Muramaru picked for MPI Hall
Three individuals will be inducted into the Mid-Pacific Institute M Club Athletic Hall of Fame at a gala event on Feb. 5 at Koolau Ballrooms in Kaneohe.
The Kometani brothers, Katsumi (class of 1925) and Harold (class of ’36), and current baseball coach Dunn Muramaru will be inducted.
The Kometani brothers will be honored posthumously. They played a variety of sports at MPI and "exhibited a lifelong commitment to family, team sports and Mid-Pacific," according to MPI officials.
Muramaru, who has led the Owls to ILH and state championships is "a master craftsman in the sport of baseball," said former MPI athletic director Bill Villa.
