The stage is set.
Mililani (12-6-0) faces St. Louis (17-6-0) tomorrow night at Les Murakami Stadium for the HHSAA Division I baseball state championship. The Trojans took down the Kailua Surfriders today 4-0 to reach the title game while the Crusaders outlasted the Campbell Sabers in a 3-1 thriller last night at Les Murakami stadium.
The Trojans, led by senior pitcher Trevor Inouye, were in the state title game last year against Mid-Pacific Institute. Coincidentally, Mililani was also unseeded going into that state tournament.
As for the Crusaders, they have not won a baseball state championship since they beat Aiea in 1974. You can expect to see St. Louis draft prospect Jordan Yamamoto on the mound tomorrow for his final high school game in hopes of winning a state title.
On the Division II side, Kamehameha Schools-Hawaii (10-1-1) takes on Maryknoll (17-3-0). Both teams met last year in the state title match with the Spartans overwhelming the Warriors 14-0.
The D2 title game starts at 4 p.m. followed by the D1 title game at 7 p.m.
Both games are played at Les Murakami Stadium.
And HHSAA Executive Director Chris Chun has advice for spectators at the games tomorrow.
