Like I’ve said many times before, I am going to miss this group. In years past, when the awards were given out, there were only 3 or 4 Lunas left. Very anti-climactic. In 2009, I had a shot of Jackie Owens, Kaila Nip, Jackson Britt and Stephen Adolfson. In 2010, I had a shot of Kaila Nip, Jackson Britt and Stephen Adolfson. In 2011, I had Kaila Nip and Jordan Baclay. So this year, with the girls winning the team championship and more boys qualifying for States, I had a blast shooting the awards ceremony and the after “party”.
Did some fun some, like the entire team jumping off the wall at Centre Court. I didn’t realize Miyana did it with her air cast on and on one take, Alec almost landed on someone’s foot! That would’ve been disastrous. On both takes, Maui High’s Jhun Gumboc was clowning in the back.
