With three strong bowlers in front, the Warrior men took first with a 2,320 pinfall over Kaua‘i’s 2,196 showing. Waimea finished third at 2,111, with Island School totalling 961 with just three bowlers.
Kathleen Cadiente rolled a 201 in Game 2 to lead Kaua‘i to its second first finish with a 2,070 pinfall, closely pursued by the Menehune, who finished with a 2,029 total. That was an improvement of 5 pins over last week, when Waimea took first over Kaua‘i.
Kapa‘a finished third with an 1,804 pinfall led by Mindi Agena who finished with a 171 average over three games, including a 200 in Game 3. There were no girl bowlers from Island School participating in the matches.
