LIHUE — The Kaua’i High Red Raiders’ girls and boys bowling teams, coached by Wil Tabian (Boys), Melissa Nobriga (Girls) and Jaye Tabian (assistant), rolled to the Kaua’i Interscholastic Federation title Saturday, despite losing the weekend’s matches at Lihue Lanes.
The Menehune boys downed 2,333 total pins, which added 1 KIF point to their season’s overall KIF standings, but it wasn’t enough to topple Kaua’i’s 3.5 standings points. Waimea ended in second place with 1.5 points, and the Kapa’a was third with 1 KIF point.
The Kapa’a girls strengthened their KIF standings Saturday with a total pinfall of 2,154. The total edged Kaua’i’s 2,147, but like the boys, it wasn’t enough to offset the Red Raiders’ successful season.
The Raiders finished with 5 total KIF points; Kapa’a was second with 2 and Waimea was third with 1.
Warrior Cory Napoleon led Saturday’s high scorers with a 190 in game one, a 195 in game two and a 203 in game three.
Waimea’s Chris Aguilar chipped in 189 in game one, and Kaua’i’s Jon Peter Sit finished with high scores of 195 and 186.
Kaua’i’s Jolene Koerte scored 196 for a high score in the girls matches. Warrior Amber Abalos had a 203 in game two and Waimea’s Virginia Aguilar had a 187 in the first game.
