Braeden Robley leads Raider boys’ win in Puakea wind

Kaua‘i’s Taylor Viquelia fired a one-under par 35 on the back nine of the Puakea Golf Course to finish with a one-over par 73 on Saturday in gusty winds to lead the Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation golfers.

Daeza Tomas (37-45-82) and Janae Park (52-48-100) rounded out the girls’ team scoring of 255 as the only girls team in the league.

Sabrina Barrier, firing a 108 (57-51), was the Kaua‘i girls’ individualist, joining Na‘ea Oda (40-41-81) and Meleane Moala (60-51-111) of Kapa‘a and Mariah Paiste (44-44-88) of Waimea.

Braeden Robley, finishing the front nine at even par, fell to two-over on the back nine, finishing at 74 to lead the Kaua‘i boys’ team to an 18-stroke win, 316-334, over Kapa‘a.

This was an important win following Kapa‘a taking Kaua‘i last week with just one more match, Saturday’s make-up round at Wailua Golf Course, before the 36-hole qualifying rounds leading to the state tournament.

Pono Tokioka, Kaua‘i’s No. 1 golfer, fell to the second spot Saturday, three strokes behind Robley at 77 (38-39). Kaua‘i’s No. 4 golfer Reyn Morioka finished third at 81 (42-39), and the Raiders’ No. 2 golfer Jamie Amimoto ended with 84 (39-45). Kai Adachi, the fifth golfer, ended with a 92 (42-50).

Other individualists included Vance Tokita (44-46-90), Jeremy Felizardo (56-56-112) and Jordan Serrano (57-54-111).

Kenji Miyata, Kapa‘a’s No. 1 golfer on the boys’ team, led the Warrior scoring two strokes behind Tokioka at 79 (40-39), both golfers pacing each other throughout the season.

Warrior No. 2 Bryden Salvador (39-44-83), Jordan Guerrero (45-39-84) and Kawika Wellington (43-45-88) made up the Kapa‘a 334 scoring.

Other Warrior individualists on the field included Anthony Aiwohi (53-53-106), Mitchell Alves (47-49-96), Landen Ishida (51-53-104) and Tyler Anthony (69-56-125).

Island School No. 3 golfer Adam Sciafani set the pace for the Voyagers’ team (392) with a 96 (46-50) followed a stroke back by its No. 2 golfer Daniel Miller (56-41-97).

Michael Miller, the Voyagers’ No. 1 golfer, finished third at 99 (51-48), followed by Jacob Dysinger at 100 (51-49) for the team scoring.

At noon Saturday, the KIF hosts its make-up game for a previously rained-out game at the Wailua Golf Course.

Following that, it hosts the 36-hole qualifying round on April 20 and April 21, with golfers tee-ing off at 11:30 a.m. on both days.
