"After missing two years of volleyball, a football season and a basketball season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Spencer’s dream senior year was more than just stellar on the athletic realm.
He was KSM student body president, was heavily involved in Native Hawaiian issues, and his 3.6 cumulative grade-point average helped him earn an academic scholarship to LIU, where he will help lay the foundation for the NCAA Division I program that is just one season old."
"Spencer’s father, Charles “Bala” Spencer, suffered a stroke in 2017 that has relegated him to a wheelchair and left him without the ability to speak.
Bala Spencer, a longtime Kamehameha Maui girls volleyball coach, has recovered to the point where he can clearly appreciate what is going on at games that he attends with the help of wife Lisa Spencer.
“It really meant a lot when he was there,” Kale Spencer said. “I really attribute a lot of my success to what he’s done for me in my early life of guiding me and teaching me all the things that he’s learned. It was pretty special when he was there — I loved seeing him at the games and I really think that just him being there means a lot to me, means a lot to my family and means a lot to him.
Logan Spencer, Kale’s older sister, is a rising junior volleyball player at Whitworth University in Spokane, Wash. She has watched her brother grow up over his years at KSM, sometimes from a distance."
