The Big Island Interscholastic Federation best-of-three Division I and Division II championship series will begin on Friday at Wong Stadium in Hilo.

This year, the series will eliminate doubleheaders, an attempt to minimize the effect of wear-and-tear on pitchers’ arms. The first game of each series will begin on Friday, with the second game on Saturday. If necessary, a final game would be played on Monday, April 25.

In Division II, regular season champion Kamehameha-Hawai’i will take on Konawaena. The Warriors swept Hawai’i Preparatory Academy last weekend, while the Wildcats swept Honoka’a.

Division I regular season champion Waiakea will square off with Hilo. Waiakea swept past Kealakehe to advance to the championship series, while Hilo eliminated Kea’au in two games.

All four representatives will be at the Wally Yonamine Foundation/Hawai’i High School Athletic Association Baseball Championships next month. The Division I tournament will be held on Maui, while Wong Stadium will host the Division II state championship.
