Lana Calibuso-Kwee fired a 38 to take medalist honors and lead the Baldwin High School girls golf team to a 131-152 victory over Lahainaluna on Saturday afternoon at Kahili Golf Course.

Alexa Jackson had a 43 and Sienna Kawahara added a 50 as the Bears improved to 4-0-0 in Maui Interscholastic League play. Danica Galindo’s 56 was dropped.

Baldwin is guaranteed at least a spot in a possible 18-hole playoff for the team championship — they can clinch the title outright as early as Tuesday with a win over Seabury Hall or a loss by Maui High to Lahainaluna.

The Lunas (0-3-1) were led by Hannah Valencia’s 46. Ashley Langaman shot a 50 and Alana Duran had a 56.

Emily Mitra had a 41 and Jillian Ped carded a 45 for Maui High (2-2-0).

Seabury Hall (1-2-1) got a 40 from Joy Callinan and a 47 from Kelsie Sparks, and also had to take a dummy-score 72.

Kyle Sparks shot 40, Max Flammer had a 41 and Pierce Dowd’s 42 was the dropped score for Seabury Hall (8-0), which clinched at least a tie for the MIL team crown. The Spartans play Maui High twice this week, and the Sabers must sweep to force an 18-hole playoff for the team title.

Beau Johnston and Hudson Holland each shot 38s for Na Pueo (5-3), while Griffin Gibson had a 50 and Akiva Bluh shot 53. Jerone Samari’s 60 was the dropped score for Maui Prep.

MAUI HIGH BOYS 184, KAMEHAMEHA MAUI 188

At The Dunes at Maui Lani, Jordan Terada fired a 41 to help the Sabers (6-2) keep their team title hopes alive. Kaleb Makimoto had a 43, Asher Apili added a 44 and Noah Manual a 56 for Maui High.

Dane Abarra shot 43, Jordan Mitsumura had a 45, Puniawa Vedder fired 48 and Kody Cambra carded a 52 for Kamehameha Maui (3-5). Marcus Ayau’s 68 was the dropped score for the Warriors.

LAHAINALUNA BOYS 176, KING KEKAULIKE 229

At the Kaanapali Kai Course, Jensen Powley fired a 39 to lead the Lunas (2-6) past Na Alii (0-8).

Matt Ramelb had a 43, Jonas Marcial shot 45 and Kaito Nishiji had a 49 for Lahainaluna.
