'Iolani's Tokoro may miss Punahou game
Monica Tokoro, leading scorer in Interscholastic League of Honolulu girls basketball, is hobbling on a sprained ankle and will not play tonight when the Raiders (6-3) play host to Punahou (9-0) at 6:30 p.m.
Tokoro was averaging 18.3 points per game when she sprained her left ankle in the first quarter of a 43-33 loss to Kamehameha last Saturday. She hasn't played since and, although she was walking without crutches yesterday, it is almost certain she will not play tonight, 'Iolani athletic director Carl Schroers said.
The ILH yesterday announced the schedule for the second phase of its Division II season.
The teams with the five best won-lost records after the round-robin phase completed last week will play another round-robin among themselves. The other six teams will play a single-elimination tournament.
Standings in Tuesday's Advertiser incorrectly listed 'Iolani as qualifying for the second round-robin. Punahou qualified, not 'Iolani.
National tryouts: Seven O'ahu teenagers have been chosen to try out for the USA Water Polo Youth National Team. They are (with school and year in school):
Girls Meagan Fawcett (Punahou 11), Katy Flanagan (Punahou 11), Darcy Scott-Hosaka (Roosevelt 12), Daya Mau (Punahou 11), Annie Richardson (Punahou 11).
Boys Damon Jones ('Iolani 9), Chris Nary (Kamehameha 12), C.J. Smith (Punahou 10).
Richardson was co-Player of the Year in the Interscholastic League of Honolulu last season and is a state champion swimmer. Fawcett is a goalkeeper; the others are field players.
The seven will play on Pacific Northwest Zone teams, made up of elite players from Washington, Oregon and Hawai'i, in national team tryouts boys at Fort Lauderdale, Fla., May 23-28, and girls at Long Beach, Calif., June 22-July 1.
Aukai Ferguson, newly appointed water polo coach at Brigham Young University-Hawai'i, will coach the girls zone team and Mike Claus of Washington will coach the boys.
Massing in Manoa: With more than 500 swimmers and 3,000 entries, the Harry M. Mamizuka Manoa Invitational will have the largest field in its 21-year history this week.
