On this day in 1994, Waiakea ace Onan Masaoka stuck out 11 batters in five innings but hit the wall and Kalaheo won 7-1.
Jesse Brown won the mound dual for the Mustangs and Alika Smith went 2-for-3 with two runs scored and an RBI. Brown allowed just four hits.
Masaoka, who went on to a big-league career, threw 109 pitches in five innings against patient Kalaheo.
In other state tournament games, Castle’s Troy Yoshimatsu threw no-hitter in a 2-1 win over Mid-Pacific, Waimea beat Pearl City 8-1 and Maui took out Mililani 3-2.
Yoshimatsu was named the state pitcher of the year ahead of Brown, who went 9-0 during the season.
