Hilo Little League crowned minor league champs

Pictured Row 1 from L-R (Kneeling): Izen Nishioka, Kensen Fessenden-Grace; Row 2 from L-R: Kama Yamashita, Jaxon Arbles, Rush Cabatbat, Chace Hirota, Kaisen Agpalza, Tate Yamamoto, Madden Sakoda, Austyn Velez; Row 3 L-R: Coach Lance Rios, Cash Icari, Coach Kendric Nishioka, Zayven Gonsalves-Rios, Karter Moses, Manager Jon Arbles and Ayden Arbles. Hilo Little League's minor league All-Star team captured the Minor League Hawai‘i District 4 Championship over Kona on Monday at Pualani Park, winning the clinching game 9-3. West Hawaii Today and Hawaii Tribune-Herald incorrectly reported in Tuesday's paper that Kona won the championship. Both papers regret the error, and would like to congratulate Hilo on taking the title home! (Hilo Little League/Courtesy Image)
