PRESS RELEASE – The Independent Interscholastic Athletic Association Karerån Galaide 2022 wrapped up the three-race series with 500m, 1000m, and 1500m sprints with perfect race conditions Saturday at Matapang Beach Park.

Teams earned cumulative team points with each race and overall awards were presented in the Sottera, Sotteru, and Sottero divisions: The Academy of Our Lady of Guam’s Cougars were crowned Sottera Champions with a total of 118 points, followed by Guam High School Panthers with 95 points, and St. John’s School Knights with 66 points.

The Father Duenas Memorial School Friars held on to a comfortable lead to finish as Champions in the Sottero division with 104 team points, with the St. John’s Knights finishing the season strong closing the gap with 96 points, followed by the Guam High School Panthers with 79 points.

Repurposed wood used as award plaques donated by artist and Guam paddler Misako Sablan helped to support the #cleanregatta best practice #5; using an upcycled trophy, as part of The Independent Interscholastic Athletic Association of Guam’s Karerån Galaide commitment to sustainable event stewardship as part of Sailors for the Sea Clean Regattas Program.

Senior Year paddlers were recognized during a final Senior Lap with their coaches with family and teammates cheering them on.

Race director Natalie Calvo noted, “The Karerån Galaide has thrived since its’ inaugural year in 2005 through the support and effort of many dedicated people and with the support of the Guam Kayak and Canoe Federation. This season, although short, has been so rewarding to see how the teams have melded in a short time. In every season, there’s a point where you can see everything start to click, like an “aha” moment, and this week it showed. The paddlers did great! I have to thank the IIAAG and its’ member schools, the Guam Fire Department, the Department of Parks and Recreation, First Aid Service and Care – FASCARE, and especially The Poksai Canoe Club for providing the resources to ensure safety and a successful league.”
