Pearl City’s Morishige on the move

Pearl City bowler Chelsi Morishige rolled a 255 game at Schofield Lanes on Thursday, just three pins short of the high game for the season by a girl on Oahu.

Morishige is still looking up at Danielle August of Mililani, who opened the season with a 258, but Morishige has threatened that mark twice already. Morishige also rolled a 255 in week 3.

August was second on the list in Thursday’s action with a 239.

Morishige is also second on the list for high series of the year with her 674 on Thursday, trailing only her 694 in week 3. Only two girls have had a series higher than 630 this year, with Morishige doing it three times and teammate Kristin Frost doing it once with a 633 in week 1.

Morishige’s effort allowed Pearl City to knock down 2,985 pins on Thursday, beating Mililani’s 2,415.

Castle knocked down the most pins in the East this week with 2,051 to beat Roosevelt’s 1,950. Jennifer Lee of Castle paced all bowlers with a 205 game, narrowly beating the 204 by Kaimuki’s Kasey Ige.

Lee’s 538 series was also high for the day, beating Ige’s 522.

Azumi comes close for Chargers

Nicholas Azumi bowled a 288 game on Thursday, just two pins shy of being able to boast of Oahu’s low game of the season.

Austin Finster of Leilehua still holds that mark with his 290 in week 3 and Azumi is also looking up at teammate Ryan Kajihiro’s 289 that same week.

Nobody came close to threatening Kajihiro’s 739 series, with Azumi rolling a 673 for the day’s best. Mililani’s Tazman Shim was second with a 265 game and 673 series.

Pearl City walked off the base with the most pins knocked down yet again, toppling 3,063 to Aiea’s 2,832.

Castle’s boys ruled the East with 2,397 pins knocked down on Thursday, beating McKinley’s 2,369.

No individual scores were reported for the Knights, so Jansen Richards Jr. of Kailua had the high game of 213 to beat Keenan Nakagawa of Kalani’s 206.

Nakagawa had the low series with a 570 to beat Jon Kanno of McKinley’s 551.

    Thanks for letting me know, Tony. The league didn’t put Kylie down as a 257 but I will ask them. I am sure it is all about the team for the kids, but the way I do this is to find the best score each week and write a few paragraphs about them so that I know a little something for when league/states roll around.
