Congratulations to the 13 qualifiers who represented Mid-Pacific at the ILH Precision Air Riflery Individual Championship Saturday, February 29.
The athletes overcame poor range conditions and had the most successful precision individual championship the school has ever seen, according to Coach Jon Narimatsu.
"This was a record-setting championship for many reasons, but the most significant was Mid-Pacific crowning its first ILH Precision Individual Champion after 13 seasons of participating in the league," Narimatsu said. "Congratulations again and thank you to all the participants, coaches, and parents who made this season possible."
Kimberly Oshiro captured the gold medal (first place overall), Morgan Igno the silver medal (second place overall) and Michael Tam and Brandon Lum each earned a bronze medal (fourth and seventh place overall, respectively). In the JV match, both Mindy Higa and Asia Nunez earned a bronze medal (third and seventh place overall, respectively).
Thirteen qualifiers, six finalists, six medals and the varsity individual champion are all firsts for the precision program, according to Narimatsu.
Oshiro also won the ILH Girls' Sporter Individual Championship back in October, giving her Mid-Pacific's first sweep of the two ILH air riflery championships.
"The Mid-Pacific Precision Air Riflery team had their most successful season ever, and we could not be more thrilled and happy for the players and coaches," said Athletic Director Scott Wagner. "Although the team suffered a head-to-head loss during the regular season, they rebounded to take first, second, and fourth place in the ILH Individual Championships. For the first time ever we have an ILH Individual Champion. Congratulations to Kimberly Oshiro! We are incredibly proud of the entire team for their accomplishments. Let's go Owls!"
