The Big Island Interscholastic Federation was one inning away from a member school making a second straight trip to the Wally Yonamine Foundation / Hawai`i High School Athletic Association Division I Baseball Championship Game.

A member of the team that got close this year, Hilo’s Jodd Carter, and Waiakea’s Caleb Freitas-Fields, who hoped to help the Warriors repeat as state champions, were still recognized, however, as members of the All-Tournament team following Tuesday’s championship game, which was won by Mid-Pacific Institute.

Carter’s Vikings fell in the semifinals to eventual state runner-up Mililani, but the junior outfielder provided a steady bat to keep Hilo in the running for a championship berth. The Vikings’ left-fielder batted 5-for-7 in the tournament with three doubles and four runs batted in.

The Vikings have lost in the semifinals in each of the last two seasons. Hilo’s third-place game against Campbell was cancelled because of poor weather and field conditions in Maui.

Freitas-Fields, a freshman pitcher / outfielder, was called to pitch in the Warriors’ loss to Mid-Pacific on short rest and notice after Kodi Medeiros was not able to pitch the game. He took the loss in the Owls’ 5-1 victory in the tournament’s quarterfinals.


In the Warriors’ only win of the tournament, a 14-3 win over Leilehua in the opening round of the tournament, the youngster batted 3-for-5 with four runs batted in.


Waiakea was eliminated from the tournament after losing to Maui High School on Friday in a consolation bracket game. They finished the tournament with a 1-2 record.
