Ha’aheo stalemates Kamakazes

By The Garden Island

Michaela Rapozo and Mia Cabulisan each finished with four points as Ha’aheo and the Lihu’e Kamakazes battled to a 14-14 tie following one overtime period Saturday at the Kaua’i High Gym. Makana Fujimoto finished with six points to lead the Kamakazes in the county’s 12 and Under girls basketball league. Kaira Kupihea continued to pace Wailua, finishing with 15 points in their 23-8 showing over Island School in the finale. Hayley Uliana topped the Island School effort with four points.

Gee Unit A soars in 12U boys hoops

Keane-Shane Agoot finished with 17 points and Kanoa Nartatex added 13 points as the Eastside rolled over the Kaua’i Fire Raiders, 59-17 in the county’s 12 and Under boys basketball games, Saturday in Kalaheo.

Isaac Ramboyan finished with six and Aeron Inouye added four points in the Raiders’ efforts. Kahale Fagarang finished with a game-high 13 points and Kaimana Jaquias added seven marks as Hanama’ulu topped the Westside Hornets, 34-28.

Vinda Carineo and Cliffton Callejo paced the Hornets’ efforts with 12 and 10 points respectively. In an earlier game, the Gee Unit A soared over the Gee Unit B, 79-19. No scorers were available for that game.

Looking for left-handed clubs

Left-handed golfers are surely hard to find around the island and a junior golfer, who’s a lefty, is looking some left-handed golf clubs. Call 332-8091 if you have clubs you’d like to furnish.

Pu’uwai Canoe Club women’s practices

Pu’uwai six man outrigger canoe club will begin women’s practice Feb. 1 at 5:30 p.m. at the Wailua River. Men’s practice will begin Feb. 2 at 5:30 p.m.

The club is located on the Kapa’a side of the Wailua River on the mauka side of the highway.

If your New Year’s resolution has been to get yourself into better shape, have more fun in your life, meet new people, and make new friends, you’re in luck: the group is looking for fun-loving, hard-working women and men who enjoy the outdoors, the river, the ocean and working toward a common goal. For more information, contact Brian at 635-6311.
