WAILUKU — Brianne Reformina felt right at home.

Reformina bowled her best game of the season Saturday, helping undefeated Kameha­meha Schools Maui sweep Kihei Charter 3-0 at Maui Bowling Center and clinch a second consecutive Maui Interscholastic League girls title.

“I felt really good,” Reformina said. “I don’t know why. I guess because I knew if we won we’d be MIL champs.”

The senior co-captain had a 166 as the Warriors improved to 18-0.

Kamehameha’s Nadia Apo-Takayama had games of 166, 159 and 147. Healani Tolentino had a 149 and a 146.

“My girls, I could not be more proud of them,” said Warriors coach Rodney Carillo. “From the beginning of the season I knew. They’re hard workers … and they don’t like to lose.”

Reformina said she has been coming to the alley since she was 4 years old.

“When I was 10, my dad would bring me to actually bowl and I ended up loving it,” she said. “I lived in this bowling alley. This is my home.”

The state tournament will take place Oct. 26-27 on Kauai.

“We were like second to last last year so we want to improve on that,” said the Warriors’ Ashley Taylor Peralta.

Victoria Fonville had games of 136 and 127 for the Tiger Sharks (2-19).

Kamehameha won the boys match 3-0 and improved to 15-3, widening its lead atop the standings.

Li Furukawa had the high game of the match, a 199, for the Warriors, along with a 169. Josiah Kaluau-Shimada had scores of 185 and 171, and Aisake Fakawa had a 176.

Jayden Uyeno had a 115 for Kihei Charter (0-21).

Baldwin’s boys team won 2-1 over Maui High.

Kainalu Torres-Estores had a 168 for the Bears (13-5), Kyle Fuchikami had a 134 and Christopher Keanini-Higa had a 150. Isaiah Chee had a 148 for the Sabers (7-14), and R.J. Salacup had a 131.
