Pearl City is looking for a new baseball coach.
The Chargers went 6-9 a year ago under first-year head coach Peter Arakawa, and that included a 1-2 run in the OIA Division I playoffs. They didn’t make the state tournament.
Arakawa played his high school baseball at Moanalua, and he took over for Gavin Concepcion at Pearl City prior to the 2017 season.
Pearl City athletic director Reid Shigemasa is in the process of finding a replacement. No reason was given for the change, but according to a source, Arakawa’s work schedule conflicted with the baseball schedule.
According to Shigemasa, applicants must have prior high school or college coaching experience and a college degree is recommended. Resumes with at least three references can be emailed to Shigemasa at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for resumes is 4 p.m. on Aug. 3.
