Volleyball Players Serve Up Good Deeds

Volleyball Players Serve Up Good Deeds

Punahou’s boys volleyball players have proven themselves to be national contenders in the sport, but they also are earning accolades off the court.

Last October, as a way to give back to future generations of the Punahou community, Shea Suzumoto ’19 organized a volleyball clinic for fifth- and sixth-grade students that was facilitated by members of the boys and girls varsity volleyball teams and the coaches.

Suzumoto said he wanted players to learn more about the School’s volleyball program and what it can offer.

Meanwhile, volleyball player Ikaika Van Dyke ’21 teamed up with his classmate, Puna Smith ’21, to organize the third annual Can-SERVE-Ive beach volleyball tournament. The November fundraiser, which has raised thousands of dollars for Queen’s Cancer Center over the past three years, was launched in 2016 by Ikaika’s brother, Parker Van Dyke ’18, and his classmate, Claudio Clini ’19.

For the group, the mission is personal. They all have family members or friends who have been affected by cancer and have witnessed these loved ones going through treatment.
