Self described "water rats," Kahea and Nohea Kahaulelio took their love of the ocean into the pool about six years ago when their uncle encouraged them to give water polo a try.
The sisters, largely inseparable out of the water, went on to contribute to OIA championships each of their four years at Kahuku and turned in twin performances in the Red Raiders' 17-3 win over Kapolei in the tournament final on Saturday at Central Oahu Regional Park.
The twins scored four goals each and the Red Raiders won their sixth straight league title and 12th in the past 13 years.
"It was amazing to finish this with my sister," Nohea Kahaulelio said. "People always say, ‘Why are you guys always together?' and it's like ‘Because it's better when we're together.' It's all teamwork and it was awesome."

After completing its second consecutive season as Hawaii's undefeated state champion, the Kahuku Rugby Club will compete for the nation's top spot at the Pacific Coast Cup Championship on May 7-9 in San Diego.
Kahuku High School graduate Hau’oli Kikaha has been drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the second round of the NFL Draft Friday.
Kikaha was the 12th pick in the second round and 44th overall.
The University of Washington outside linebacker was the nation’s leader in sacks with 19.0, as well as a unanimous first team All-American selection.
Dozens of Kahuku High School students checked-in to check out careers at Turtle Bay.
"The great thing is most of the employees shadowed are graduates of Kahuku, so the kids may know them from their neighborhoods, churches - they are family members. It's just a great community program," said Human Resources Manager Grace Kamae.
Students were found in the baking and prepping in the kitchen, at front desk and helping guests in the lobby.
Turtle Bay has been opening its doors for the job shadow program for more than ten years now. Students have to actually apply for the program and be in good standing to attend the half day event. After the shadow, they are required to write a paper about the experience.
"We have actually had people apply for jobs here and say they attended our job shadow program in high school," said Kamae.
It's only natural for Turtle Bay to reach out to the community. The resort opened in 1972 to help keep jobs on the North Shore after the shutter of the Kahuku sugarmill.
"I was born and raised in Kahuku, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work in Kahuku, said Ina Taea, a Sales Admin who graduated from Kahuku High School in 2003. "Turtle Bay gives me the opportunity to dodge the traffic to town and enjoy a five minute country drive to work every day. I love how Turtle Bay likes to hire people from the North Shore community and I look foward to seeing the students who shadowed us today be part of our team in the future."
