HONOLULU BOUND! Devin Ortal of Waimea concentrates on getting “the elevator”

to go down using one of three yoyos to capture the top prize in a yoyo

tournament held Saturday at Kukui Grove. Ortal, who used to yoyo, was on “a

break” until he was inspired by the antics of a yoyoist during a school

assembly, and brought out his yoyo’s. Troy Shanks placed second with Kendall

Kusaka taking third in the Advanced division. Michael Ishibashi, Chasen

Kaneakua, and Raphael Escalona were winners in the Beginners division. Ortal

gets a trip to O’ahu to compete in the state tournament scheduled for June 17

at Ala Moana. The program was sponsored by High Performance Kites.
