One hundred twenty-two boys ran the three mile course at Olinda, Maui.  The boys will travel again to Maui on Oct. 8 for a race at King Kekaulike.

The Molokai Air Riflery team competed in a Postal Shoot last weekend, meaning they shoot on their own here on Molokai and send in their scores to Maui. Head Coach Chinky Hubbard had three boys and seven girls shooting this week.

For the boys, Jershon Kaalekahi came in third, Kaohele Kaiama was tied for fifth and Edwin Greenleaf came in 16th. Forty-nine boys participated in the shoot county-wide and the Molokai Boys came in sixth as a team.

The Girls also placed sixth as a team. Sonja Angst led in eighth place, Journey Miguel tied for 16th, Campbell Kaalekahi tied for 25th, Fera Davis in 35th, Maria Angst tied for 38th, Melody Kaili-Kalua in 50th, Pa’a’aina Kee in 53rd place and Shaia-Ann English in 58th. Sixty-two girls participated in the competition.
