Kaumakani, Puhi win KYBA Girls 14U basketballSupersonics down Hanapepe RefuGs in 12U playoffs

KAPA`A—Kaumakani Coach Fran Raguindin had a busy night at the Bernice Hundley

Gym at the Kapa`a High School campus when she piloted the 12 & Under girls

Kaumakani Supersonics to an opening night 40-7 win over the Hanapepe RefuG’s in

playoff action, and then with less than a ten-minute breather, took over the

reins of the 14 & Under girls Kaumakani Supersonics, and drove them to a

19-17 squeaker over the Pua Loke (Lihu`e) team in opening night action for the

KYBA 14U girls league.

Joanna Jacinto was top gun for the Kaumakani 12U

with 12 points followed by Chantelle Briones who chalked up 8


Chasen Sherman and Brandee Abuan combined for the Hanapepe RefuG’s

7 points.

Chasen Sherman and Abuan continued onward in the night as they

donned the uniforms of the Hanapepe RefuG’s 14U girls team, Chasen retaining

her familiar No. 4 designation while Abuan shed her No. 5 for a No. 21


Being outnumbered 10-6, the Pua Loke (Lihu`e) entered the arena

gingerly, being blanked 5-0 by the Kaumakani Supersonics in opening night of

the KYBA 14U Girls summer league.

But, shaking off the jitters, Pua Loke

rebounded 11-7 in the second frame before being bested 19-17 at the buzzer by

the Supersonics who were headed by Jenny Morita’s 5 points, everything coming

in the second half.

Balanced scoring marked the Pua Loke team who was led

by Maile Deguchi’s 5 points followed by Ashley Belisario, Tori Shimabukuro, and

Amber Thronas all chipping in 4 points apiece.

The Puhi Wildcats 14U girls

roared to a 46-11 win over the Hanapepe RefuG’s in the night’s
