Second round of KIF hoops starts Tuesday

Kapa’a opens up the second round of KIF girls basketball against the Menehune in Waimea (1-3).

The Warriors (4-0), who are the first round champions, have yet to lose this season.

In the meantime, the Menehune, who were blown out by Kaua’i in the first round finale, 53-39, need to start off the second round with a bang.

Kapa’a’s balanced attack has proved to be a tough combination to solve for both the Red Raiders and the Menehune.

Waimea’s top shooters, Moani Durant and Natalie Mata have to make crucial shots if the Menehune are to challenge Kapa’a on Tuesday.

Kapa’a’s Kennilyn Nakamura and April Johnson key the back court and in the middle, both Poe Gantt and Brittney Carvalho have dominated in first round of play.

In the junior varsity ranks, the Warriors are also 4-0 and open up against the Menehune, who are 2-2 so far this season.

The Red Raider JV squad is still winless this year at 0-4.

On Friday, Kaua’i (1-3) battles the Warriors at the Bernice Hundley Gymnasium.

JV action begins at 5:30 p.m., with varsity play starting 20 minutes after the completion of the JV game.
