Matautia is first Kodiak player to play at four state tournaments
Amy Willis knew she was going to inherit somebody special when she first encountered Kalameli Matautia on the volleyball court. At the time, she was playing for Kodiak Middle School. Matautia, clearly the all-star out of the group, made lesser-skilled players feel like stars. She coached and nurtured everybody on the court. “I remember being thoroughly impressed with Meli as an eighth-grader with her character,” W...
