Players included Connor Brown, Braedon Ingalls, Noah Dizol, Ian Owens, Madilyn Jardine, and Taylor Sullivan. They had an undefeated season (12-0) against Kohala and Kona and most made the Kona PONY Mustang Allstar team. Braedon Ingalls was considered the most improved player by all HIA coaches.

Parker School Allstars included Noah, Ian, Maddy and Taylor. They joined other kids from Waimea, Kona, and Kohala to form the Westside Allstars, led by HIA coaches Mel Jardine, Ivan Look, and Danrick Perreira. They worked hard everyday to be prepared to take on Hilo’s best for a spot at the State championship. They played a doubleheader at the Hilo Boys & Girls Club on Saturday June 12 against the Hilo Allstars. The first game, Westside had a late start and a couple of errors in the first inning, the pitching from both teams was outstanding, but Westside lost 7-1.

Westside rallied against Hilo for 1 more chance in the best of 3 tournament. Hilo came hitting from the start and Westside battled back with 5 RBI’s in 2 innings. The game came down to 7-6 Hilo in the last inning with 2 outs and a full count. Caden Perreira-Lau hit a bomb out to centerfield, it looked like a guarantee homerun, but Hilo’s awesome centerfielder got out there, jumped up and caught the ball! It was the best game of the year!
