Marcus Doi socked a two-run single in the top of the seventh to give second-seeded Mid-Pacific the lead and the Owls went on to rally past unseeded Mililani 3-1 today in the Division I final of the Wally Yonamine Foundation/HHSAA Baseball State Championships.

A boisterous crowd of 2,427 at Murakami Stadium saw MPI (14-4) win its fifth state crown, all under coach Dunn Muramaru. It is the Owls’ first state championship since 2002. Muramaru was drenched, thanks to a Gatorade shower, but was smiling as medals were presented to both teams. 

“They just took care of business. For a while, I thought we’d lost our sixth championship game. It was one of the better championship games,” Muramaru said.

Mililani finished 12-8, a Cinderella team that nearly shocked the Owls.
