Louis-Diamond snags sole state track auto time

LIHU‘E — One state time for the girls, a host of consideration standards and a pair of consideration standards for the boys emerged from the wind which buffeted the Vidinha Stadium track Thursday night.

Kawehi Louis-Diamond of Kaua‘i High School earlier set a state auto standard in the girls’ 100-meter hurdles, and Thursday topped the field with a 16.27 run, well above the state standard 16.64.

The following three runners, two from Kapa‘a High School and one from Waimea High School, all landed consideration standards in the event: Rachael Hinkel stopping the clock at 16.77, solid against the consideration standard of 17.64; Kawena Warren of Waimea stopped the clock at 16.79 for third place, and Sierra Riemer of Kapa‘a nailed a 17.72 run for fourth place.

Hinkel took top honors in the girls’ 300-meter hurdles, stopping the clock on a 50.44 run for a consideration standard (51.94).

Kaua‘i’s Chelsie Domingo just scraped past the consideration standard (13.24) in the girls’ 100-meter dash, stopping the clock at 13.23 for a first finish and getting the consideration by just a second.

Kristle Henry of Kaua‘i High School was the only girl taking away a consideration standard in the field events. Henry leaped for 15-05.75 to better the consideration standard of 15-04.00 for the event.

Kapa‘a High School’s boys were the only ones getting any state standards, with two boys snaring standards in field events.

Joshua Cram, known for his prowess on the soccer field and currently the setter for the boys volleyball team, leaped 5-08.00 to capture the consideration standard (5-08) in the boys’ high jump, while Tumua Masaniai put the shot at 42-09.50 to better the consideration standard of 41-08.25.

On the track, Waimea’s Russell Aceret captured the boys’ 100-meter dash with an 11.70 run, but fell short of the state consideration 11.44.

Kaua‘i’s Mason Manera topped the 200-meter dash on a 23.92, also falling short of the consideration (23.44). His 54.49 4400-meter dash was also just a whisker short of consideration (53.34).

Waimea’s Cullen Gutierrez topped the boys’ 300-meter hurdles on a 44.70 run, coming up short on the consideration 44.04.

The Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation qualifying track meet series continues at 4:30 p.m. Thursday  at Vidinha Stadium.
