Treysen Barretto finished 7th of the 15 KJSC participants at the AMA Supercross in San Francisco recently.
Barretto worked the course despite having practice sessions reduced to one due to chilly Northern California weather.
He was also involved in the autograph session where thousands of race fans were able to secure autographs of some of the top riders in the nation prior to the Supercross event.
The finals of the KTM Juniors involved three of their fastest laps, and Barretto lost little time establishing his position in third off the gate.
He held that position for about a third of the opening lap, but was relegated to an eventual seventh place by more experienced riders.
Grady gives Heat the point edge
Kekai Gonsalves and Cortney Higa managed a bucket each and Jenna Iwasaki netted a digit.
But the effort failed as Kristle Henry scored a dozen points to lead Gee’s Angels to a 53-5 flight over Wailua in 12 and Under girls basketball Wednesday.
Lauren Claypoole finished with 10 points and Reggie McCabe added 8 points in the Game 1 victory.
In Game 2, Vakeesha Lagazo continued her firing streak with a game-high 22 points in Kaulupono’s 37-14 win over the Lihu‘e Kamakazes. Krista Kali and Kaelyn Kamakele-Aquino added 6 and 3 points, respectively.
Lacey Lucas led the Lihu‘e effort with 7 points, followed by Siarah Perreira’s 4 points and Kawehi Louis-Diamond rounding out the leaders at 3 points.
Jennifer Grady may not have been the leading scorer, but was able to lead Island Heat to a 25-24 edge over Ha‘aheo in Game 3.
Taylor Garcia added 7 points for the Heat.
Makana Fujimoto topped the game scoring with 10 points for Ha‘aheo while Caitlyn Rapozo and Malu Vegas each contributed 4.
