One reason for Hilo’s solid team chemistry is everyone is on a club team. McGrath, Leao, Kaapuni, and defender Mia Takai are on Pilipaa. Setter/opposite Makena Ahuna is at HI Intensity. The Canon sisters, setter Erica and hitter Taylor, play for Cuzins. Defender Jamie Chun is on Haili Jrs. Outside hitter Leialii Makekau-Whittaker, sister of CSUN setter Kamalu Makekau-Whittaker, has an Oahu club team.
