Amatuer surf
champs crowned

Nolan Aglium won the men's open division and Felicia Frazer the women's title yesterday as the Hawaii Amateur Surf Association's Town & Country State Surf Championship concluded at Ala Moana Bowls.

Kauai's David Hubbard was the only one to double up on victories, winning both the junior men and dropknee bodyboard events.

In all, 26 titles were decided with the finalists qualifying for the U.S.S.F. national championships to be held at Ala Moana Bowls next month.

Basketball at La Pietra

High school basketball players will join their college and post-college counterparts in a developmental basketball league for girls and women at La Pietra, Hawaii School for Girls.

Among those signed up to play are former University of Hawaii Wahine players Nani Cockett and BJ Itoman.

Sign-ups begin at 5 p.m. tonight. The program runs through Aug. 2. The cost is $40 per player.

Games are Wednesdays and Saturdays.

For more information, call La Pietra's Bernie Paloma (737-8464).

Ball's Olympic bid fails

At Chula Vista, Calif., Hawaii's Chris Ball failed to make the U.S. Olympic Canoe/Kayak team during yesterday's final round of the U.S. trials.

Ball placed second by less than one second in the men's K-1 1,000 meter event and then was third in the K-2 1,000-meter race.

Hawaii will have two kayakers at the Sydney Games: Peter Newton and Kathy Colin, both of whom qualified this past week.

Kauai leads in team golf

The Kauai Interscholastic Federation had a five-stroke lead going into today's final round of the Hawaii All-Star Invitational golf tournament at Olomana Golf Links.

The KIF team carded a 290, using the three lowest boys' scores and the lowest girl's score. The Big Island Interscolastic Federation was second at 295, followed by the OIA (304), ILH (308) and Maui Interscholastic League (312).

Kometani in winners' circle

Pam Kometani of Honolulu, a former University of Hawaii golfer, won for the first time on the Futures Tour yesterday, firing a 3-under-par 69 for a two-stroke victory in the Greater Lima (Ohio) Open.

Kometani, who pocketed the $8,400 first prize, is the second winner from the isles on this year's Futures Tour.

Christel Tomori of Hilo won at Avon, Conn., last month.
