She finished second to teammate Nani Yanagi at the season opening event at Waimea Country Club on March 6th.

On the boys side, Chad Suzuki shot a 37 on the back nine to take a one stroke edge over Hilo High’s Davin Yagi, shooting a 77 (+5) to win. Hawaii Prep’s Andrew Paisley followed with an 80 (+8). Suzuki won for the second time this year, winning the season opener at Waimea Country Club by two strokes. He also finished third to Kealakehe’s Steve Kim at the Hilo Municipal Golf Course, falling short by two strokes.

For the third time, Waiakea (243) won the girls team score over Hilo High (315), with the Waiakea (337) boys did the same by ten strokes over Hilo (347).
