IPA Sophomore Competes at the HHSAA State Bowling Championships

Kristin Chun ’22 has a promising future in bowling. On November 7-8, 2019, Chun competed against the best bowlers in the state of Hawai’i at the HHSAA State Championships at the Kaua’i Bowling Center. Chun, only a sophomore, finished 14th in the Interscholastic League of Honolulu (ILH), with an overall average of 143.61 for the 2019-2020 season. She finished her final game of the ILH season with her highest score, rolling a 220, and bowled in all 36 games of the 12-week season.

Chun represented ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY, and the ILH, at the state championship on Kaua’i, accompanied by her coaches, Karen and Denton Chun, who also happen to be her parents. This was her second showing at the HHSAA level, and she is carrying on the Chun family bowling tradition as her sister, Brandi ’18, was a four-year qualifier for IPA in bowling as well.

Head Coach, Denton Chun, was honored last year as one of the KSSK Coach of the Week recipients. The award was presented by radio personality Michael W. Perry as part of the live radio show at Jade Dynasty in Ala Moana.
