Princess Nahi‘ena‘ena Elementary named ‘Fastest School in Lahaina’

Four Lahaina schools raced for the title of “Fastest School in Lahaina” at the 2018 XTERRA Kapalua Trail Runs. Lahainaluna High School, Lahaina Intermediate School, Princess Nahi’ena’ena Elementary School and King Kamehameha III Elementary School competed in the 5K trail run and were sponsored by their partner, T S Restaurants.

The Maui T S Restaurants each partner with a Lahaina school as part of their Legacy of Aloha Program: Kimo’s with Lahainaluna High School, Leilani’s on the Beach with Lahaina Intermediate School, Duke’s Beach House with Princess Nahi’ena’ena Elementary School, and King Kamehameha III Elementary School with Hula Grill. In addition to the XTERRA Kapalua Trail Run sponsorship, the T S Restaurants also sponsor monthly Educator Awards for their respective schools.

The times of the top five runners from each school were averaged and Princess Nahi’ena’ena Elementary School was named the “Fastest School in Lahaina” for the third year in a row.

The winning 5K team included Ian Haskins, Lukas Bernard, Natalie Hoffert, Alex Ono and Floribel Elies, with an average time of 38:08. The team will be presented with the perpetual XTERRA Teacher’s Race Trophy by T S Restaurants.
