The domination continues in KIF riflery and Waimea head coach Major Vic Aguilar has his boys and girls shooting down every opponent on their way to an undefeated record so far this season.
On Thursday, every athlete on the boys end, managed to shoot over 200 and their girls squad had all but one individual making it over the 200 hump.
The Menehune boys dismantled Island School, 1191-1039 and the girls in blue dominated as well, beating the Voyagers, 1185-1020.
Top shooters for the Menehune men included Kevin Aguilar (243), Chris Aguilar (239), Jesse “BB Jr.” Choi (239), Brian Martin (236), and Kekoa Masuda (234).
The competitive nature on the westside is so tough, that Major Aguilar has set a standard of shooting 200, or not making it to the contest on Thursday.
The top Waimea girls were Kelly Joyce (242), Sharla Shimono (238), Jenni Ueno (236), Lovely Abalos (235), and Ceci Sun (234).
Kelli-Rose Hooser (209), Kelsey Ritchie (206), Michelle Woltmon (203), Richelle Rindenour (203), and Sonya “Da Shotgun” James (199) led the Island girls.
Erik Talvi (218), Rory Marsh (215), Kevin Dhorne (208), Michael John (204), and Skyler Workman (194) paced Island’s boys.
Meanwhile, the Red Raiders kept up with Waimea, sitting patiently, just one game back, with wins over Kapa’a (Boys: 1075-899, Girls: 1096-853).
Leading the way for the Red Raider boys were Harrison Yamamoto (224), Aaron Braun (223), Cody Navarro (217), Kendall Kusaka (212), and Jason Cabot (199). Maureen Sibolboro (246), Casey Shimokawa (219), Charissa Riofta (218), Liane Muraoka (210), and Jessie Lynn Nakamoto (203) were the top performers for the Kaua’i girls.
Kapa’a’s top male shooters were Reyn Mossman (196), Ian Ramos (180), Travis Toguchi (179), Jacques Amo (176), and Max Vanderfort (168). On the female side, Marie-Joy Agacid (206), Heather Walker (184), Brittney Sutton (175), Sonia Correa (152), and Jenny “Where’s Forrest Gump” Espina (136) led the way.
KIF air riflery shoots its way to Thursday for another pair of matches, as Waimea hosts Kaua’i and Kapa’a travels to Puhi to battle Island School. Shotgun start is at 3 p.m.
