Rhiannon Morales not fighting tonight
Kaua’i’s Rhiannon Morales will not be fighting tonight against A.J. Jenkins.
In Friday’s MMA article, it was noted that Morales might be battling Jenkins, whose opponent, Mystee Blackwood of Arizona, opted out of the fight due to personal reasons.
Morales was approached by Garden Isle MMA Cage Match No. 3 organizer Vance Pascua to replace Blackwood, but she declined.
“I really appreciate them thinking about me as a replacement, but it was just too little of notice and I’m definitely not ready for any fight,” Morales said.
The women’s kickboxing match that was originally scheduled for both Blackwood and Jenkins, was supposed to be the first-ever women’s kickboxing event on the island.
Golf bags stolen from Waiakea girls squad
10 golf bags were stolen from the rental van of the Waiakea High School girls golf team during a team dinner at Chili’s restaurant in Waikele on Thursday. According to a press release, the team was on O’ahu to prepare for the HHSAA girls golf state championships, which will be held, May 9-10 at Turtle Bay Resort.
Eight of the 10 team members had their bags taken, which included thousands of dollars worth of golf clubs. The other two stolen golf bags belonged to chaperones accompanying the team on the trip.
Waiakea High School athletic director Ken Yamase said that all of the team’s golf bags were embroidered with their names and “Waiakea High Golf.” He fears that the bags will end up in a landfill since thieves will not be able to sell it at the swap meet or other second-hand golf stores.
The team returned to the Big Island yesterday afternoon and if you’d like to help out in any way, contact head coach Ken Watanabe for (808) 960-7865.
