The best place to be today is at home watching March Madness, because almost all of going on the sporting events throughout the weekend have been either cancelled or postponed.
The KIF’s baseball opener between Waimea and Kapa‘a was postponed because, according to Kapa‘a athletic director Greg Gonsalves, the Ron Martin Field isn’t suitable for play.
“We will reschedule for Saturday, April 8 at the end of the first round,” Gonsalves wrote in an email.
Also, coaches for both Kula and Kapa‘a decided to postpone today’s matches due to rain and road conditions between Kapa‘a and the Hanalei Bay Resort Courts, where the matches were supposed to take place.
According to Kaua‘i High School athletic director Charlene Quinones, the Kaua‘i/Island tennis contests were also post-poned.
Kaua‘i High School golf coach Winston Ogata mentioned that today’s KIF golf match at the Po‘ipu Bay Golf Course is still up in the air.
However, by 8 a.m. this morning, officials of the course are supposed to make a decision whether to have the event or not.
In other community sporting events, the team roping and barrel racing contests scheduled for Sunday at CJM Stables were postponed.
Kaua‘i Soccer Association (KSA) games for the entire weekend were also cancelled.
The county’s 14-and-under boys basketball league post-poned its games today, which were supposed to happen at Kaua‘i High School’s gym.
The Hawaiian Surfing Federation (HSF), Kaua‘i division post-poned its meets this weekend until March 25 at Kealia Beach. The only event still going on today is the Kaua‘i Collegiate Cup, with final round action teeing off at the Princeville Makai Golf Course at 8 a.m.
