Kamehameha Schools Kapālama senior student-athletes Ashley Gooman (wrestling) and Kalina Obrey (basketball and volleyball) have been selected to the Enterprise Rent-a-Car/Hawai‘i High School Athletic Association (HHSAA) Hall of Honor as part of the 12-member 2019 class.

The haumāna were selected by a committee of current and former sports reporters, athletic directors and coaches from around the state. Selection criteria included athletic achievement as well as character, sportsmanship, academic record and community service.

Each inductee will receive a $2,000 scholarship, and will be recognized at the HHSAA Awards Banquet on Sunday, June 2.

Gooman is a three-time state wrestling champion, who capped her senior campaign by winning gold in the 122-pound weight class via a 6-1 defeat of Pearl Cityʻs Makana Cooper. Last week, Gooman announced that she will be joining the Midland (Nebraska) University womenʻs wrestling team as she pursues a college education. She is also an aspiring singer and songwriter, and has performed at multiple events on campus.

Earlier this year, Obrey was named 2018-19 Gatorade Hawai‘i Girls Basketball Player of the Year. Obrey led the Warriors to an 18-7 record and a HHSAA Division I state championship game berth after averaging 18.5 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game. As the Interscholastic League of Honolulu Player of the Year, Obrey is a three-time all-ILH honoree and was also selected to the 2018 USA Today All-USA Hawai‘i Second Team.

Obrey, the third Gatorade Player of the Year award winner in KS Kapālama girls basketball program history, has maintained a 3.63 GPA, and plans on playing basketball while attending San Jose State University.
