Lunas forfeit, Na Alii advance to semifinals

The Maui News – The Maui Interscholastic League Division I baseball tournament opener between Lahainaluna and King Kekaulike scheduled for today at Maehara Stadium in Wailuku was called off due to a lack of players for the Lunas.

The MIL said Tuesday that Lahainaluna would “not be able to field a team” for the first-round game. The fifth-seeded Lunas end the season at 0-13.

Na Alii (4-9), the No. 4 seed, advances to Thursday’s semifinal against defending state champion and MIL regular-season champion Baldwin (11-1). The other semifinal, between Kamehameha Maui and Maui High, is on Friday.

The MIL Division II tournament starts Thursday with the semifinals at Maehara Stadium.
