Congratulations to Kohala’s freshman Gabriella Boyle who brought home the bronze medal in the 400 meter dash this past Saturday, May 3, 2014 at the BIIF track and field championships. Boyle is the only freshman on the island to place in an individual running event that day. She ran track in middle school so she is familiar with the 400m race.

Gabriella Boyle and junior Josiah Adams qualified for finals in their events after competing in the prelims on Friday, May 2, 2014. Adams ran the 1,500 meter run with a qualifying time of 4:41.65. And Boyle ran the 400 meter dash finishing first on Friday with her qualifying time of 1:02.44.

On finals day Boyle ran the 400 meter dash in 1:02.04 bringing her in at 3rd place right behind Hilo’s Kunda Nicholson-Walker and Camelle Martinez. Adams competed in the 1,500 meter run finishing with a time of 4:33.45. Which brought him in at 9th place on the island. On BIIFS day both runners gained new personal and school records.

Congratulations to Gabriella Boyle for placing and winning 3rd place in the track and field BIIF championships! Good luck in the rest of your track career!
