Estacio bests KIF record in discus at 65th Rotary meet

McKenna Estacio tossed the discus for 153-06.5 to break a Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation record Thursday night during the 65th Rotary Track Meet at Vidinha Stadium.

Estacio’s toss broke the 151-10 toss by Keven Marshall Adkisson set in 2011 by almost two feet.

Despite that record-setting throw in the Boys Discus, the Kaua‘i High School boys finished in third place with 102 points below the Kapa‘a boys, who topped the rankings with 179 points, followed by Waimea at 117 points and Island School rounding out the field at 34 points.

The Kaua‘i High School girls 4×100 relay teams A and B finished No. 1 and No. 2, the A team stopping the clock at 50.83 for a state time and the B team coming in second at 53.13, a state consideration run.

Following its Thursday performance at the Rotary meet, the A team participated in the Honolulu Marathon Invitational track meet at Kamehameha Schools-Kapalama on Friday night, improving on its Rotary win with a 50.59 run for one of the fastest times in the state.

Chelsie Domingo, Kawehi Louis-Diamond, Reanna Javinar and Jordan Ganam make up the Red Raider Girls 4×100 Relay A team with Malu Vegas, Jazzy Curtis, Jannin Hashizume and Kristle Henry making up the B team.

Those teams led the Kaua‘i girls to finish tops at the Rotary meet with 170 points, a mere three points ahead of Kapa‘a (167 points). Waimea finished at 69 points, and Island School finished at 16 points.

Joining Estacio in the boys discus ring, Kapa‘a’s Masaniai boys, Unaloto and Tumua, filled in second and third places, respectively, each Masaniai throwing consideration standards.

Unaloto’s second place toss went 131-05, and Tumua ended at 130-05.50 for the consideration.

Tumua also topped the boys shot put by placing the shot at 45-10.50 for another state consideration.

Estacio bested his record-setting 153-06.5 Thursday night toss at the Honolulu Marathon, finishing with a toss of 155-05.00 for fourth place on O‘ahu. The longest throw came from Tasini Pasoni of Baldwin High School on Maui at 173-03.00.

Treston Brede of Kapa‘a High School topped the boys high jump at 5-08.00, equaling the consideration standard in his first finish at the Rotary meet.

Russell Aceret, Destin Miguel, Lopaka Ventura and Cameron Twiggs made up the Waimea Boys 4×100 relay team, which topped the event on a 45.14 run for a state consideration.

Twiggs also earned consideration runs in the boys 100-meter dash (11.20) and the boys 200-meter dash (22.89), both being top finishes.

Kapa‘a’s Michael Alonzo, with his second finish in the boys 200-meter dash, earned a consideration nod on his 23.43 run.

Waimea’s Cullen Gutierrez finished first in the boys 300-meter hurdles at 44.36 for a consideration.

Island School’s Ryan Perez topped the boys 800-meter run with a 2:10.69 for a consideration to round out the boys.

Kaua‘i’s distance runner Joshua Herr was missed at the Thursday meet, but on Friday finished with a 9:30.36 run in the Boys 3,000-meter run, good for a state auto time and fifth place at the O‘ahu meet, the event being taken by Charles Akiona of Kamehameha Schools at 9:16.02. According to Kaua‘i High School coach Peter Riopta, the 9:30.36 is Herr’s personal best for this event.

Henry, of the Red Raiders’ B team in the girls 4×100 relay, also earned a consideration leap of 4-10 in the girls high jump, a goal she set personally two weeks ago.

Javinar, running the third leg of the girls 4×100 relay A team, also leaped for 34-08.00 feet at the O‘ahu meet, the distance earning her sixth place and her best jump of the year.

Henry ran the anchor leg of the girls 4×400 relay to stop the clock at 4:28.45, a state consideration, getting help from Ashley Schnackenberg, Krista Schnackenberg and Jannin Hashizume in the run — beating the Menehune team by almost 10 seconds.

Domingo topped the girls 100-meter on a 12.94 consideration run. Moving to the O‘ahu meet, Domingo slowed to a consideration 13.10 for fifth place. She also finished 10th in the girls 200-meter dash (27.68), missing the consideration nod by a mere .04 second.

The Schnackenberg sisters, Ashley and Krista, both earned consideration nods in the girls 800-meter run, Ashley stopping the clock at 2:35.22 and Krista following at 2:35.44.

Kaua‘i’s hurdler Louis-Diamond did not run the events at the Rotary meet, but on O‘ahu, clocking in at an auto standard 15.56 in the girls 100-meter hurdles, the run good enough for fourth place.

She ran the girls 300-meter hurdles on a consideration 50.25 for 10th place.

Kapa‘a’s Rachael Hinkel, finishing with Louis-Diamond in a photo finish last week, topped the Rotary girls 100-meter hurdles on a state 16.36 run, Hinkle following that with a consideration 49.98 and first place in the girls 300-meter hurdles.

Waimea’s Kawena Warren earned a consideration with her second finish in the girls 100-meter hurdles at 52.48.

The KIF Qualifying Meets continue Thursday, with Meet No. 6 starting at 4:30 p.m. at Vidinha Stadium.
