Maumau, Bailey on
NFL practice squads

Defensive linemen Viliami Maumau and Troy Bailey, both former St. Louis School players, have been signed to NFL practice squads.

Maumau, waived earlier this week by the Denver Broncos, was signed to the Broncos' practice squad. He spent much of last season in that capacity.

Bailey, let go last weekend by the Washington Redskins, was picked up by the Kansas City Chiefs.

Castillo to defend title on Maui

Michael Castillo will defend his title in the Aloha Section PGA Match Play Championship next week at the Wailea Gold Course on Maui.

Castillo, director of golf at the Poipu Bay Resort Course on Kauai, defeated Kevin Hayashi, 1-up, on the 37th hole last year at Wailea.

As the automatic top seed, Castillo will join the 31 qualifiers from Sunday's 18-hole stroke play qualifying.

Two rounds are scheduled for Monday, quarterfinals and semifinals Tuesday and the 36-hole finals Wednesday.

Crusaders remain third

The top four spots in the Fox Fab 50 high school football rankings have held preseason form.

St. Louis School, which is averaging 73.7 points a game this season, remains third overall and first in the West Region with a 3-0 record.

Evangel Christian (La.) is No. 1 overall with a 1-0 record after beating John T. Curtis High (La.), which had lost only one other regular season game this decade, 28-20. Robert E. Lee (1-0) of Midland, Texas, is No. 2.

Kualoa Ranch off-road runs

Team Mauka-Makai and the Manoa Road Runners will present two concurrent running events in Kaaawa Valley on Kualoa Ranch Oct. 31 starting at 8 a.m.

Proceeds from the runs will help support academic scholarships at the University of Hawaii.

The four-mile Off-Road Challenge/2 is a gentle trail run suited for runners and walkers of all levels. The eight-mile Ultimate Off-Road Challenge is designed for experienced runners.

For more information, call 239-2800.

Last month, the Manoa Road Runners, a campus-based organization of UH faculty, students and alumni, awarded academic scholarships to Woo Ae Byun, Elizabeth Anne Harrington and Jung Ae Kim.

'Celebrate Duke' event

The Kahanamoku Family Foundation will host the inaugural "Kahanamoku Brothers Celebrate Duke" Ocean Sports Festival at Waikiki Beach on Sept. 25-26.

The competition will include longboard surfing, tandem surfing, paddleboarding and four- and six-man wave riding. There also will be live Hawaiian music and crafts.

Proceeds will benefit the foundation, which intends to perpetuate the work of legendary swimmer/surfer Duke Paoa Kahanamoku and the art of surfing with noncompetitive events and promote the values of health, fitness and water safety.

Entry forms are available at surf shops and Duke's Restaurant Waikiki.
