KIF golf heads north on Saturday

After a trip down south in Po’ipu last Saturday, the KIF golf season moves north to Princeville for its second match of the year.

The Princeville Makai Golf Course will play host to Saturday’s contest, which begins at 11 a.m. In the first event, Kaua’i dominated in both the girls and boys matches.

Senior Chad Nonaka led the way with a 1-under-par 71 and teammate Miki Ueoka paced the girls race with a 4-over-par 76.

Kaua’i and Kapa’a are the only schools competing in the girls’ standings. That’s because both squads field enough girls to compete for the title.

Kaua’i held a 47 stroke lead over Waimea in the boys race and a 108 stroke lead over the Warrior girls, last week. Waimea’s Noel Torres, Ryan Gusman, and Markland Soliva were the top scorers for the westsiders. Meanwhile, Travis Toguchi, Bronzen Winters, and Jet Levinthol paced Kapa’a.

Kula’s Cyrus Ogawa posted a respectable score.

Top scorers for the Red Raiders included Nikko Tacsiat, Wiley Yoshioka, and Kellen Watabu. For the girls, Rae-Lyn Morikawa and Kristi Rapozo of Kaua’i came through in the clutch, with Kapa’a’s Malia Saiki, Cheyene Barreto, and Kristin Jim holding down the fort for the Warriors.

KIF golf takes a break on April 1, but resumes play on April 8 at Puakea Golf Course (12:08 p.m.).
