Azumi’s still got it

Azumi, who finished third at states last year, rolled a 691 series to lead the Chargers to their second straight win. Pearl City knocked down 3,199 pins to put Aiea in second place for the second week in a row. Na Alii scored 2,838 and Kapolei came in third with 2,743. The Hurricanes improved on their fourth-place finish the previous week by beating Campbell.

Pearl City won on the girls side, too, scoring 2,688 after toppling 2,689 pins last week. Kapolei was second with 2,344 and Mililani was third at 2,321.
