On this day in 1970, Aiea’s Terry Onuma limited Castle to no hits in a 4-0 win. A few weeks later, teammate Gerry Ako did the same.
Onuma, who was injured for his junior season of high school ball, struck out 12 batters and walked only two. The victory gave Leilehua sole possession of first place. Onuma went on to be named a second-team OIA all-star behind Castle’s Guy Nishizawa and Paul Badeaux of Kailua.
Kailua went on to win the OIA when Badeaux beat Onuma in the OIA semifinals. Aiea failed to make it to the state tournament, which was won by Kalani with victories over Molokai, Castle and Waimea. Kailua fell to Waimea in the first round at Iolani.
