LIHUE — Waimea High School and Kauai High School air rifle teams claimed the second week of the Kauai Interscholastic Federation air riflery season with solid shooting at the Island School range, and the Kauai High School gym.

Norie Mae Ramirez, firing 93 points in the prone position, 81 points in standing, and 86 points in the kneeling position, topped the Menehune ladies with 260 points toward the Waimea girls’ 1,218 to 882 points victory over the Island School ladies whose 240 points from Bonnie Lee (86-81-73) led the Voyager effort.

On the boys’ range, Waimea outscored Island School 1,224 to 1,159 points led by Shannon Caoagdan (86-85-85) who piled up 256 points.

Island School’s Ka‘okina Ranis (91-76-80) topped the Voyager effort on 247 points, the effort out-pointing Caoagdan by five points in the prone position.

At the Kauai High School gym where the Red Raiders were in the midst of homecoming celebration, technical problems delayed the week’s results that showed its lady sharpshooters outdistancing the Kapaa girls, 1,082 points to the Warrior wahine’s 1,048 points — just 31 points separating the two groups.

Red Raider Kierstyn Bukoski claimed the girls’ highest point honor for the week with her 263 (91-83-89) points, surging past Waimea’s Ramirez by a mere three points. Kapaa’s Keana Dolino (80-70-78-228) did the honors for the Warrior wahine.

Kauai’s Kalen Konishi finished with a 267 (92-82-93) point-total to lead the Kauai boys to a 1,230 to 1,016 win over the Kapaa men, claiming the week’s high point honor for the boys. Keio Wakuta led the Warrior men with a 229 (87-68-74).

Kauai next hosts Waimea, Wednesday at the Kauai High School gym where the first rounds are fired at 5 p.m. Kapaa High School will host the Voyagers with a 4:30 p.m. start time.
