Oct 19, 2012 | PC Sports


The month of October is turning out to be possibly the most successful championship run that the Pearl City High School Athletics Program has ever experienced in its 40 year history of competing in the Oahu Interscholastic Association. November is looking to be just as bright as PCHS teams have already qualified or are on verge of qualifying for state tournament berths.

Last night at the Schofield Bowling Center in Wahiawa, the Pearl City Charger boys and girls bowling teams continued on building their dynasty and legacy of excellence and honor with wins in the OIA Bowling Championships.

Earlier in the month, the boys and girls air riflery teams captured OIA Air Riflery titles in the OIA Western Division and OIA Championships.

The Chargers junior varsity boys cross country team added OIA Western Division and OIA Championships to the Chargers trophy case.

The Varisty boys and girls cross country teams compete in the OIA Championships at Hawaii Pacific University's Hawaii Loa Campus on Saturday.

The Pearl City Chargers junior varsity football team won the OIA White Division regular season with a record of 6-0. The team will compete in the OIA White Division Junior Varsity Football Championship Tournament which begins tomorrow with a semifinal match up against Kaiser at Kaiser High School.

The Pearl City Lady Chargers will play for fifth place in the OIA Red Division Varsity Girls Volleyball Tourmament on Tuesday and have already qualified for a berth in the HHSAA State Tournament.
