Walking into the gym and looking around, an individual can see all the years that McKinley High School has gained victory over all the schools in Oahu. Looking over old yearbooks and even The Pinion papers, which can be dated back to the early 1900’s, MHS has had a rich history. Among the pages, a reader will find the wins and loses our sports teams have suffered and prevailed over. MHS has conquered in all types of sports including football, volleyball, soccer and even bowling. MHS has had a proud winning streak that has made Hawaii history.

Some of the more noteworthy years in MHS’ history are from the 1930’s to the 1960’s, in which the school’s sports team was one of the major ones on the island.

Recently, the school has been known in Hawaii as one of the biggest public schools in the district.

Athletic Director Bob Morikuni said, “McKinley was always popular, if not the most popular and oldest schools in Hawaii. They were always known to have great sports programs.”

Taking third in their eastern division, the girls volleyball team is doing well this season. In judo, the boys lead the eastern division championship. Tennis and golf have done well this season. Baseball has had several good wins.

“Compared to last year, we are better,” Morikuni said.

Kaimuki, Roosevelt and Farrington are all schools that MHS has competed against. Not to say that any school particularly dominated, victories depended on the sports team and players. MHS has had many losses recently, but there is proof in the form of this season’s victories that the school is making a comeback to be proud of in the future.

    Although,we lose sometimes in sports doesn’t mean we’re weak.we give our best efforts out there.even if not in school,we’re still known as the tigers of Mckinley high school.sure there maybe some schools that are bigger than us,but that doesn’t mean their better,WE’RE THE OLDEST SCHOOL IN HAWAII TIGER FAM!! We may not be the greatest to others,but we’re our own optimum..we struggle at times but we get back up..? ..A tiger doesn’t give up when it goes hunting,just like when we have tournaments,we don’t stop till we tried our very best…I’m not in any sports at all,but I still try to give my best in JROTC…the uniforms,field trips,drills, etc. I try my very best at all,along with my fellow JROTC cadets… Giving up is not an option,but lets show the others what we’ve got!! ✊? ? ??⚽⚾???
