Kapaa marks at state track

Kapaa High School girls were the only Kauai Interscholastic Federation school to accumulate any points at the Island Movers Hawaii High School Athletic Association track and field championships which wrapped up Saturday at the Kamehameha Schools-Kapalama on Oahu.

The Warrior wahine finished the meet tied for 26th place with Radford and Waialua high schools, both of the Oahu Interscholastic Association, with two points.

The Kapaa boys, although placing in some events, finished out of the points.

Heather Faretta finished in a tie in the girls high jump on a leap of 5 feet, 00 inches, tying with Jasianna Ah Nee (Campbell), Tia Lovell (Punahou), Kristen O’Handley (Kaiser), Ginon Jones (Kaiser), Kellie Okamura (Iolani) and Kiki Megorden (Punahou).

Braden Andrews made his mark for the boys, finishing in 22nd on a run of 9:57.78 in the boys 3,000 meter run, an event taken by Kauai native Kaeo Kruse who set the pace for the Kamehameha-Kapalama boys with his first finish of 9:05.85.
