Instead of just two, there’ll be four KIF teams trading serves in Po’ipu at the Kiahuna Tennis Courts, tomorrow (weather permitting) for another set of KIF tennis matches.
Matchup: The Red Raider tennis team is coming off of an impressive first week of play, two weeks ago, with a win in both the boys and girls matches against Kula. Meanwhile, Waimea was able to grab a split against Kapa’a last week. Kapa’a will try to continue to improve against Island.
At 12 noon, Kapa’a and Island School will battle and after the completion of their contests, the Kaua’i and Waimea matches will take place.
The start time for the second set of competitions should start around 2 p.m.
Kaua’i remains undefeated after convincing wins over Kula in the season opener in Hanalei.
However, the Menehune should pose a threat to the unblemished Red Raider mark, especially in the boys’ contests.
Island School got into the win column last weekend, with a win over the Kula girls.
An interesting matchup should shape up between Island School’s top boys singles player Justin Vea and Kapa’a’s number one singles performer, Danny Rodrick, who fought off a tough challenge from Waimea’s Jake Anderson, last Saturday.
If the courts stay dry, there should be many other good matches to take in at the Kiahuna Tennis Courts, with four teams battling for bragging rights.
