Island School athletic director Kirk Correa thought it would be a good idea for a “mini track meet” prior to the start of the county’s age group meets which start this weekend.
Collaborating with leaders at St. Catherine, Kula, St. Theresa and Olelo, Correa got Island School staff and volunteers from the different schools to help officiate the meet that offered 33 events for students in kindergarten through grade 8.
Of the 33 events, Island School commanded the event with first finishes in 19 of the 33 events.
St. Catherine athletes followed with seven first finishes. Kula School had three first finishes with St. Theresa and Olelo finishing with two first finishes each.
Correa said the meet was a good one, although he said St. Theresa had a lot of their parents and athletes participating in the school carnival that same weekend.
Two of Kula School’s first finishes came in the Gr. 3-4 division when A.J. Ort ran the Boys 50-meter in 8.5 followed by Kaihalana Lacey doing the Girls 50-meter in 8.8.
Ort picked up Kula’s third first finish in the Boys broad jump with a 6’0” leap.
Dallas Correa topped the Boys (7-8) Softball throw at 204 feet, but not before battling with St. Catherine athlete Calvin Rux in the Boys 200-Meter Run where Rux topped the Island Schooler 29.7 to Correa’s 29.8 run.
That battle continued in the Boys 100-meter run where Rux was .1 second better than Correa at 11.8 to 11.9.
Chrystal Kyle got one of Olelo’s first finish in the Girls (3-4) broad jump where she topped Island School’s Reese Corry by an inch at 5’3.”
Jayden Fu picked up one of St. Theresa’s first finishes in the Boys (3-4) Softball throw with a toss of 69 feet. Fu also finished second in the Boys 50-meter run at 9.1.
