WAILUA — The Kauai Senior Softball League packed another eight exciting games into their season schedule with games in Hanamaulu and Wailua.
LIHUE — It will still be a while before football season starts, but fans can get a small glance of what’s to come this year. Kauai High School will host seven-on-seven scrimmages on July 13 and July 20 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Games will be held on Kauai High’s football practice field behind the gym.
Prior to the start of this season, San Diego Padres pitcher Kirby Yates’ goal was to simply play better than in the previous season. He’s done that and then some.
POIPU — When local volleyball club Ike Loa started a couple of years ago, the goal was to help Kauai’s young talent reach the college ranks, if that was where they wanted to go. A handful of former Kauai Interscholastic Federation players that have also played for the club reached that goal.
HONOLULU — Swim Kauai Aquatics had just three swimmers competing at the Hawaiian Senior Championships on Oahu. “This was a small, but mighty crew of Tyler Tanaka, 15, Kamaira Silva, 14, and Chloe Inouye, 12,” said SKA coach Curt Colby. “Being that you have to be 12 years old to participate, this was Chloe’s first time at this event, and she proved herself determined and ready, as she swam against collegiate swimmers from the University of Hawaii, swimmers from the mainland, as well as Olympic swimmers from the island of Palau, who were coached by former SKA coach Billy Brown.”
Heavy rains in Kapaa on Saturday inundated the softball diamond at the Bryan Baptiste Sports Complex. Three of the four games slated to be played on the field were postponed due to the unplayable conditions of the ballpark. The fourth scheduled game between the Keonimana Gents and Kuku’s Aces was moved to Kaumakani at the Wally Sonoda Field. Games between the East Kauai Legends and Kawaihau, Solid Steel and Da Kruzers, and the Islanders versus the Hanamaulu Hillsiders will be re-scheduled.
Some of Kauai’s young volleyball players were on the mainland and took on clubs from all around the country. Local youth club Ike Loa Volleyball Club competed in the 2019 Volleyball Festival National Championships from June 27 through 30 at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona.
