Manner-isms: Concussion, broken pinky, ILH title

By Paul Honda on November 1, 2016

(Here is more about Kamalanimaile Manner, the first-year varsity bowler from Hanalani who won the Interscholastic League of Honolulu championship last week as a sophomore. The feature story was published in Tuesday’s Honolulu Star-Advertiser.) It’s not often that a first-year high school bowler wins the ILH title, especially after not qualifying for states all season. Kamalanimaile Manner rolled 189-189-202 for a 580 total last week, easily besting competition among the girls and boys. The most unusual thing is this: she rates bowling behind six other sports and activities she likes to do. She just happens to be a queenpin who will be one of the contenders at the HHSAA State Championships on Thursday at Leeward Bowl. How novel is this: […]

Court dismisses bowler’s lawsuit against ILH

By Nick Abramo on January 4, 2016

A lawsuit filed by the family of bowler Anastasia Saili against the Interscholastic League of Honolulu has been dismissed by U.S. District Court Judge J. Michael Seabright. Saili, a senior at Sacred Hearts, unsuccessfully tried to regain her eligibility for the bowling season last fall. The suit also asked for punitive damages of “not less than five million dollars” from the ILH. Don Botelho, the league’s former executive director, and Georges Gilbert, his assistant, were named as defendants. Saili, who won the ILH championship as a junior at Punahou, was deemed ineligible by the league due to a transfer rule. Saili’s family was trying to prove that she switched schools not for competitive reasons (which is the main reason the […]

Iolani boys grab ILH bowling title

By Jerry Campany on October 21, 2015

Iolani’s volleyball team is not the only squad on campus looking to return to prominence. The boys bowling team beat Punahou 2-1 this week to secure its place in states, a rare occurrence indeed. Kennan Kaneshiro led the way for the Raiders with a 202 game and Austin Okazaki had the high series with a 561. They will join Damien at the Billy Tees State Bowling Championships on Kauai beginning Oct. 29. Iolani is one team that has not found much success over the years, never having an individual state champion or team title. The only time it even contended for a team crown was 2012, when Curt Wong led them to a fifth-place finish. The league is as Hickam […]
