Hall of Fame: Breanna Pearson (1992) Dembroski

It isn’t hyperbole. No girl has ever dominated the league and state track and field championship meets as Breanna Pearson ’92 Dembroski was able to do in the early 1990s. 

As a junior in 1991, Pearson won the ILH long, high and triple jumps, and ran legs for the buff ’n blue’s winning relays teams in the 400- and 800 meters. She added state titles with victories in the long and triple jumps, and the 800-meter relay, as well as taking silver in the high jump as Punahou won its 12th consecutive state title. 

Pearson finished her career playing a major role in the School’s 12th consecutive and 20th overall state title (then both national records). She won all three of the jumps – long, triple and high – as well as lead-off runner on the 800 meter relay team to give her 10 state gold medals. She was also recognized three times as the most outstanding female at the Punahou Relays as well as one of Punahou’s three female athletes of the year and the Gatorade Circle of Champions selection from Hawai‘i. 

Pearson went on to compete for Duke where she broke the triple jump for the Blue Devils. Married to Casey Dembroski, she is the director of product management for Epsilon, a global marketing technology company.
