State golf on
Maui tomorrow

Star-Bulletin staff

Aiea senior Merynn Ito returns to defend her individual girls' title and Waiakea High seeks to sweep the boys' and girls' team competitions for the second consecutive year at tomorrow's David Ishii State High School Golf Championships on Maui.

Due to the state-wide public schools teachers' strike, the tournaments were cut from two days to one day. Both rounds are tomorrow, with the first-round tee times starting at 9 a.m. and the final round starting at 1 p.m.

The boys' tournament will be played at the Kapalua Village Course with the girls' tournament at the Kaanapali South Course.

Among those in contention for the boys' title are Waiakea's Gabriel Wilson, who finished second last year, and Kamehameha's Christian Akau. Waiakea's top female golfer is Leah Whiting, who tied for second in last year's state tournament.

Waiakea is looking to become the first school to win four straight boys' titles -- it would be their 10th overall -- since the state tournament began in 1966. Punahou won three straight titles between 1995-97.
