Bruno long distance race today

Kaua‘i Kine softball heads to nationals
From June 26-27 at the Waimea Ballpark, the Kaua‘i Kine girls softball team hosted its coed and men’s softball tournament. They are heading to the national tournament. Mahalo and good luck, Kaua‘i Kine.
The Cocks 2 men’s softball team would like to send out sincere sympathy to the Napoleon Ohana. In memory of our “Braddah,” Raymond Kaiponohea Napoleon, they dedicated their games in his memory and brought home the tourney again this year. “Braddah” Ray didn’t play ball, he was more of a golfer. He took care of the team by having the coolers filled and chilled. He would have their fire ready with all the BBQ and smoke meat and he even fed us well. He was their “Iron Chef.” He will be missed.
Kanna, Oride get aces
Sharlyn Kanna of Kalaheo made a hole-in-one at Wailua Golf Course’s 17 hole, 112 yards using her Cobra 4 golf club. This is her first hole in one during the 10 years she has been golfing.
Dr. Michael Oride, of Lihu‘e aced Wailua Golf Course’s 14 hole, 168 yards using his Titleist 690 CE 5 iron on June 29. His wife, Gail, witnessed his first hole in one in his six year golfing career.
