It’s great to be a part of this team. The friendship and bond is so unique compared to any other team I’ve been on. We’re friends on and off the field. When we pass each other in school, we stop and talk. It’s really fun.”

When it comes to girls high school soccer in Hawai’i, the Ka Makani wahine are the gold standard. Under the direction of head coach Steve Perry, HPA has won a record seven consecutive state championships and are perennially among the best squads in Hawai’i.
The winning culture is strong in Waimea and what makes the HPA program special is that each year the team starts from scratch, eager to climb back to the top of the mountain.
The team’s success has led to many next-level opportunities for Ka Makani players through college scholarships. “We have been fortunate to have some very talented kids come through our school,” says head coach Steve Perry.
Gabbie Ewing, a 2015 HPA graduate, recently wrapped up a stellar four-year career at Concordia University. Following her time with the Cavaliers, Ewing garnered attention from Skövde KIK, a professional team in Sweden. She signed a deal with the club, becoming the first former Ka Makani player to go pro.
