Mililani marches past Kamehameha-Kapālama for program’s 4th state title

HONOLULU – For the first time in a decade, a Koa Head trophy will dance back to Mililani for a softball champion. 

The top-seeded Mililani Trojans (17-1) captured the program’s fourth state title on Friday night, running away from 2nd-seeded Kamehameha-Kapālama (14-6) by posting crooked numbers in the back-to-back frames to run-rule the Warriors in five innings, 14-1, and win the 2024 DataHouse/HHSAA Division I Softball Championship. It is the third state championship for the Trojans under the direction of longtime head coach Rose Antonio. 

The victory for the Trojans comes exactly a decade after the last state title – though it was a bit less stressful in the later innings this time around rather than in the 2014 championship game, which was a comeback 2-1 victory over the Campbell Sabers where Mililani scored the tying run in the 6th inning and walked it off with another run coming with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. 

The 2024 edition of the DataHouse/HHSAA Division I Softball Championship looked to be a similar battle early on as the teams played to a 1-1 stalemate through three innings – though a questionable foul ball call against KS-Kapālama’s Mua Williams took what would have been a go-ahead two-run extra base hit away from the Warriors’ shortstop in the bottom of the 3rd inning. The senior standout, committed to play her college softball at the University of Georgia, would later ground out to bring home the tying run as the 3rd inning ended with the sides tied. 

Without taking the momentum fully with the lead, KS-Kapālama quickly saw the team’s title hopes fly away – literally. 

Mililani posted seven runs in the top of the fourth to break open the game, led by University of Hawai’i softball signee Sunni Kahanu’s leadoff home run that put the Trojans back in front. The top half of the frame was capped off by Hawai’i Pacific signee Makayla Pagampao’s 3-run blast, powering Mililani an 8-1 advantage in the blink of an eye. 

On the other side, Mililani standout freshman pitcher Hinano Bautista had Kamehameha-Kapālama off-balance for the majority of the night, facing just four batters extra than needed over the final four innings of the game as the Trojans’ ace of staff posted a pristine line in the win: 5.0 IP, 4 hits, 1 run (0 ER) and a pair of walks, most importantly grabbing her 10th and biggest win of the season. 

The freshman star was assisted by another large scoring outburst by the Mililani offense in the top of the 5th inning as the Trojans brought home six more runs to put the Warriors in jeopardy of being run-ruled. After Pagampao drew a bases-loaded walk to force in a run, Kahanu drilled her second blast over the fence of the night to put the cherry on top of the ever-clicking offense for Mililani. 

Bautista was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player after allowing four runs (2 ER) across 16 innings pitched, leading the Trojans to a perfect 3-0 record through the HHSAA playoffs. Joining her on the All-Tournament team from Mililani, as selected by the media, was sophomore infielder Jerrell Mailo, senior infielder Taryn Hirano, senior centerfielder Sunni Kahanu and senior utility Makayla Pagampao. 

Kamehameha-Kapālama rolled through the opening two rounds of the DataHouse/HHSAA Division I Softball Tournament, outscoring opponents Leilehua and Baldwin by a combined score of 27-4, tallying back-to-back five inning run-rule wins. Following the momentum shift to open the top of the fourth, the Warriors were unable to recover and saw an otherwise successful season end. 

The Warriors had six players named to the All-Tournament team, seeing senior Mua Williams, senior Mariah Antoque, senior Marley Espiau, senior Mikaela Scarborough, junior catcher Kezia Lucas and freshman pitcher Peahi Grilho-Armitage all receive honors for their efforts throughout the state playoffs. 

Mililani becomes just the fourth OIA program to win four or more HHSAA Division I state titles, joining Kailua, Pearl City and Campbell – who the Trojans dispatched a round prior with a hard-fought 3-2 win in the semifinals.

Moanalua is still king in OIA boys volleyball.

Na Menehune held off a late comeback by Mililani in five sets to win their fifth straight league crown Wednesday night at Radford’s Jim Alegre Gymnasium.

Set scores were 25-19, 25-15, 27-29, 23-25 and 15-10.

A year after winning title No. 11 in school history with a trio of Hawai’i-bound signees, Moanalua (14-0) did it with mainly new faces.

“There were big expectations for the seniors that are coming in because of the star-studded senior group that we had last year and so they came into their own and they earned this as a team and they figured it out as a team in the end,” said Moanalua coach Alan Cabanting, who has led Na Menehune to 10 of their 12 total league titles.

Ezekiel Sablan was one of those new faces as he put down 20 kills and was one of three players to record double-digit kills for the victors.

“It feels great to be a part of this team and to help them with another OIA winning streak and it feels great just to be here right now,” Sablan said.

Jaycen Bush was also key with 14 kills and eight digs and D’Angelo Ross had 13 kills and hit .440 for the match.

On the other side of the net Tyler Duranceau had a double-double of 20 kills and 14 digs and Aris Mateo had 18 kills to lead the Trojans (12-1) in the loss.

Mililani was seeking its first league crown since 2017.

History was made Wednesday night.

Waialua captured the program’s first-ever OIA boys volleyball championship in reverse sweep-fashion over Kailua in the league’s Division II title match at Radford’s Jim Alegre Gymnasium.

Set scores were 21-25, 22-25, 25-16, 25-22, 15-10.

It was a total team effort for the Bulldogs, who won their sixth straight contest to finish OIA play with a 9-3 record.

Jaris Ablao had a double-double of 13 kills and 10 digs, Keoni Nahoopii put down 12 kills, Shane Kelly had 11 kills and Dayton Quick registered nine kills and seven blocks. Setter Cyres Lacar was also solid with 39 assists, 17 digs and five kills.

“I wanted that banner,” said Quick. “Individual success is awesome, but this is a team sport and I came here for that banner be hung up in my gym with my teammates and our year on it.”

Waialua adjusted its lineup after the second set and made adjustments that saw the Bulldogs take a commanding 19-11 lead in the third set and start the fourth set on a 9-0 run. The Bulldogs also hit .147 and .125 in the first two sets but hit .321 in the third set.

“When you have a big lead like that, you have to keep it up,” said Quick. “Volleyball is a game of momentum and my coaches say ‘first team to grab onto the momentum and hold on, almost always comes out on top.’”

The Bulldogs won two of their three matches that went to five sets this season while the Surfriders (7-6) are 0-3.

Kaleb Cui had a match-high 22 kills in the loss to lead Kailua, who was seeking its first OIA title since 2014.
