Happy Camper

Kellen Aquino, who hit two of Lihu‘e 1’s three hits in Sunday’s Kaua‘i Pony baseball championship, doesn’t just play baseball — he was part of the Lihu‘e 13 and Under team that took the floor against Papalina, Monday night in the 3 G’s Nation league, and Arthur Brun was there to check out some of that action as well.

Brandon Palacio, centerfielder for the runner-up Hanapepe Cubs, came to check out his sister Nicole’s performance in the Kaulupono White 13 and Under girls game.

But it should have been a Waimea Canyon Middle School reunion as Vakeesha Lagazo and Cheyanne Duarte were helping coaches Bobby Kamakele and Pedro Saligumba, and on the Westside team, Christian Garma was getting encouragement from Ariel Lahip whose brother Preston was also a whiteshirt.

But before all that happened, Leah Scovel called to say that her daughter Red was playing against Kapa‘a in the Junior Olympic 10 and Under softball game.

Red was a manager for the Kaua‘i High School softball team, so it was natural that coach Darrell and Kris Borrero came over to watch the game after the 14 and Under practice, and Naja Pungan came to watch her younger sister take the field as well.

Jocelyn Awong was doing some juggling to get one of two Kapa‘a teams on the field, and when the games got underway, it was definitely a nice way to end the day.

Now, does anyone know when the next game is?
