In the Division II championship match, Hawaii Prep defeated Saint Louis 2-1 in overtime. The most outstanding player was HPA’s Braden Kojima. He was joined on the all-tournament team by teammates Toby Balaam, Kama Kahoe-Morrison, Sihkea Jim, Austin Schneider, Jake Schneider and Noah Wise; Saint Louis’ Noah Alejado, Mitchell Quinn, Rick Sandry Jr. and Markus Foehr; Kailua’s Ripley Quebral and Kamehameha Hawaii’s Tyler Waltjen.
Wickersheim aces No. 14 at Maui Nui
Playing in the same foursome that a week earlier had a different player record an ace at the same hole, Ryan Wickersheim of Haiku had a hole-in-one at No. 14 at Maui Nui Golf Club in Kihei on Friday.
Wickersheim’s 140-yard shot was with an 8-iron. The witnesses were Jack Walker of Wailea, who had accomplished the feat on Feb. 3, as well as Stanley Lawson and Ted Whang.
