Some things stay the same, while others change, which is the case in KIF bowling this season.
The Kapa’a girls maintained a stronghold on the first-place standings with another win on Saturday at Lihu’e Lanes.
In the meantime, the Kaua’i boys finished in a three way tie on Saturday, handing both Kapa’a and Waimea their first points of the season.
The Warrior women were led by Marissa “Ms. Mojo” Agena (466), Ranelle Jacinto (463), Donica Abalos (461), Kelii Cacal (442), and Mindi Agena-Boyd (278).
