The ILH’s top teams in boys bowling swept their matches at Hickam Lanes on Wedesday, setting up a showdown between two of the best on Monday.
Hawaii Baptist’s Lane Hosaka rolled a 590 series to help the Eagles sweep Hanalani on Wednesday, their third straight sweep to open the season. Isaiah Lee had a 181 game and 483 series to lead Kamehameha to a 3-0 win over Saint Louis.
Hawaii Baptist, the defending league champion, will take on Kamehameha on Monday. Fellow unbeaten University takes on Mid-Pacific and perfect Damien goes against winless Lanakila Baptist.
Neither team has lost a game this year, with HBA sweeping Iolani, ASSETS and Hanalani and Kamehameha taking care of Hanalani, St. Francis and Saint Louis. Damien is the only other school that has not dropped a game, sweeping ASSETS, Lanakila Baptist and St. Francis.
Logan Takeda is Hawaii Baptist’s anchor, with a high game of 235 and series of 597 thus far, but Lane Hosaka is a strong No. 2. Lee is Kamehameha’s go-to guy, but Pono Riddle and Nikolai Beddow make the Warriors as deep as anyone.
John Ushigome of Punahou has the ILH’s game this year with a 267 last week and Nicholas Lacaden of University has the high series of 649.
Last night’s top scores were a 228 game by Chansen Fukushima of Iolani to knock Mid-Pacific from the ranks of the unbeatens and Hosaka’s 590 series for HBA.
