KEAAU, Hawaii: Kamehameha Schools – Hawaii gets to hold the newly created Kipimana Cup, after defeating Keaau High School on the football field, 36 to 21.
These highlites come to us courtesy Baron Sekiya and Hawaii24/7… showing how Kamehameha jumped out to a big 23 to 7 halftime lead over the Cougars, before rolling on to victory.
That means the Warriors will get the inaugural Kipimana Cup, the trophy instituted by W.H. Shipman, Ltd… the large Puna land owner who was at one time the owner of the lands that are now occupied by both the Kamehameha Schools – Hawaii campus, AND Keaau High School.
“Kipimana” is how Hawaiians referred to Shipman more than 100 years ago, and the name is used today as a street name in the Keaau area.
Representatives of the company say W.H. Shipman is awarding $500 to the booster club of each school. But the real prize is a perpetual trophy and official bragging rights for the winning team.
