OIA softball tournament opens today

High school standings

Advertiser Staff

Champions and state tournament representatives will be determined this week in almost every high school softball league.

Twelve teams are competing for five state berths in the Oahu Interscholastic Association Championship tournament, which starts today on four fields. The championship game is scheduled for Saturday at about noon at Hawaii Pacific-Windward in Kaneohe.

Mililani (9-0) has won 37 straight OIA regular-season and tournament games and is seeking its third consecutive league championship.

The Trojans have several starters from the team that lost to Iolani, 1-0, in last year’s state final. They earned a free pass through today’s games.

Kamehameha (11-1) can clinch a tie for the Interscholastic League of Honolulu title tomorrow by beating third-place Punahou at home. The Warriors have already locked up a state berth and two-time defending state champ Iolani (10-2) needs one more victory to claim the league’s second state spot.

On Maui, Baldwin (10-0) needs to win one of two games against Lahainaluna (9-1) to take the championship, and both are going to the state tournament.

Shannon Tabion, Baldwin’s all-state pitcher, struck out 17 of the 22 batters she faced in a 4-0, no-hit victory over Maui on Friday.

Hilo (7-0) won the Big Island regular-season title and a state tournament spot and a six-team tournament starts tomorrow to determine the other state tourney team and the overall champion.

Waimea (4-0) has once again clinched Kauai’s championship and state berth.
