Dos Pueblos High and SBCC alum Sierra Cavaletto was a major contributor to a record three-point shooting night by the University of Hawaii-Hilo women’s basketball team in its regular-season finale.

Cavaletto knocked down six three-pointers in eight attempts and the Vulcans made a school-record 17 in an 89-49 win over Chaminade.

In 15 minutes, she scored a career-best 22 points on 7-10 shooting. He previous best scoring game was seven points.

“Every day after practice, she’s getting shots up,” coach David Kaneshiro told the Hawaii Tribune-Herald. “I’m happy for her. She worked really hard. She’s improved a lot throughout the season.’

Cavaletto arrived at NCAA Division 2 Hawaii-Hilo after SBCC coach Sandrine Krul contacted Kaneshiro before the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cavaletto played two seasons for Krul at SBCC.

At Hilo this season, the 5-foot-8 junior played in 20 games, averaged 3.4 points and shot 14-25 on three-pointers.

“She’s a great fit with the rest of her teammates and in the community,” Kaneshiro said. “I talked with her parents. Her hometown of Goleta is similar to Hilo.

“She’s a great fit, and we’re lucky to have her.”

Hilo’s season ended in the first round of the Pacific West Tournament. The Vulcans finished at 14-10.
