Less than three years into his stint at Maryknoll, Eric Kadooka has stepped down as head baseball coach.
Kadooka confirmed his resignation on Thursday night in a text to Hawaii Prep World.
The school has promoted assistant coach Alaka‘i Aglipay, a former player for Kadooka at Punahou, to interim head coach. Aglipay was an All-State selection by the Honolulu Star-Bulletin (utility) his senior year in 2010.
Maryknoll Athletic Director Ben Valle confirmed the news about Aglipay and Kadooka on Thursday night.
“We appreciate Coach Aglipay’s willingness to take on this leadership role and wish Coach Kadooka the best moving forward,” Valle said.
Maryknoll is 4-9 in ILH play with games against Kamehameha and ‘Iolani ahead in regular-season play.
Prior to Maryknoll, Kadooka led Punahou to seven consecutive state titles from 2004-10 with three ILH titles in four years. He also assisted at Kailua before going to Maryknoll, which won Division II state crowns in ’09, ’13, ’14 and ’15 before moving up to D-I.
