Hall of Fame: Milia Macfarlane Alapa (2001)

There’s no doubt that natural talent and athleticism run in Milia Macfarlane Alapa’s genes. Her father, Walter Macfarlane ’62, was the first Punahou athlete to earn nine varsity letters (in football, basketball and track), and a Punahou Athletic Hall of Fame inductee. They are the first father-daughter duo to be awarded this honor.

Alapa played both varsity basketball and varsity volleyball all four years at Punahou. As a starting point guard, she was the basketball team’s top scorer and assist leader three of the four years, leading the team to a state championship in 1998. She was named ILH Player of the Year in 2001 and USA Today co-player of the year in 1999.

As captain of the volleyball team during her junior and senior years, she helped the team capture ILH and state championships, and also piled up numerous individual athletic awards, including Nissan Hawai’i State Player of the Year and Gatorade Hawaii State Player of the Year in 2000.
