Two Big Island Interscholastic Federation standouts were named Monday night to the Wally Yonamine Foundation / Hawai`i High School Athletic Association Division II Baseball All-Tournament Team.

Konawaena first baseman / outfielder  Kileona Manzano and Kamehameha-Hawai`i second baseman Chad Teshima were listed on the 12-player team, voted on by on-site staff of the HHSAA.

Manzano has been described by his coach, Dave Distel, as a tough hitter to retire at the plate. The senior batted .500 during the three-day tournament, collecting four hits in eight at-bats and driving in four runs. He was listed as an outfielder in the all-tourney class.

On the season, Manzano led the team with a .493 batting average, hitting 34-for-69 on the season. He hit a home run and drove in 30 runs, also a team lead.

Konawaena finished the tournament in sixth place after falling to Kapa`a by the score of 3-2 in six innings Saturday.


Teshima, the second base selection on the all-tourney team, helped guide his team to the state championship game, where they lost to Maryknoll 14-0 Saturday night in five innings. The senior batted 1-for-1 in the title game and pitched an inning of scoreless relief in the losing effort.


Maryknoll starting pitcher Chase Uyema was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. Uyema picked up a pair of wins in the tournament against Konawaena and Kamehameha-Hawai`i to secure the Spartans’ second championship and first since 2009.
