Wie Struggles on Day 3 of Bell Micro LPGA Classic in Mobile, Ala

Michelle Wie

Wie shoots 76, falls to bottom of leader board at Bell Micro LPGA Classic

   Hawaii’s own heart throb on the golf links, Michelle Wie, struggled to a 4-over par 76 today and was at the bottom of the leader board in the third round of the Bell Micro LPGA Classic in Mobile, Ala.

   Wie, a Punahou alum and Stanford student, was at 5-over 221 and tied for last (72nd) when she finished today. Leader Se Ri Pak, who was at 9-under 135 after the second round, was to tee off later in the day.

   Wie got off to a rocky start today with three bogeys and a double-bogey on the front nine to make the turn at 5 over. She had another bogey on the par-4 No. 10 to go to 6 over before getting consecutive birdies on the par-4 No. 15 and par-5 No. 16.

   Despite her poor showing Wie still commands a large gallery of fans that follow her on every hole.

   The final round is tomorrow at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Magnolia Grove and I bet Michelle will have a good final round.

BIIF Track & Field Stars Advance to Finals of HHSAA Championships

State Championships held at Kamehameha-Kapalama

Big Island Interscholastic Federation track & field athletes left their mark at the Hawaii High School Athletic Association preliminaries held at Kamehameha-Oahu on Friday.

  BIIF athletes made the championship finals, to be held Saturday, in 22 different events as the top eight competitors in each event advanced.

  Kau’s Jacob Edwards demonstrated why he is the state champion in both the 110 and 300 hurdles by taking both events in convincing fashion.   KS-Hawaii standout Francis Blas III will be joining Edwards in the finals of the 110 (No. 4) and 300 (No. 3) with Warrior teammate Everett McKee also making the 300 (No. 6) hurdles event.

  In the triple jump Edwards made the furthest distance and will be seeded No. 1 going into the finals along with KS-Hawaii’s Manta Dirks seeded No. 7.

  Edwards also made the finals of the long jump (No. 6) and is joined by KS-Hawaii jumpers Kaenan Akau (No. 4) and Dirks (No. 5).

Hawaii Repertory’s Ku’uipo Nakoa had the second fastest prelim time in the 100 and 300 meter hurdles and in the second best long jump distance, with Kahuku’s Zhane Santiago edging Nakoa out in each of those events during day one of the championships.

   Nakoa also advanced in the triple jump, but was not too pleased with her overall placement.  “I’m a little frustrated in the triple,” she said.  “My 300 was a little off too as I was concentrating so much on not messing up the fourth hurdle that I missed a step and went off stride.”

Shane Brostek

   HPA big man, Shane Brostek, qualified for Saturday in the shot put (No. 3) along with Kamehameha’s David Kekuewa (#8).   Brostek also made it into the finals of the discus (No. 7).

  For the girls it was Kamehameha’s Kaopua Sutton’s impressive discus throw of 134’ 4” that gives her the No. 1 seed going into the finals. 

  In the boys 800 Keaau’s Daniel Brooks opened with the second fastest time while the girls saw Waiakea’s Kaitlyn Chock qualify (#8) with her fastest time of the season.

   It was a tough day for BIIF athletes in the 100 and 200 meter dashes as league champion, Kana Silva, was disqualified in the 100, but came back to place #3 in the 200.  The lone BIIF girl in the sprint finals will be Waiakea’s Teisha Nacis (No. 7) in the 100.

  Waiakea’s Ka’imi Scott had a good showing in the 400 dash (No. 2) for the boys while Keaau’s Randi Estrada (#7) for the girls made finals.

   “It was really windy today,” Scott said.  “I short of laid up on my 400 in the last 50 meters, so I think I can go under 50 seconds during the finals tomorrow.”

Randi Estrada

Estrada finished the third in the state last year as a freshman and is hoping to do the same again this year.  “I know I need to run faster in the finals and I really like to get back to finishing in the top three,” she said.

   In the distance races it was Honokaa’s Athena Oldfather #5 and HPA’s Kela Vargas (#6) making finals in the 1500 meter run for the girls with Honokaa’s Chayse Moniz (#8) for the boys.

   Distance hopeful, Honokaa’s Chris Mosch, scratched from the 3000 meter run with a stress fracture in his foot.  The Dragon junior had the second fastest time in the state going into the prelims, but was forced to withdraw.

Ericka Cushnie

   Not all was rosy for BIIF relay teams as no island school made it into the finals of the 4×100 while the Keaau girls were eighth and Waiakea boys (No. 8 ) got in for the 4×400.

  The girl’s high jump and boy’s pole vault were the only two events that held their finals on Friday as Waiakea’s Ericka Cushnie earned the BIIF’s first medal by taking second in the high jump, clearing 5’ 2”.  Defending state champion in the high jump, HPA’s Mindy Campbell, managed to clear 5 feet and took home the sixth place medal.

   The HHSAA championship finals will conclude today with 32 events with medals being award to the top 6 in each event.
