Dimond, Aljibe claim CIC championships

Dimond's Reniel Aljibe scored 290 out of a possible 300 Saturday to lead the Lynx to the Cook Inlet Conference riflery title at West High.

"He pretty much won everything this year," Dimond coach John Snead said. "He was kind of the star of the riflery world this year."

The team victory capped an undefeated season for the Lynx, who have been undefeated in regular-season matches for four straight seasons.

Aljibe and Nathan Hussong both hit 16 bull's-eyes for Dimond, with Hussong finishing second with a 289. Chelsey Devon fired a 282 and Maddy Friedl shot a 281 to help Dimond claim a 12-point win over West.

The Eagles, last season's CIC tournament champion, were led by Katie Wolski's 287. Lyndea Kelleher (285), Aman LaChapelle (284) and Erin Brayfield (274) completed the scoring.

Aljibe and Hussong were the meet's top two medalists, adding to their totals in the medalist round to finish at 386.8 and 385, respectively.
