May 29, 2011 - Punahou Sophomore Feeds 10,000!
August 29, 2010 - Finding Nemo
In the real life version of the story Nemo Komar could not be found. The last minute cancellation left Stein Metzger, Dustin Chun and Flavia Brakling short a player this past Saturday for the Duke Kahanomoku 4 Person Draw. Fortunately for team Metzger, Curt Vaughan graciously agreed to fill in, allowing the team to compete. Normally a setter, Curt was pressed into the role of the team's primary attacker. The team got stronger with each match, eventually going undefeated to win the tournament. Of course having 3 time national champion and former beach olympian, Stein setting didn't hurt. That combined with some key kills from Dustin, stellar defense from Flavia, and great team chemistry made team Metzger an unstoppable juggernaut by the end of the tournament. They defeated the 2nd place team of Justin Harris, Jeff Hall, Troy Hotz and Nadica Karleusa by a score of 11-1 in the final match.
