MIL championship season has arrived upon us

October 22, 2012 - Robert Collias
Championships, state berths, the agony of defeat, the ecstasy of victory — all is on display right now in the Maui Interscholastic League.

Tonight, Hana and Seabury Hall will battle for the MIL D-II girls volleyball regular-season volleyball crown — and the state berth that goes with it — at 5 p.m. at the Erdman Athletic Center. That big match starts MIL volleyball tournaments week, at the three Upcountry gyms.

On Saturday morning at Kanaiaupuni Stadium, it was an exciting day at the MIL cross country championships. And later Saturday, at the league air riflery championships the state berths and team titles were decided. The MIL boys bowling title came down to the final day of the season.

On the football front, Seabury Hall won the inaugural 8-player title with a 20-19 win over Molokai at Hoolehua on Saturday; Baldwin was far from its best in a 42-20 win over Kamehameha on Friday; and Maui High got an important win over King Kekaulike on Saturday.

An interesting fact that I can't recall ever being the case in 23 season of covering MIL football: Baldwin and Maui High won their games without completing a pass — the Sabers didn't even throw one.

State cross country is on the Big Island Friday, state air riflery is next Tuesday, girls volleyball state tournaments are next Tuesday through Friday, state bowling is next Thursday and Friday, football begins with quarterfinals Nov. 9-10, and state cheerleading is Nov. 17.

Stay right here to find out who will represent the MIL and how they do at the state tournaments.
