The Maui News
A second sweep of the season has put the Seabury Hall canoe paddling crews in position to clinch Maui Interscholastic League titles in a couple weeks.
The Spartans won the girls, boys and mixed finals at Maui Interscholastic League regatta No. 3 on Saturday at Kahului Harbor, giving each crew their second wins of the season.
With teams’ best three of five results counting, Seabury can secure the MIL titles as early as Jan. 25 at Kahului Harbor; next week’s meet at Ka Lae Pohaku is an exhibition distance event.
The Seabury girls crew of Keala Bouwens, Kahea Haupu, Annalise Lambert, Kekua Richards, Amber Proctor and Tatum Hoshino won Saturday in 4 minutes, 41.20 seconds, a fraction of a second ahead of King Kekaulike (4:41.73), which won MIL meet No. 2 last month. Molokai finished a distant third in 4:54.07.
Likewise, the boys race was a close race to the finish as the Spartans’ Ga Sum Chang, Kala’i Anderson, Flavio Signoretti, Jake Devane, Caleb Proctor and Ryder Tremble crossed in 4:12.12, just ahead of regatta No. 2 winner Baldwin (4:12.56) and Kamehameha Maui (4:14.45).
Seabury also beat out Baldwin in the mixed final, times for which were not available. Chang, Anderson, Haupu, Lambert, Richards, Tremble comprised the winning crew.
