‘Iolani is losing two spring sports coaches, according to athletic director Carl Schroers.

Baseball coach Brent Shimokawa and softball coach Corey Okamura will not return for next season.

“I am proud of both of them,” Schroers said. “They gave their heart and soul to a bunch of our students. They were both well liked and kept a high standard. It (the reason for leaving) was time issues for both of them.”

This spring, ‘Iolani went 4-11 under Okamura and 5-11 under Shimokawa.

Schroers said he expects a lengthy selection process.

Raiders co-athletic director Wendell Look is accepting applications for the baseball and softball positions through May 22. Resumes can be sent to football@iolani.org.
