Part of sports fanaticism is civic pride. I see it in every game I attend. Whether it’s as a fan myself at a pro ball game or at the KIF games or local recreational events I cover for The Garden Island, behind every team or club is a crowd that shows its support.
HANAPEPE — Kauai High School’s varsity baseball team defeated Waimea, 1-0, Wednesday afternoon at Hanapepe Stadium.
LIHUE — Island School dropped two sets by default to give Waimea a 5-0 win in the girls and a 3-2 edge to the Waimea boys Tuesday during a Kauai Interscholastic Federation tennis match that was rescheduled following a rainout Saturday at the Kauai Community College tennis courts.
KAPAA — Kapaa’s Kiran Costa had nearly 30 hits for points, and Justin Faidley added key blocks and his share of hits to lead Kapaa to a 3-0 win — 25-17-25-20, and 25-21 — over Waimea on Tuesday during the Kauai Interscholastic Federation boys volleyball games at the Bernice Hundley Gym in Kapaa.
LIHUE — The Red Raider boys won at home to stay within one game of the second round lead with one match left in the regular season. Kauai High School’s varsity boys volleyball team defeated Island School in straight sets Tuesday evening — 25-17, 25-14 and 25-12.
The Kauai Senior Softball League had six postponed makeup games on tap in an attempt to complete the first round of the season. Weather played a role once again as the senior circuit got four in the books before the weekend storm washed out play.
In the midst of some chaos, even the smallest bits of order and normalcy can be a welcome sight. As the relief efforts continue for areas all over Kauai and specifically Hanalei, Haena and Wainiha, some distractions can often assist in the process.
