Tominaga finished first through third respectively in the 1200m run.


Among the oldest age group, Glen Gebin and Kapana Kanae-Kane capitalized on being older, stronger, and quicker to excel in their events.  Gebin went for gold in the 400m dash (1:01.07) and the long jump (16’ 5”), while teammate Kanae-Kane went three for three with a bronze in the 100m dash and long jump, and a gold in the 200m dash (27.20).

The list of performances for all school and clubs could go on forever.  Regardless, all athletes had great performances in their first P&R meet of the season, and this was accomplished by efforts of the Parks and Recreation and Waiakea High School staff.  It is through their efforts, time, and dedication that Hawaii’s youths are provided with this opportunity in the sport of track and field.  Stay tuned for the results of the final meet of the season that was held on February 25.

Sunrise Athletics Fun Runs & Family Fun Day – Supported by BIOASTIN

DSCF0181  Best Athletes In the World

Sunrise Athletics will be hosting a FUN RUN and FAMILY FUN DAY – Supported by BIOASTIN on November 6, 2016 (Sunday).  Sunrise Athletics is an organization that was founded in 2010 by Mary Jane and Lance Tominaga, in order to expose their children and many youths in East Hawaii with the opportunity to gain skills, strategies, and confidence from the sports of cross-country running and track & field.  Since its establishment, Sunrise Athletics has continually guided, trained, and/or chaperoned athletes to prestigious events, such as: Foot Locker West Regional Championships in California, Hawaii Junior Olympics Track & Field Championships on Oahu, & the National Junior Olympics Track & Field Championships in the mainland.  Some of the BIIFs gifted local harriers that have participated in the past events are just to name a few: Axl Aricayos, Steven Chung, Jodi Go, Slater Inouye, Adrian Larkspur, Sam Marrack, Ian McQuate, Vandey Okinaka, Skye Ombac, Louie Ondo, Kaylee Rapoza, Dyson Sato, Saya Yabe, and many others.

Furthermore, the organization has been actively involved in supporting and giving back to the community.  Sunrise Athletics has participated in local races hosted by the Big Island Road Runners Club to support their scholarship fun or their Thanksgiving drives.   A fun race that the club supported was the Big Island Marathon where athletes not only ran for fun, but supported the marathoners at a water station while cheering them on.  In addition, the club has sponsored the WHS Junior Class Fun Run for the past couple years, in efforts to support the schools goals in raising funds for their future class activities and graduation.  Hence, Sunrise Athletics is committed to giving back to the community and “paying it forward.”

So, come and join Sunrise Athletics with a day of fun and enjoyment with your family, and support the town’s local athletes.  For more info and to register online, go to
