With the 2018 All-State baseball team coming out on Sunday, we are remembering teams of the past. This time it is the 1990s.
The decade began with a three-peat by Dunn Muramaru‘s Mid-Pacific club and with another one by the Iolani Raiders of Herbert Yoshimura and Dean Yonamine before the Molokai Farmers took the first of their two titles.
Familiar names to look for include Kekoa Kaluhiokalani of Waianae, Aiea’s Nolan Tokuda, Kailua shortstop Corey Ishigo, Kalaheo’s Alika Smith, Jamie Aloy of Baldwin, Campbell’s Rory Pico, Dane Sardinha of Kamehameha, Iolani’s Keoni DeRenne, Punahou pitcher Justin Wayne, Iolani volleyball guru Kainoa Obrey and Shane Komine of Kalani. Scroll to the end to relive the greatness of Waipahu’s Jerome Williams.
