HIGHLIGHTED STATS
1ST
STATE MEET (JUNIOR YEAR)
“Hunter entered the summer with hopes of a cross country season. He was putting in more mileage than he had prior to the 2019 season and was a leader for the young team. He got better each year that he ran, reaching the pinnacle of the sport in our state a year ago.”
Jared Welch
Head Coach - head coach of Maui High

Athletic Excellence


The state’s two-time returning Gatorade Runner of the Year, the 5-foot-10, 160-pound senior won the state meet as a junior and placed second as a sophomore in 2018 when he led the Sabers to a team state title. He was a two-time Maui Interscholastic League All-Star. Hawaii did not organize a 2020 cross country season due to pandemic-related concerns.

Academic Achievement


Shields has maintained a 3.96 GPA in the classroom. He has signed a National Letter of Intent to run on scholarship at Grand Canyon University this fall.

Exemplary Character


Shields has volunteered locally at the Maui Humane Society, and he has donated his time to multiple community service initiatives through his church.
